King Antenna Problems

I recently bought a 2017 Winni Minni 22R. It has a newer Samsung smart tv and a King antenna. The antenna appears to work fine and I get all blue lights as well as the red power light. The power injector shows the green led when turned on as well but the TV shows low or no reception. I've traced coax cables and tried by-passing things like the splitter for cable and rear bedroom television and even tried replacing a couple of coax cables all to no avail. I'm ready to give up.

How far are you from any TV stations? #0 to 35 miles is all you can expect from a King antenna.

Do you have the Owners manuals for the MH? You know the big black case full of stuff? If not, then get on the Winnebago web site and look under the owners section and then Owners Resources. Download all of your manuals.
I say all of this because the Owners manual should help clear up some of your issues as far as line up and actual indications. Hopefully.

Thanks for the responses. I removed the inside parts of the King antenna and re-tightened the coax then reinstalled the parts and all worked so I'm good.
