Have a 2001 34 foot coach. Have no 12v power at the antenna plate inside the cabinet above the driver. Cannot find a fuse so marked when I remove the lower panels. This is the power for the factory installed sat/tv Winegard antenna. We have never used this antenna, since we just use the DISH antenna. But want to be able to get local over the air channels when we wish.

Hello & Welcome Rich & Cork:

There is a push button on/off switch on the cover for the antenna for the antenna booster. It is on the far side behind the Coax Cable outlet in the entertainment center of the 2001. You have to reach behind the cable and push the button and an indicator light will come on. Turn the antenna booster off if you connect to external cable TV. I hope this info helps. I have not had to look for the fuse for this item yet so I can not help you with its location.

Dave, thanks for the reply, but there is no power there. That is why I am hoping someone knows where a fuse might be. The power lines go down through the center post on the windshield and then into the black morass that is the heater ducting and various wire harnesses under the dash! If no one knows, I will probably just run another power wire up there. Know there was no power there when we had the satellite installed.

Thanks again.

I believe the 2001 and 2002 coaches are wired the same. On ours there is a row of 12 Volt DC fuses located by the main AC breaker panel near the bath area of the coach. One of these is labeled "Antenna Booster" and is a 15 AMP fuse.

Gary, thanks for the answer. Checked and I have the "Antenna Booster" fuse also. Checked and it is ok, but no power at the switch in the cabinet. Will continue my search. Thanks again.

I pulled this fuse and it does kill the 12V power to the Antenna Amplifier plate in the front overhead cabinet.

Found it! Dave thanks for verifying the power for me. Took a few hours, but chased the problem to the power connection at the basement TV outlet. In the past there must have been a power problem at the 12v lighter socket built into the TV connection plate. There was power at the outlet. When I removed the plate, I noticed that there was a second wire that was not connected. Used the ohmmeter to verify continuity to the antenna booster above the drivers seat. That was the wire! Soldered it to other wire and now my booster works.

As an aside, I had assumed that the power went down the center of the windshield where a bunch of other wires are located. That was not the case. The wires go across the compartments at the ceiling. In my troubleshooting I took out the generator switch and the Xantrex power plate above the dinette. This is where I broke into the blue wire connection and verified continuity to the booster power wire. This is the same color wire as at the booster and the 12v breaker panel.
