Side by side, my batwing style beats my buddies omni directional in reception.
Agreed! Our batwing was a great replacement for the OEM antenna and works better than most.

If you have this one it is essentially junk. Te only thing it has in common with an RV antenna is it looks like one. You can replace it with a King Jack.

The new antennas FR is using are basically worthless. Only good thing is you don't have to worry about forgetting to crank it down. We have been to campgrounds where we got excellent reception with our last trailer that had the bat wing and can't receive anything with the new. The new digital signal is not as forgiving as the old analog signal. You almost have to be in direct line of sight to broadcast antenna to get good reception from the new round antenna. I have given up on that roof antenna. We either rely on park cable or bring our portable satellite setup.

I have a 2015 335. The omni antenna is really a bad deal. ever FR has dropped them in favor of the Jack antenna and you can retrofit an omni with the Jack as long as you have access below for the knob.

Same here, no reception with the new type antenna, instructions say once antenna head is installed on the pipe it cannot be removed. Has to be destroyed to take it off for access to roof antenna wire. Can anyone who has changed it out comfitm this
