Hello Ron- It was when the glass windowed door on the cabinet where the booster is located was closed. TV swap is a great idea - will do that when we get home - thank you!

Thank you for sharing that information, Mike. Interesting enough it's Samsung versus Insigna. The Insigna TV is getting less channels - you may very well be on to something here... We're on the road now - but will check the wiring when we get home to try to sort it out.

PC, Maybe one of your stressed coax connections inside your booster box fractured and the weak signal is jumping across it.  A trouble-shooting tip would be to have both TVs on.  Have someone in back watching both TVs at the same time while another person gently bangs on the booster with their fist.  Be sure not to turn it off by accident by pressing the red button.  If the signal is erratic during the light pounding, you problem is there.

Good Morning, Ron. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. When following your suggestion no change occurred in the rear TV when banging. However, there seemed to be a signal response when the door was closed. I will investigate further. Thank you!

Thank you for your response, Mike. The booster is on. The onnections are tight. The previous TV was analogue so it was never used.

Happy July 4th all! We have a 2007 Phoenix Cruiser. We replaced the original TV in the bedroom with a 110V digital TV. The signal strength to the front TV is 75% - the signal strength to the bedroom TV is 25%. When using broadcast signals, the bedroom TV always receives less channels. My understanding is that they both run off the same cable... Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

There appears to be two parts of the wiring system. Part of it lies on top of a raised area that is covered with carpet. There's significant play in this wire - in the picture below it is draped over the raised area and near the floor - I wouldn't want to catch the wiring on the side of a table. I wonder if the play in the wire might be present to accommodate for the re-positioning of the slide when it's extended...? Then I'm assuming there are more wires that go into the black tubing that goes down on the floor and back towards the outside... I think the wood would slide under the tubing (one of the pictures above shows the tubing elevated off the floor, at least in the front area of the sofa - I do think it contacts the floor further back. The pieces of wood in this picture delineate the area I could slide the wood across the floor under the sofa - the wiring lies approximately in the middle of this area. So... I guess the best position for tables would be to align the outside edge of the bottom of the table to the outer limits of the "free" area and there would seem to be room to do that without disturbing the wire. So I guess the next question is how does that position bodies on the sofa in relationship to the tables...

Sorry - meant to check that also... it's just under 19 3/4 inches. As an FYI took the face board off and found a power supply for the sofa  located in the middle and heading off to the right side encased in tubing - most likely best not to disturb  :lol Took a couple photos will try to figure out how to post later tonight.

The 1/2 is IMHO a no-go. While I could start get a 1/2 board under - it displaced the face board of the sofa upward and was very difficult to move. It had to be forced under. After the first 4 inches or so it became even more difficult to move... Sorry - what we were hoping for also!

Yes, 1/4 of an inch will fit with some room for play. Also tried 3/4 inch - which does not fit. I wondered if 1/2 might fit - but didn't have that with me to try. I slid a 14 inch long piece of wood underneath the length of the sofa. The stopping point at each end is just to the inside the buttons that cover the screws that hold on the upholstered board that runs next to the floor. Our PC also has carpet on the floor that extends under the sofa to the wall. Hope this helps!
