I have a 2014 3050s with the winegard sensar antenna. I was wondering if the antenna is powered or not. Every other camper I have owned had a "booster" button for the antenna. Have not found this on the unit. I just bought a King Jack retrofit antenna and plan to install it in the spring. This antenna needs power through the coax that's why I am asking. Thanks.
I have a 3050s sunseeker and I've been told it's hardwired for power. There is no push button anywhere. If you look at the switch box (controls tv ant/aux/etc...) there is definitely a electrical wire going into the back. So I have to assume that is how it's getting power when you push the antenna option. I'm also thinking about buying the jack antenna to replace the existing antenna. Yes it says it needs power. There is a red light on the bottom of the antenna, so when I get it and install it I will be able to see if it's getting power.
Yes I installed the replacement head last weekend. My 3050s does not have a button to push. I confirmed the connection in back of the box is providing the signal boost. While plugged in the light is red. Pulled out the connection and the light goes out.
The new antenna did make a difference. I still have to rotate but I am finding a few more stations. One position of the antenna won't find all the channels.
