No 12v to TV antenna

It's a 2006 Intrigue 530 with a Concord TV antenna. I'm assuming it's a boosted antenna like the Winegard and Jack are. I have no 12v on the coax to the roof and I can't find a switch in the house anywhere.

Help anyone?

The Concord that I trashed requires a coax from the roof into the rig to transfer a signal.

The coax from the antenna was hooked into a booster before going to the BOMB or the TVs.

Your coach may be different than mine but my booster did not work. My over the door awing motor was shot(burned up from water) another story plus one house light in the slide did not work. After finding the problem with the motor and finding the right burned fuse I cut the wires to the motor until I could get it fixed replaced the fuse and the light in the slide worked and the booster worked. Took me a while to figure it out

Thank you gentlemen. Problem is, I can't find that booster.

On my coach the booster is located behind the panel above passenger side. The panel contains the switches for the front slides and the tv antenna controller. Behind the panel is a silver box that measures about 4 by 8 inches. The box is mounted to the wall and is plugged into a 110 outlet. All of your tv and incoming cable and antenna coax cables should feed into this booster. When I purchased my coach not all of my AV equipment worked. I got out my schematics and followed every coax cable, found that some were not connected to the booster. I reconnected everything and now all my AV equipment works perfectly. The box may not be in the same location on your rig, but I bet it's close to the antenna switch. Good luck, when I opened mine up it looked like a birds nest. I suspect the builder just lobbed the stuff in there and closed the panel. Also, when you open the panel check your electrical slide switch connections, mine were about to come loose.

I called Concord about the antenna on my 2000 Magna and was told the Concord on my coach did not have an amplifier in the antenna head. They also said I should just bypass the amplifier because it did no good with the UHF channels being used by the current digital TV signals. I removed the amplifier and noticed no difference in reception.

I've since replaced the Concord with a Jack but I no longer get 12 volt to the Jack for its amplifier. I've purchased a separate amplifier that I connect between the Jack input to the coach and the control box. The amp helps but it is not as good as the amplifier in the Jack.
