I was looking at the Jack Antenna and made by King Controls. I like it because you still can rotate and has a build in direction finder. I think they call it a batwing.

King Controls OA8201
Jack Digital HDTV Antenna

I found it for $116 and free shipping

Given that most things should serve more than one purpose do you think it would make a good spoiler and hold the TT to the road.....

If I install 4 on all corners I will fly down the road and be 20,000 lbs lighter and get 42 mpg. Yah right.

Odd. I believe I have this too since I too have a 2014 Georgetown. Only got 3 channels at home and none of the normal local station. Very weird. And yes, booster is on too etc.

I just replaced my crank up antenna with the Jack antenna. I get the same channels but I don't have to worry about cranking up and down anymore. Other than that there's not much reason to change.

have a question regarding these satellite antennas. I have two on my roof, a winegard and a kingdome, in order to receive channels do I need a receiver too? thinking about buying a 211K receiver from Dish but wondering if channels can be had without this receiver.
Guys and Gals: I have spent hours reading these forums and have learnt so much, will be a big help when we travel to Florida for the winter...Thank You All.

I'm a little confused. Do you have two satellite dishes or one satellite dish and one "over the air" antenna? You DO need a receiver to use the Kingdome to get satellite channels. Before you buy a box you should ensure that the satellite is set up for Dish network and if not, you can change the software or dip switches to get that service.

When I picked my 27rls Salem I got 0 channels fitst time. Took back to dealer they found out a screw on cable tie down had gone through cable on roof. They replaced cable and got 22 stations that day. Check all cables on roof and ant. Good luck

I'm sure the 211k receiver will work with your KingDome, but keep in mind that it has only one tuner in it (one channel at a time), whereas some of the KingDome dishes support more than one (eg, for two TVs). Which KingDome model do you have?
