Plumbing & TV issues

I have a 07' Bounder. I've been tinkering around getting the coach ready for a trip, (soon I hope) and I have found that the rear TV (RCA flat screen) is not picking up regular antennae channels. It works with satellite & DVD but not the regular Wineguard antennae. I haven't checked the cable side but I'm figuring that works fine. The main cabin TV works without an issue.
I've checked the connections and all seem to be correct. Thing is, it's worked in the past & no work has been done anywhere near the TV. Your thoughts / suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Item 2. I want to change out my lavatory faucet. My wife found one she likes at a big box store. Can I use a faucet designed for residential use in the coach?
Again I thank you for thoughts on these issues.

Can't speak for all installations, but the bathroom faucet in my unit needed replacement and I simply went to Lowes and picked out a replacement. Simple to pull out the old and install the new. Standard fittings, hole sizes, etc. The only thing is that the orig installation did not have a hole drilled for the drain "stopper"pull and I did not feel like doing it either.

Welcome to irv2 garyricc.
You can place a household faucet with flexible hose connections to match plumbing.
If you have a control board for your coax connectors from TV's and cable, ant make sure you have buttons pushed in for correct source.
Enjoy the forums and do post often.

Adding to "007" regarding the rear TV. Make sure the signal input setting on the TV is set to scan antenna or "air" input.

Regarding the faucet: Standard, nothing special about RV products here, the one from Lowes should work well.

Re: THE TV.. I'm much better at that kind of thing hands on but ... A 2007 TV might be analog/digital cable and not ATSC capable.. That could be the issue, Feb of 2009 I think it was they went to all ATSC. But there are several other possible issues.. ONE is the switch,, Tell us more about your TV, and epically the switch box that selects the source (one switch or many is all I need to know) If ti's many, the switch could be toast.

Also the el-cheapo cable used in many motor homes, The losses could be enough to make a differnece.
Home is where I park it!
