    Morning. First off...I want to fit a draught skirt to MY MH. What fixtures should I purchase.
    2nd. Our TV keeps saying "no signal". Previous owner said it worked ok. What can I do. Thank you from Angela.

    TV probably just needs re-tuning through the menu.
    If you are on a normal arial then you will need to retune each time you move to a different area around the UK.
    Dont know anything about draught skirts but someone will come up with an answer soon.

    Another point, if you have a directional aerial you will need to point it at the strongest signal, a signal finder will help with this. Then on the telly, you will have some form of menu, find the auto tune option, and let it go. It should find the channels for that area.

    Re the TV, check the amplifier is turned on, if you have one it will probably be hidden in a cupboard somewhere

    Firstly you need to subscribe....£10 for a whole years worth of advice and banter.

    If you dont subscribe you become a read only member with few, if any, priviledges....including using the search facility for old posts.

    As pappajohn says you need to subscribe but you would be mad not too now you see how good it is.

    If you want to save the thread for future reference you can click "watch" at the top where you posted and then go to "watched threads" under the forum tab at the top in blue and you can go straight back to it.

    Thanks for asking I have learned something as well.

    We are new to motorhomes and after the first couple of months we could not get a signal on the TV in our MH. We thought it was the area that we were in but then when we were at other sites we still had no signal but others did. By plugging the ariel straight into the TV and not through the amplifier we got a bit of a signal which pointed to the amplifier being faulty. We got a new one from Amazon for £20 and all works well now. I also bought a signal direction finder from Maplins which has been a help.
