Television

Our 2004 30SKW came without any televisions. We are wanting to add them back to the camper. What I am wondering is will we need to upgrade the antenna or other components to work with a modern tv? Thanks for any suggestions.

Hook the TV up do a channel scan and see if you get digital channels... If you don't then upgrade the antenna.
That is what I would do...

90% of new televisions are digital tuner ready. Bought an Insignia to put in our 1992 Excel Legacy "guest house". Plugged it in, connected it to the coax connector on the wall, raised the antenna and turned on the signal amplifier (small button next to the coax connection). Went into the tv settings menu and did an auto channel scan using the "antenna" option and bam! 20-plus free HDTV channels 45 miles from the nearest transmitter. Thought I would have to add a box, but I was pleasantly surprised that this 26 yo camper had the signal amplifier.

If you have a working antenna and the booster still works you will receive any and all digital channels. Newer antennas may be better but the older ones will still work.
