The Winegard Wingman ($30.00) is a good addition to the Sensor antenna of it did not come with. About doubled signal strength when installing at home. Goes on without tools in less than one minute. Got the gray one without new rubber feet but old ones went into additional holes easily. This webpage opens with a good view: Winegard Sensar RV TV Antenna

Well, now we are getting down to it...
It would appear everything is fine, you just don't have reception where you are. We are at our seasonal site at Geneva-On-The-Lake, Ohio and we only get 1 channel over the air.
I purchased a stationary satellite dish and a ViP 211z receiver for DishNetwork and have the "pay as you go" plan. It works perfect!

These signals do not travel as far and are more susceptible to being blocked by objects. Simple things like rain or wet leaves can make a signal that worked yesterday not work today. Combine that with the low quality TV antennas FR uses on some units and you are doomed to frustration. Alternatives: Get a DVD movie and watch it or upgrade to a Jack antenna. Better yet sit outside and enjoy nature.
We followed in Canada 5 years later and lost TV in most areas we camp. We do have analogue in Northern Ontario and maybe 3 channels in Southern Ontario. We gave up on OTA and use satellite now. We have a Jack, the wineguard with the extra Haddon was useless. The less metal on the roof the less chance of cutting the membrane. The jack is smaller and less weight.

I'm so glad I found this post. We didn't know anything about a booster until I read this, so the other day we went looking for it. We found it tucked way back in the tv cabinet. We pushed the bottom, scanned the channels on the tv and instead of 1 channel, we get 22, which is all the over the air stations available in our area. Everyone talked about a light coming on when the booster is on but ours doesn't have one.
