With a BOMB one needs the power on and the button that selects the Antenna for the TV in question. That power is the light on the box and the antenna power. If you have them set correctly then you need to go into the TV setup and make sure it expects an over the air signal then do a channel scan.

You have 8 television stations within 60 miles of you. All are UHF so may be blocked by hills around you. If you go here:

AntennaPoint.com - Antenna Locator

Put in your zip (24354) and it will give you a map of where to point your antenna.

Hope That Helps

Adds BOMB and HTH to your vocabulary. ;-))
We used the antenna at the last two sites and it worked fine--know the procedure so it's not that but thanks. The camp host is receiving stations so something isn't right. Don't understand BOMB and HTH.

I know you are right. In fact, it will probably be fun at the end of the week! Thanks!

BOMB = Box Of Many Buttons

HTH = Hope That Helps

Both spelled out in the text above them. ;-)

You may or may not have a BOMB. HTH. ;-)

We had the button pushed in instead of out -- had it backwards for cable versus antenna. This was not our last snafu. We feel like complete doofuses.

You can buy 12 volt fuses that glow when they have been blown. You might want to get those and replace all the fuses in your fuse panel. If you have another fuse blow it will help a lot with your troubleshooting.

I am not familiar with your coach. I know my allegro bus has 5 different locations with 12 volt fuses in it. Like someone suggested get a wiring diagram and call the manufacturer to find out where all of the fuses are located. Make notes in the wiring diagram where the fuses are and what circuits they power.

Also at some point turn in your learning experience. Turn off all AC power, turn off the breaker at the shore power pole. do not start your generator, turn off your inverter. Now with all of those off. See what works in your coach. What lights, fans, etc. These are all items that run off of 12vdc and will have an automotive type fuse that protects it. If they do not work you can look for the auto style fuse.

All AC items will probably be on a breaker.

We have all been there. Some of us learned some of it before we had a motor home but we all had our share of learning experiences! ;-)

FWIW if you have a good walk through with a good tech there is too much to absorb. If you get a bad tech you do not get the information. Either way a total newbie does not get it all. I'm beginning to see why folks get multi day pickup slots at the factory. Owner training... ;-)
