The Wingman pops on your OEM antenna (and providing you have room on the housing side of the boom) with 4 plastic pop rivets the go in the rubber foot holes. (Half the price of the Jack's head replacement since you are not replacing the amplifier).

If you don't have the room on the roof, the Jacks replacement is your only option.

Clarifying here....does the new Jack simply mount onto your existing crank-up mast? I was reading some reviews about people having to remove the old assembly entirely, drill new holes into their roof and mount the new one. Don't really want to go to that extreme of changing roof equipment. If I can unbolt the Wingman and put this onto my existing mast I'd consider doing this.

Any more details on installing it?

It mounts on the existing mast.
All you do is pull 2 pins, unplug the cable and replace the batwing with the "jack", put the 2 pins back in and hook up the cable. As posted before, it takes longer to get it out of the packaging than to do the install. VERY simple.

No drilling!

Toad Haul, You simply crank up the old antenna to the vertical position, Disconnect the coax, remove the two circle clips from the pins holding the old antenna. Remove the two pins (simply pull out by hand). Set the new antenna on existing two vertical mast, insert the two pins, install the two circle clips, add grease supplied in package to coax fitting, connect coax using 7/16" wrench. All the instructions are in the box! Now get yo butt off the RV roof and watch TV with new antenna.

PS: Glue the two black caps to the two aluminum tubes or they will come off in transit!

Make sure you buy the Winegard "upgrade" Jack. There is a complete unit with mast that rotates, as well as a version that does not rotate.
