    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't work at all. I tried this product when it first arrived in my RV, parked in my back yard. The antenna picked up all the local stations easily. I hooked it up, turned it on, and no matter what I did, I couldn't get any of the blue lights to come on. Just the red On light. Since I can see the transmission towers on top of the mountain from my yard, it would indicate you'd need to be next to a tower to get a reading, any reading. Either they aren't worth anything or I got a defective unit with no sensitivity. I took it back to Camping World and got a refund. No idea how it got so many positive reviews if you can't get a reading on a strong signal, much less a weak one, which is what you need.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Practically perfect in every way We got this because we often travel to campgrounds without cable TV in areas with which we are not familiar. Finding the best alignment for our antenna was hit-or-miss at best. This has been wonderful. One especially valuable feature is the sensitivity setting. When trying to focus in on a direction, often the display will show strong signal over a fairly wide swath. By reducing the sensitivity a bit, so that the display shows a distinct readout only at the strongest point, you can really zero in on the signal. One other thing - the information listed on CW did not mention that the kit included both Velcro for mounting and a short connection cable, so you don't need anything else.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This thing is GREAT!!!!!!!!!!!! Before I got the KING Surelock Digital TV Signal Finder, I would spend up to a half hour or longer trying to find out which direction the TV signals were coming from . . . now I spend about 10 seconds! Even up in the mountains where TV stations are hard to get! I suggest that you buy a good 9-volt battery as the one supplied is not very good and only lasted one try before it ran out of juice. If you don't have one of these . . . get one before your next outing!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Gaget We recently bought a used camping trailer which has a rooftop TV antenna. After countless attempts at finding a useable signal, my husband was about to purchase an expensive satellite dish. After seeing this signal finder in our local Camping World store, I convinced my husband to try it. Once installed, it worked just as described. Within minutes we had a crystal clear picture and more channels than we expected. We recommend this product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great time saver Does what it should. You can quickly find where over the air channels are broadcasting from and narrow down the best angle for your antenna to be at. Then just have your TV scan in all the channels available and your set to watch TV.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surelock Digital TV Singal Finder I have used this device twice since I bought it. Wow did not know many channels I can get with our camper antenna till installing this device. I will be using when we go camping over the Summer.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Save Your Money We purchased this to hopefully improve our TV signal, on our brand new 2015 TT. It did nothing for us. I had planned on returning it. Now I can't find where I put it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quick channel finding I hooked it up, but couldn't get good readings. Then I discovered the antenna connection was mis-labeled. On the right antenna it worked like a charm.

    Does this work with Directv SWM?

    Asked by: eoclacok
    No, this signal finder is only used for UHF/VHF over the air TV signal.

    pixels

    I was wondering if this would help cut down on the tv pixels. This is the problem I am having hoping someone can point me in the right direction for help. When we go camping and if we have the generator on and you run the tv the picture on the tv will break down in to pixels squares or the picture will freeze but the volume still plays. Do I need a filter or something on the tv coax?
    Asked by: Nickers
    If the odd symptoms occur only when your generator is running, there is going to be two high possibilities for cause. 1)The generator is creating radio/electromagnetic inference. Using heavily shielded COAX cables will likely assist in fixing this. 2)There might be something electrical between your generator and distribution panel that is causing the problem. As an example <a href=http://community.fmca.com/topic/3698-grounding-the-generator-rv/>here</a> is a post on the FMCA forums about bad grounding of the generator.

    Will this work with multiple tv's at the same time?

    Asked by: terry
    The intention of this product to assist in positioning your over the air antenna before running a channel scan on the TV. Since this signal finder is installed upstream from the TV, yes this technically works for multiple TVs since it is installed between the antenna and TV.

    Does the tv need to be plugged into the signal finder or can I just hook it up to the outlet to find the best signal strength?

    Asked by: Cubs camper
    The TV does not need to be connected to the 'Signal Finder' to operate, just the antenna is necessary. The ability to connect a TV to this signal finder is a convenience feature so you can leave the unit inline without having to disconnect the COAX every time you need to orientate the antenna.

    work with King Flex Vu cube

    We bought our King Flex Vu Cube last year and are having great difficulty locating any signals at all. We have not been able to use our King Flex Vu Cube at all this year :-(
    Asked by: MomL
    No, this product is used for Over The Air TV antennas not for satellite antennas. <a href=https://www.campingworld.com/satellite-finder>Item# 14067</a> is for satellite antennas and can also use a reference system like <a href=http://www.dishpointer.com></a>DishPointer</a> to help find signal.

    Can this unit be left inline or does it have to be removed after locating the TV signal?

    Asked by: JohnD in Colorado
    When the signal finder battery discharges or the signal finder is turned off, the TV signal does not get to my TV. As soon as I replaced the 9 volt battery, the unit seemed to work (e.g. I got a TV show).
