Yes, approx. 9" to the right or passenger side.

Since I already have the Wingman and the Sensar Pro signal strength meter, I couldn't justify the cost for the Jack. I can see the attraction for others though, as long as they stay away from low tree branches.

Yes it still needs to rotate. The surelock system has LEDs that shows signal strength. So no guessing on what's the best direction and reloading channels. Many people have doubled or more the channels they can receive.
BC I understand allowing the option but an additional charge seems petty since consumers can but it for $103.

Not sure why its petty, it costs is more than the Sensar III that we install as a standard item so we charge accordingly.

When you're buying the Sensar at 85 a week (way more when you consider all divisions) we buy them at a pretty good price. When we're only doing 1-2 Jacks, we pay what everyone else pays.

What we're trying to do is have the Jack installed as a standard item. Based on volume we might be able to get it at the same price. Still working on that.

So I'm a lil confused on this. This Jack should replace the existing crank up antenna right? What is everyone doing for the 110v power? running it across the ceiling? Or does it not have to have power?

Hmmm...must have been the booster option that has the 110v. So this antenna does not need to be powered or will my current antenna have power up there already? (12v that I would tap in to)

No, the booster is 12v. If you're referring to the video, he incorrectly states 110v.

The Winegard has a booster as well that's all you need to tap into. Should be plug and play, but I'm guessing you can download the Jack installation instructions beforehand.

Your current antennae should have all the power you need. The 110Vac is for home use.
