New Shamrock 233s 2013

Hi guys i just bought my first Shamrock 233s 2013 and got it today and I did not explore everything yet. Ive found this forum tonight and i had a question about the antenna on the roof for the tv. Do you know if it's an old antenna or a new one that are able to catch hd program ?

I did not check a lot yet. I can't wait to go camping with it will be better than my coleman utha 2002

Thanks all for your help

No such thing as a HD antenna.
My 2007 23SS has a crank up batwing antenna and I get HD shows.
It's the tv that makes it HD, not the antenna.
You can use rabbit ear antennas to get HD tv.

Your 2013 probably has the batwing antenna.
Look for a crank in the ceiling.

Get a tv antenna app and grab the dial above the crank and rotate it to rotate the batwing.
I'm sure there are videos on the Internet to watch.

You will need to do the channel scan to find the channels in the area you are camping. You will .also need to rotate the antenna to get the strongest signal

The booster green light should be on for over the air channels and off when connected to cable TV. I rescan for channels after switching from cable or antenna to the other.
