The push button (green) is for over-the-air antenna use; it boosts the signal strength. Push it off (no light) for cable reception. If you are trying to view the TV via a cable hook-up and get no signal or a snowy picture, check to be sure this switch is off.

I have a rocker switch in my coach that lights up green when depressed upward and it activates on my winegard automatic satellite antenna.

If it says WINEGARD on it for sure it's an antenna switch of one kind or another for that is what they make

3 (now that I think of it) options
1: The Over the air antenna.... There are a few different OTA antenna power feeds.. ONE uses a "Stand alone" switch. exactly as you described. This feeds a device called a "power inserter" in the coax line from the antenna

2: as I said. Automatic Sat antenna

3: Winegard now makes Rooftop Wi-Fi systems. theyre are a few diffent ones
one is Wi-Fi to Wi-Fi (Re-routes park) and one (Actually there are at least two of one model) can re-route park wi-fi or be a 4GLTE hotspot like my pone

Guesses are presented in preference order by the way.. That last system is fairly new and I do not think it would be standard on any new rig yet.

The others.. Well the OTA antenna is very common.


Home is where I park it.
