Just one idea. Make sure the input source on the tv is set for antenna

Do you have a wall plate with a switch, light ANT connection and 12 volt out.. OR

A Sensar Pro wall plate with two digital displays 3 buttons and some LED'


A Box of many buttons?

IF you have the BOMB.. then there are three possible errors:
1: Wrong button pushed, Make sure ANT is selected for bedroom tv (Usually TV 2 but do it for all devices)

2: Bad switch.. Cycle switches like 50 times for each switch, this may clean them.

3: and this applies to all 3 of the systems above: Bad cable or connection.. I've seen them work loose and fall out.

NOTE: Many RV's are wired with lowest bidder RG-59,, Alas, as frequency goes up this cable is worse and worse.... MANY TV stations moved "UP" the band a bit or even to a higher band when they went digital.. For example in Detroit the TV says 7-# (1,2 or 3) but the channel it is receiving is 41 (here in SC where I am now it's 7-1 or 2 on the TV and channel seven,, NOTE the loss of the -3 and you will understand why they did this).

Also... Make sure the Bedroom TV is a modern ATSC digital wide screen, if it an old CRT or "Sqauarish" flat screen it won't pick up modern ATSC TV, just NTSC, a converter will fix that (about 50 bucks) or a new TV (I did both but .. well it's a long story.. I do not often watch live TV and my DVR's are older NTSC only devices)
Home is where I park it!

We don't get anything on the Bedroom TV when on the antenna. The TV is 2006 vintage. Works ok on cable though. Haven't felt the need to swap it out yet.

If you have switch box, make sure input is set to antenna for TV 2 (if that's BR TV designation) Then use TV menu to set input from the port the antenna is connected to. Then your TV will have to search and learn the stations available. If your TV doesn't have that function, it might be older analog model. A converter box can help find digital stations in the area.
