Where Is The Switch To Turn On My RV's TV Antenna Booster?

Just purchased the above RV and can't find the booster for the TV. The previous owners never used it so they didn't know where it was. The manual doesn't say where it was.

ANSWER: Greetings John thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.


I am going to assume that you know for a fact that your antenna has a power signal booster. There are two common ways that an RV antenna with a power signal booster can get its power. They are listed below.

RV TV Power Booster Wall Switch: This wall plate and switch assembly is usually located in a cabinet next to your RV's front TV or in the cabinet where your RV's Video Distribution Center (also known as a Video Control Center) is located (if your RV is equipped with one).

The wall switch will have a coax TV cable coming out of it. This coax cable will either be going directly to the back of your TV or into the Video Control Center. On that plate will also be a tiny switch or push-button that you use to turn on the power to the antenna signal booster. It may also have an LED light that comes on when you turn on the booster. It may also have an additional 12 Volt DC receptacle to plug in 12 volt appliances.

Built-In Power Supply In The Video Distribution Center: Some RV's come with a Video Distribution Center (Video Control Center) that has a built-in power supply to power the booster on your antenna.

I hope that this information has been helpful to you.

Here is a comment on this topic from the Everything-About-RVing.com Facebook Fan Page.

Dick Reed: Ours is a little switch located on a faceplate with a 12 volt power port (cigarette lighter hole). When you turn it on a little red light comes on. Ours is located on the underside of an upper cabinet over the dinette.

Hope this helps.
