We were watching the Packers game last nite in our pod and noticed that if we turned on the bath lite, the tv lost reception??? Any idea why? By the way, we are in Door County, beautiful!!!

Probably electronic interference with the digital signal. If the signal is in any way marginal, any interference causes loss of the signal. We have seen this in our home TV with one of the kitchen lights interfering with the station my wife likes to watch. Bad weather exacerbates the problem.

Cheap LED lights have a lot of radio noise.

I should have added that the same thing happens in our RP-179. Techntrek has it right.

It's "been an issue" since the 178 floor plan was introduced. Some owners report it. Others either don't have the issue or don't watch TV..  If I remember right, a couple owners worked on removing the bathroom light, and just fiddling with the wire placement a bit, and it fixed it.. others, use a flashlight when in the bathroom.. like camping.  (OK, I may have made that second solution up..)
Signature removed, so as not to trigger any non Ford owners, non Irish Setter owners, current R-Pod owners, unhandy or mod negative Pod owners, or single campers of any gender.
