The booster switch we are referring to is a single plate with a push button switch and generally a single coaxial connector on the plate. On the back of this plate is a circuit board with at least has three coaxial connectors 1. Cable In 2. Antenna IN 3. one or more TV out. In the case of a singlr TV out you can connect one TV to the connector on the plate itself and to a second TV using the TV out on the circuit board. In the event you would have a third TV you would need a one to two splitter connected to the single TV out on the circuit board. Now the output of the booster/switch is send to two TVs. More TVs more splitters.

In regard to the actual OTA signal amplifier, it is in the head of the antenna. Booster/switch merely sends power to the antenna head

The amplifier is probably located in the antenna head on the roof. Wingard has a "filter/switch" on the "booster panel" mounted behind the TV (or in the ceiling). That is the power supply/switch unit. When you push that button and the green light comes on, all that "unit" is doing is providing 12 VDC to the amplifier/booster that's "on the roof". As for splitters, every model trailer will have (or not have) splitters as required to connect every TV location.

Now, as for "troubleshooting your specific problem"..... If all the TV's operate normally on OTA with the rooftop antenna, then the splitters/connections to every TV location are intact, otherwise, you would not be able to receive OTA signal at each TV. So, the problem lies either with the booster switch or with the RV input wiring from the "cable connector" on the side of the RV and the co-ax and/or splitters run from that "outside cable connector" to the booster switch. From that booster switch to the TV's, the same "signal flow" is used, so if it works on OTA, it'll work on cable. IOW, from the switch to the TV's is OK, focus your efforts on verifying the booster switch is operational and all the co-ax and connections from outside to the booster switch.

I found 2 splitters in the bedroom ceiling close to the bedroom tv, one was orange cables which were for satellite connections that should not have splitters, the other was gray cable for OTA/cable, both connected wrong with the incoming cable connected to the outgoing connection.
Also when you switch from OTA to cable you must go to the tv settings, switch to appropriate input & scan the channels, this must be done every time you move the rv or switch inputs.

I mapped out the connection on my 325, there are two output tv feeds and a 1 radio feed. The bedroom , living room and outdoor jacks were on 1 feed - splitter somewhere, figured behind the entertainment center but never put eyes on it. the garage tv was on its own feed. There is jpg on this thread from last year - I forgot 1 lead , believe it was the radio antenna wire.

http://www.keystoneforums.com/forums...ad.php?t=34504

My final test was bringing in known good cable to the bedroom, pulling the lead into the booster and see crappy signals through the booster to tvs. I replaced all of the coax ends but nothing helped till the booster was replaced. Bad thing is with the number of connections (radio and TV) you really cant replace it with an off the shelf Winegar unit.

Ok so I found all the coaxial cables. YES they where in the wall behind the power switch. Got fooled because the coaxial cables where connected to small wires! Thought they where power. Will get a barrel and push one straight thru if that works then a new power switch/board. Thank you for all the help, it really made a difference.

My plight. . .

So 2.5 years into my Fuzion 420 the booster switch did go bad. We were in Charleston, Spring of 2018, for family reunion over Easter. Here are pics of rig side showing the two cable ports which was in the cabinet over master bed. The second pic showes all the pigtails mentioned in earlier posts. Seems the wiring in the switch crapped out. Ordered a new one on the road and had delivered to next keystone dealer in Myrtle Beach. Installed it and problem solved.
There was a lot of wire stuffed into the slot the switch came out of. Including a splitter (my rig has 4 tv’s). Got it all back into the hole and it has worked ever since.

There is a splitter for the cable/antenna side in the wall behind the living area TV, that also feeds the garage TV. You can get to it by taking off the wall plate behind the living room TV and pulling the wire until the splitter comes out the hole.

Finally got the booster/wall plate, installed yesterday. Antenna is working, dry camping for a couple of weeks no cable available. Will update when I get to a camp ground with ctv.
