Default TV reception

we bought a few months ago a 2006 Gulf stream Btouring 5291. Previous owner said everything good and like dummies we believed them. Been working on this MH ever since we bought it. New tires, new shocks, front and rear stablizers, steering damper, AC board went out and had to replace. Went camping and never could get a TV station to come in. Husband has been working on it forever and then bought a new TV and new antenna. Still nothing. Finally went into roof area where cable are running and found a mess with cable wires. Center pin in cables gone. Re-did cables and finally everything working now. Next project microwave combo oven turntable not turning even when it said table rotating. Then we would like a new backup camera system. The one in MH now not very good. Black and white monitor. This is worse than owning my home.

So sorry someone sold you their problem. Sounds like they never did any maint. I hope you get to take some great trips after you get everything settled.

I have a 1992 Gulfstream Conquest purchased 8 years ago. It was owned by a mechanic, stored inside and is in great shape. My local dealer recommended a Winegard antenna for it but after installing it, I still seldom got a station when I traveled. When I dropped cable at home, I bought LAVA HD8008 antenna at www.antennadeals.com for my home. It worked great and pulled in every station within 75 miles. This spring, I bought the same antenna and made an adapter for my RV. It works great and pulls in every local station as I travel. It has a plug in booster that I think makes all the difference in reception and I would recommend it if you want to try another option. Best wishes, Jerry
