I have now received the Jack With sureloc and ordered the baseplate to cover extra holes. Any tips on install? I'm not sure about wall switch since my 3050s has the selector box.

For us, it brings in a few more channels than the Wingman did, which I had on our previous TT. That may vary depending on the geography and the distance to TV towers.

Got the JACK on my 2013 Sunseeker.

I have travelled to places I used to travel in my previous Sunseeker with the Wineguard (which I added the Wingman, also). I noticed:

Sometimes I got channels I didn't use to get on the Wineguard
I didn't get channels I used to get on the Wineguard.

I'm still not sure I'm sold on the JACK.

On our 5er I took the batwing of and installed the Jacks and immediately got over 30 more channels and never turned the antenna or anything. The Jacks is a lot better.

Yes one of best improvements. I not only got more channels but not having to raise to or lower is a big plus. Besides adding the maxair this is the secong best improvement

Our Winegard is standard. We do offer the Jack antenna with signal meter as an unwritten option. We were going to make it standard, but some people still like the crank up.

Got the Jack Antenna model where you remove the Winegard Head and replace it with the jack head. You crank it up and turn it. Worked great and was cheaper.

Since there is no signal gain by cranking it up its just one more to break. My crank spring and all fell off the first time. Second it's another place for leaves to collect. The jack with signal is super.

DrJMB, is this a simple backfit?
