Yes take off the old crank up and replace. I did buy the opional mounting base plate that covers the extra holes left by the wingaurds larger foot print. I recently saw the kit for $103, no base plate.

You don't need to raise "The Jack antenna" up? This link makes it look like it's installed on the existing mount.

It can be installed using crank or with mount and sureLock. With SureLock it adds no cranking and best direction.

BC, what is the standard Winegard offering? Is it the Sensar IV w/Wingman? If so, I can't imagine there would a substantial difference in reception between the Winegard and the Jack. In fact, the Winegard should get the nod in VHF reception.

Just wondering, is the Jack a no cost option?

I hate to ask- could you find a link showing the Jack w/ SureLock and another with the baseplate? We're looking at spending some significant time in our camper this year and would really like to get better OTA reception.

Actually, maybe you can confirm. I currently have an antennae that I have to raise and lower and rotate to point in the direction that is best. It looks like I can take down the whole antennae and replace it with this:

Amazon.com: King Controls OA8200 White Jack Antenna with SureLock: Automotive

And I'll likely need this base (because the old antennae hole spacings are bigger than this new one):
Amazon.com: King Controls MB8000 Mounting Plate: Automotive

I understand that you do not have to raise/lower the antennae any more, but do you still have to rotate it?
On edit: I looked up the installation/operation guide and there is still rotation necessary.

We use the Sensar III. We're just wrapping up some testing and if all goes well we may just make the Jack standard.

The Jack is more expensive so there is a charge for the option.

OK, that brings up another question. I already have a Wingman on my current RV. When I move it to the 3010, are there any obstructions I'll need to worry about (vents etc.)?

Not that I am aware of. The Sensar III has the same size head and there is room for that. The wingman adds a little, but if I recall, mainly in the middle of the head.
