No Power to Antenna When Using Inverter

When testing the inverter on our 2017 Flying Cloud 25FB, we tried the TV in the salon and could not get any channels (had plenty of channels on shore power). Apparently, the antenna did not power up. Does the antenna booster not work with the inverter? Any recommendations?

The antenna booster works on 12 volt. Was the green light on?

I'd point out that the inverter (as wired by Airstream) is *ALWAYS* available, even when the store/use relay is in the Store position. So you might have gone to the trailer to test, fired up the inverter, the TVs worked but the amp wasn't getting any battery power. When you plug into shore power, the converter provides 12v to the trailer regardless of the store/use setting, I think.
