2010 Sundance 2300 RE. My 2004 model camper in same location got way better reception in same spot.I tried taking off my Jensen flat screen on back wall to see if there was a boost switch like my old camper, but it dont budge. I dont want to force anything so looking to hear from someone if unit comes straight up to unhook from bracket. Also wondering if anyone else has issues with tv fading in and out?. Seems to me once antenna is in right spot it should stay good. Thanks for any advice

You probably do have a booster but it might be in the bedroom. Look around in there.
Red light = booster on.

Peace

I found that pretty much every cable connection on ours was loose. I went thru and tightened which helped a lot. Ended up buying a stand alone TV antenna and found it worked great.

Thanks for the replies. No booster switch in bedroom. Still trying to get tv off the wall. Still no luck. Called factory service and he wasn't sure. Thought it pulls out then up. Anyone ever taken their TV off? Also wondering if antenna cable is one continuous cable or is there connections from top to where it comes through wall to tv?

On some of the TVs, there are 2 rails mounted to the wall. A bracket is mounted to the TV. The bracket has hooks that hang on the top rail, and 1 or 2 screws at the bottom that contact the back side of the lower rail to lock the TV in place. Use a flashlight and mirror to see if you have that type of arrangement.

Our living room TV is set up like Dan described. I had to remove it a couple of times so what I did was find the 4 screws holding the mounting board to the wall. I removed the whole mounting board. Then I could rotate the TV over to get to the bottom screws. When I reinstalled I mounted the TV back on the mounting board then the whole thing back to the wall. Once I was in there I could check all the connections, and wiring to make sure it was tight.
But the bad thing was the wife seen all of the dust, wood chips in the space so she just HAD to clean it.
