Essex switch from cable to air antenna

I can't get any tv's to switch from cable to air antenna, the Essex manual says there is a switch box, is anybody familiar with this?

Just found a post on this subject from back in May, the amplifier switch is just behind the passenger seat & you have to change the input on each tv from the television menus.
I now remember the tech showing me the switch, hope this isn't the beginning of something serious ?

Not sure why you'd be concerned....it is what it is. You just need to be sure the red light is on when using the batwing...that's an amp which you're using. Turn off when using all other sources. BTW...you can plug your cable internet line into the fitting in the electrical bay then set a modem on this coax fitting and you'll have cable internet available. (Red light off) Of course, you'll need to arrange for such service with your cable provider.

Slabman,
I should have phrased the last comment on my post differently, what I was trying to say was " I forgot what the tech had told me about the tv only two days earlier & I was hoping this wasn't a sign that I was losing my memory".
Thanks for the response.

LOL! Gee, that's NEVER happened to me! ....at least today, anyway. IF you have bot the Winegard Traveler and a satt. dome like I do, you'll drive yourself nuts each time, trying to remember how to re-set the receiver and TV's for whichever dish you are operating from.
