Ok, I get many more channels but still choppy on a few. I use digital converter boxes and wonder if that restricts optimal signal.

It does but the old owner caked on the lap sealant so I might have to remove some to get it to turn. Hope he didn't caulk it cause of leaks .

Should I upgrade to HD antenna?

Should I replace o ring just in case ? Seems weird that it would all be caulked , might of had a leak at one time .

Back to the should I leave it on. The answer depends. It will draw power, so if you are boondocking then only on when you use it. Also off when you store the RV unless you have a battery disconnect switch.

This antenna maintenance video may help, too.

There are lots of videos on YouTube showing how to operate the Winegard system.

Do they leak ?? Should I remove the caulk and just use it ? If it does leak would it affect the frame or leak internally into the tt through the antenna ?
