Antenna

I just moved to a city with multiple TV stations and campsite does not provide cable. Can someone tell me how to utilize the antenna? Not sure where it is but surely there is one somewhere.

The antenna should be located on the roof of your unit. I have a TT and the antenna is operated by a hand crank in the ceiling of the master bedroom. Make sure you have the proper cord connecting your television to the proper antenna input (should be close to where your tv is) and raise the antenna for best reception. Not sure what the cord is called, but it looks similar to the old school cable cords that screw on and they have a really thin piece of metal in the middle of them that fits into an equally thin hole on the receiving end.

Cord is called "coaxial". On some tvs you can get into the menu and it will walk you through how to capture local channels. Make sure you lower the antenna before you move your TT or you'll be watching DVDs for the rest of your trip!!

I don't see anything that looks remotely like an antenna cable. So.......I climbed up on top and it appears that the antenna is stationary and looks similar to a plate sitting on a small stand and is probably 9 - 12 inches in diameter. If that's it, I should be able to get some channels but so far, it looks like it is still trying to find a cable hookup. Suggestions or recommendations?

If it looks like this, I will say good luck getting much of anything!

Make sure that your tv is set to antenna and that the booster button is on for the antenna.

The button is on the right and a little light to the top and left, lights up when it is on.
