Hooking Up the Livingroom TV to Digital Roof Antenna

I have a 2008 Montana 3400RL and I can't seem to get the roof antenna to work with my livingroom tv. There are 3 connections... can anyone help?

Have you selected the proper input from the menu on the TV?

just on trailer antenna? make sure your tv is set correctly. and, make sure your amp. switch is on....shouldn't be a problem. just try each input if the first input doesn't work.

yes I had the television set properly. I was hoping that someone with a 2008 Montana 3400RL could tell me how to set the jumper and which connection to set the tv to.

our coax was bad from the TV to the input.

I apologize... maybe I'm not being clear. I have 3 connections, 2 on one plate and 1 on another plate. The two plates are right next to one another. There is also a jumper that is installed between the 2 connections on the one plate in some situations. If you have this setup can you tell me how to configure it so I can get my tv to work with my roof digital antenna.

I have the same set up on my 2006. I'm going from memory but I think this is how it was wired. The plate with the two coax terminals has a looping cable/jumper on it. This part I'm sure of. Best memory serves me, the other plate with the single coax has a cable from it to the input side of the DVD. A cable from the output side of the DVD goes to the antennae/tv connection on the television. Mine worked fine from the factory but end up changing all the coax ends as time and bad roads deteriorated their ability to carry signals.

As others have written, the amplifier in the bedroom closet must be on. This is indicated by the green light being illuminated. The double RF plate has the cable from the antenna, but you never know if it is the upper or lower one.
