Hello to all!

Hi,

I just picked up a Salem Cruise Lite 273QBXL and like it a lot!

Just one thing I can not figure out, the TV antenna on top does not have the knobs below to turn it, it is always standing straight up, but looks like a directional antenna. Anyone else have this?

Thank you all,
Ken

Welcome.

Yep, a bunch of us have them. It's a bat wing, but it's stationary. You can't aim it. A lot of people have changed them out to the old models or gone to power actuated units. Some have also gone to external pole mounted units in order to get better reception.

Newbe Questions

Thank you, Bama!

So its called a bat wing, I just could not find anything on the Web that looked like it. But now I have a name to search on.

Thank you all for this forum, a lot of help. I picked it up last Saturday and asked them to put 1/2 tank of water in it and had to use it all up last Saturday night. It did sway a little with no water, so now I know it does a lot better with water in the tank.

We have the same trailer! We love it. Can you take a photo of what you are describing? Out antenna does raise and lower. It also turns 360 degrees. I'm not at the house right now or I would snap a photo. If I get by there in a bit I'll upload a picture.

Happy camping and I hope you love your new trailer!

TV antenna

Here is the picture of my TV antenna. It does not have anything inside to rotate it.

Thank you for all your help.

Congrats & welcome! I just changed our antenna out for a King antenna w power meter. You can rotate it from inside for the best reception. Got if for $92 on Amazon. It's much better than stock and doesn't have to be raised/lowered for travel purposes.
