sounds to me that you were on the fringe edge of receiving any tv channels where you were with the antenna you have.
what tv antenna do you have you have not said anything about pointing the antenna if it is a Omnidirectional antenna most are known not to be very good.

Shastagary, good thoughts. However, I believe something else (undetermined) happened. I was in Denver. I did the channel scan. Found numerous channels I was watching 1 channel while eating breakfast. The image on the screen froze. From that point on, the channel scan pick up 0 channels. Until I got home. The only change I did was disconnect, then reconnect power to the trailer using the battery isolation switch. Weird!!!
Thanks!

Side story. I screwed up my reservation at the campground I'm in now
Where I'm parked I get ONE channel well out of Canada most of the time (a month ago it went off the air for 2 days)

Well due to screwing up my reservation I had to spend one night at a Truck Stop (Brand new Loves) with RV parking .. It is literally across the road. perhaps 200 yards from where I am parked.. Got the full "Detroit" collection 2,4,7,20,50,56,62,and 38 as well as TWO Canadian stations

Amazing


Home is where I park it.

I had an amplifier on my home antenna that would have a heat stroke in hot weather. Pouring ice water over it would restore function for awhile. Think about temperatures and sun when you had the failures.

You never reported the make and model of the antenna, you may have the newer cheap junk that they started using.
