Antenna Booster circuit

Does anyone know where to find the antenna booster on a 2007 Fleetwood Southwind 37c? Cable connection is fuzzy at every campground and I was told to turn the booster off, however I have no idea where it is...

Mine is on the coax, between the antenna and the tv. Follow the coax from either end.

The actual booster may be in the antenna fed by the coax.

You may have a selector box someplace or bad part in the box.

My 08 Bounder had a white switch plate in the cabinet above on the passenger side . It had a small black button and a green light.

There are a couple of places that booster switch/light can be. One is on a multi-switch box that controls the direction of all your signals and, to which TV all those signals go. It will have a light on it when it's on. Another place is a separate wall mounted switch plate, similar to a residence switch plate for turning on a light in a room. It can be mounted where it's really visible or, it can be mounted where you have to stick your head almost in the TV/Video compartment to see it. It too "should" have a light on it when that signal is being boosted.

For some boosters, (aka: antenna amplifiers), the ON/OFF switch is located on a BOMB, (Box Of Many Buttons), to which the coax cables from the TV antenna, the cable input coax, the TV set(s), etc. are connected.


8 BUTTON BOMB (BOX OF MANY BUTTONS)



14 Button BOMB (BOX OF MANY BUTTONS

Some have their own ON/OFF switch on a 2-3/4" X 3-1/2" wall/ceiling plate like this...(with or without the "antenna connector" and/or the "12VDC outlet"):

WINEGARD WALL/CELING PLATE
