Do you have a part number for this antenna?

If were talking about this one,

It can be seen at:

Jack Aerial Mount HDTV Antenna 12 1/2in.L x 16in.W x 12 1/4in.H, Model# OA8200 | TV DVD| Northern Tool + Equipment Goods + Toys-_-Electronics-_-27672

Two cousins have had them installed (04 Sunrise coach and a 04 coachman coach) with a slight increase in reception. But have good sleep not worrying about raising or lowering it. A series of lights inside the coach tell the strongest signal. Fits right where the standard crank goes. Just have to drill an slightly larger hole. Now hears the rub. The third cousin had a metal roof (Travel Trailer) and after three days of installing not one, not two, yes three of them it was determined the metal roof causes a ground. Who would of thought.

Perfect! Thanks. That's going to be my next mod. I've been having troubles picking up some stations. They'll work for a while but the signal is weak and they cut in and out.

There is an app called TV Towers that helps me to turn my antenna, at least in the general direction, of the strongest stations. It works on my iPhone.

Fixed mast, no crank up...but it does swivel to maximize the signal. Built in meter tells you the signal strength before you ever scan for channels. Seems to work as well if not better then the Wineguard (at least our testing, mileage may vary) without the hassles.
Thanks for the info. I am thinking of installing a jack digital antenna on my sunseeker 3170ds I believe it is a fiberglass roof. It sounds like I will have to make the original hole larger. What will be the best method to enlarge the hole. Thanks for all your great information you provide to the site.

When you say batwing, which antenna system are you talking about. The old Wineguard Sensor IV or the King Digital?

Just to remind everyone...instead of going through all the trouble installing a new antenna...All new Sunseekers come with the Jack Digital Antenna - Standard.

No work...just more paperwork to sign

digital

I just bought the 337 BAR and am having problems getting channels thru the fixed antenna. Not a fan of the new antenna. Does anyone have ideas of troubleshooting to get more channels? I am picking up more digital channels on the bedroom tv, but when I run channel search on living room tv, very little digital and/or analog channels. The cable feeds appear not bad in quality also.
