Ours is located above the driver in the cabinet behind the vcr and switch box mounted on the back wall. The power switch for it is 12v and located in the cabinet above the passenger. The way to tell if its working is to go on the roof, remove the coax to the antenna and measure the voltage at the end of the cable (with the switch on) for 12vdc ish.

Mine is in the driver's side top compartment where the Stereo is attached to the sidewall. It has a little green light on it with a cigarette lighter plug.
It has a little push button to turn it on and off.

Hi danny124,
You have a question that has quite a few correct answers. I think Newmar changed this every hour. All I can tell you is if you have a Winegard Amplifier Distribution Switch, the booster is the push button on the far left.

Our is behind the BOMB (Box Of Many Buttons) and VCR (You do remember what those are right?) behind the fascia plate against the front wall kind of over the drivers head.

Are you referring to the power on/off button on the Wineguard unit? And yes, I do have a Wineguard distribution unit.

Hi danny124,
Yep, that powers the antenna. It should be on only to receive off air broadcasts. It should be off for Sat, cable and DVD input.

I wil have to check for sure on mine. But I thought my antenna booster switch was above the passenger side where all the switches are?

The switch is over the passenger but the OP was asking about the booster which is above the driver.

Gary.

Why would you need to turn it off for cable or SAT. Does it change the number of channels received or the quality of the picture??
