Adding a Digital TV Amplifier To an RV

by Dan

We have an amplified wall plate with a 12 v outlet that we connect our TV thru. We are getting pixeling on our TV. Station will come in for a while and then pixel out. I bought a 1 port bi directional TV signal booster to see if it would help with the pixeling. How do I hook this up to my TV? Can I hook it up directly to the wall plate amplifier?


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

Yes it is safe to hook up the PCT 1-PORT BI-DIRECTIONAL CABLE TV HDTV AMPLIFIER SIGNAL BOOSTER (which I highly recommend) to the front Coax Cable Connection on your RV's TV antenna wall plate.

What you do not want to do is connect the amplifier to the Coax connections on the back of the wall plate as that cable has voltage running through it that could damage your new amplifier.
