I want to replace the Omni Directional saucer type antenna that came with the 30WR with the Jack antenna. The Jack anteanna is not just simply bolted to the roof but a hole is drilled though to the inside so it can be turned from inside the RV. I would put the Jack antenna in the same spot as the Saucer antenna...
If anybody has any experience with this I would like to hear it.
I installed one on my 2000 Cardinal. After I repped of the other 2 antenna's I realized I had a leak, after further investigation, I realized all of my wood on the roof was rotten, so I bought the mounting plate for the Jack antenna, the mounting plate was big enough to cower the rotted wood. I did not have to drill the hole since the wood was rotten but it looked real simple, I sealed it with the lap sealant and it was a done deal. And the reception was much better than my Winegard's that were on it. I hope this helps!!
