Please use lowercase. Uppercase is considered shouting.

You need to provide a lot more information than you did. Like when did this start, what changed that might have led to ths, what TV do you have, do you have any other issues, what happens when you plug something else (another TV?) in the same outlet, .... ???

If your trailer came installed with cheap led lights, they are your problem. Did your trailer come with a saucer type of antenna? That you be your other problem.

I have a 2013 Vibe which is the cousin to your trailer. The Jensen TV is better heard when you use the radio in auxiliary mode to put the TV sound in the ceiling speakers.. At least that is what we do. We have the factory installed wall mounted TV.

TV reception can be affected by a variety of items being off or on when the signal is weak to start with. I just took delivery of the Wingman accessory for my Winegard bat wing antenna but haven't tried it yet. I get the trailer out of storage tomorrow but I'm in suburban St. Louis and won't get out to weak signal territory until Oct. to try it.

LED lights will cause this. The "cheap" lights may work better than the voltage-regulated expensive lights.

If your tv is 12v, I would check the voltage without any loads on. Then turn the lights and measure again. Then turn on the tv and measure again. It could be the battery is not holding up under load.
If the battery and converter are good, then the tv may be the problem.
Something is dragging your voltage down to the point where the lights don't work.

I don't know about LED lights and their alleged effect on his TV or how expensive my LED lights are but, my RV only has LED lighting and the TV works perfectly.

I have exactly the same problem. The good part is that it only occurs when the signal is weak. Also, only some of the overhead LED lights cause the TV picture to freeze. We use a small incandescent lamp when watching TV. A minor issue.

It is only a problem when using the antenna tuned to a distant station.

X2 But, I do have a 110 volt TV and a power inverter. Not a 12 volt TV as someone mentioned.
