Antenna Power

I don't have power to my antenna and was wondering if anyone knows where the fuse might be located. There are no wiring diagrams in any of my books and can't find a fuse marked for TV antenna. Thought it might be an inline fuse hidden somewhere. Thanks, John H...

Is the red light on the antenna switch on?? You can remove the antenna switch and check power at the connection there. Might be an inline fuse into the switch. Otherwise. power to the antenna is probably just off the 12V feed on that side of the coach. Are there any 12v lights close to the antenna switch?? do they work OK??

Noel, I have the antenna controller out and the 12V wires are blue+ and White-. There is no power there and I'm sure it's a fuse blown somewhere, but just don't know where to look beyond where I have already. Everything else 12V around it works. Just the feed coming in to power the antenna is dead.

Call the service department at Thor(Damon) in Elkhart. The service folks there are really nice and probably can tell you immediately. Have your model number and date available, they may be able to send you wiring diagrams and anything else you need. Its one of the best service and customer service in the RV industry.

I am going to 2nd Noel's suggestion.. But with a request.. Let me know where it is (I drive a Damon too)

The antenna booster is such a power hog (NOT) that it's usually tapped into another circuit.. One trailer I visited it was on the Radio fuse. IF you have ANYTHING else in the rig that does not work.. Look for that fuse.

And tell us where you find it. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that. Never checked the radio, but I will. It may be on an in-line fuse. I will post with anything I find....

Well, I fixed it today. It wasn't on with the radio, but I discovered the dome light was out. Went back to the schematics and found a blown fuse. Replaced it and all was back to normal. The fuse for the dome light is located under the hood and is a 15 amp. Power then goes from dome light to antenna. John H...
