Amplified TV plug voltage 3200

I am looking to replace the weak Jensen HDTV antenna on my Voltage 3200 and I am unable to locate or tell if this is accepting a amplified signal from the toy hauler. I am unable to locate the signal plate with the red light where the coaxaial would come out of. Does anyone who owns a 3200 know? Most new antennas need to be amplied so I would need to know if the current set up is with it being amplified.
Thank you

Thanks Eightydo

I was afraid some one was going to have me look there. The shelf below the DVD player has an electrical outlet and the coaxial jumper ...but is missing the amplifier with the red light. I don't know what Dutchman was thinking when they built the 2012 Voltage 3200... But the outlet is not where it is supposed to be. I will pull the TV again and see if I missed it behind there. The has to be an amplifier some where in the RV. Or ....maybe not. Thanks for the reply!

The white plate on the left is the amp. The black plate to the right is a jumper for other TV's this jumper must be hooked for other TV's to work off Antenna.

Hey... There are only two where you are specifying. A 110 outlet and a the jumper plate. I just called Dutchman and the rep said the 3200 voltage did come with the amplifier as you show .... However, I could be anywhere depending on how the audio guy wired it. "Most" of the time it is where you show in your picture... But it could be behind the TV or behind the rocker panel - light switch are or any of the TV's. In other words ... The rep did not know. Imagine that. So I will continue in my quest to locate the amplifier plate. Every 3200 has the amplifier plate exactly where you specify ...except mine. I will find it. Thank you for the help!

On another one of my Toy Haulers, I found it in one of the overhead Cabinets in the main bedroom? I don't know where your Antenna is on the 3200, but it can't be to far from the Antenna

Not sure if this helps or not but in my 3200 I have a switch in the master bedroom which gives a amplified signal, it's located where the TV plugs in. I have to turn on when not connected to cable to get any stations.

Do you know what would happen if I pulled out the jumper as far as the other TVs? The reason I ask, we have cable feeding the RV, including internet service to a cable modem off the garage TV outlet. We don't get HD cable in the campground. I'd like to use the antenna to get the local HD signals on the main TV. But I don't want to mess up the cable internet feed to the garage. I know if I turn the antenna booster on, it back feeds the cable signal, and the internet goes out.

We have a V 3105, which is pretty similar to the 3200.

Thanks.

On my unit the jumper is only for other TV's in the unit. From the plate the cable goes to a splitter that has a cable to each TV.

TV amplifier found

I wanted to thank all those who replied. The amplifier was located on my Voltage 3200 in the master suite behind the TV up under the top of the cabinet. It was hidden from sight. Thanks!
