Voltage 3655 Bedroom TV

We own a 2018 3655 Voltage and have an issue with the TV in the bedroom and are wondering if anyone else is experiencing the same issue.
When using the antenna and we try watching one of the lower channels on the bedroom tv it will cause interference on all the TVís to the point they cannot be used including the bedroom TV. If we remove the bedroom tv from the mount and lay it on the bed everything works as it should. Move it back by the mount and things go to crap. We have changed the TV hoping it would fix it but still experience the same issue.
I am thinking it might be because the bedroom tv is mounted close to the Antenna and causing issues.

Thanks
Joel

It may be caused by those ghosts up there on the Picacho Peak.


If that's not it I would seriously think about replacing the F connector on the end of the cable. That's the easy part first.

Thanks I will give it a try.
FYI I updated our location, we are currently in Iowa for summer but should be back at Picacho for the winter.

I have also heard the led lights mess with the tv signal sometimes, might trying to shut off the lights in that area or the whole trailer

I would just about guarantee you it’s the F connector. Just disconnect the cable while the TV is mounted and see if that stops it. They could’ve pinched the cable also somewhere in the wall and it’s grounding out the signal. But I’m thinking that would mess the other TVs up no matter what.

F Connector

I would just about bet that the F Connector on the cable TV cord was not crimped properly from the factory. Things not being installed properly are common. My antenna TV booster was not wired with care and because of the poor DC connection it burned up after just 10 days of use.
