Antenna Power Source????

We bought this 5th Wheel (2013 Redwood - 38 RL) in October and we just used the antenna for TV because we could get 40+ stations. Now we're in our summer spot in Montana and want to hook up to the cable here in the park, but we can't find the power source to switch from antenna to cable. Everyone thinks it's behind the TV and it is NOT!!!! There is no switch, no little light, no nothing except an electrical outlet and a coax connection. NO LITTLE SWITCH OR LIGHT. So my question is where is it or is there something else we need to do to turn off the antenna and be able to receive the cable. I called Redwood Customer Service and they were no help at all. Hopefully, someone out there can help us. Thanks

The antenna booster will be in a cabinet in the bedroom, mine is in the left one next to bedroom tv. Turn off the booster & go to menu on your tv to switch from antenna to cable & rescan the tv, every time you move to a different location you have to scan the tvs.

I have a 40RL that I believe is the same layout as yours. The small antenna booster switch is in the left (if you're looking to the back) cabinet over the couch in the rear of your rig. My tv is over the fireplace on the street side.

Mine is also in the left cabinet in the front bedroom.. If it is on , I am unable to get any cable channels.. Once it is off , I go into the TV menu and rescan for new channels...

Just to throw a curve, on our '12 36RL the booster was in the cabinet to the right of the TV. So get yourself a flash light and start looking.

Thanks...quite by accident, I found the switch this morning in the cabinet to the right of the "bedroom" TV. Will make a note of it in the owners manual in case we ever sell this one.

Mine was in the bedroom TV cabinet, left side. I replaced the factory one with the one below and replaced antenna as well. So far it works great!!
