Winegard TV Amplifier Replacement

Replaced the Braund TV Antenna on my RV with the Winegard Sensar IV Antenna. Assuming for compatibility and performance the installed Braund Amplifier should also be replaced with a Winegard Amplifier. Looks like the Winegard RV-7042 or RFL-342 would work. Seeking recommendations/suggestions which Winegard Amplifier to go with; the Winegard RV-7042 or RFL-342. The RFL-342 is double the price but wondering if it's worth it?

Neither of those are 'amplifiers'.....

The amplifier is IN the head of the Winegard TV Antenna

Both of those are 'power supplies' (DC to antenna amplifier) and coax cable connection

The RFL-342.....is the better if the two as it also provides 'signal strength' to get you a better means of maximaizing the signal received.

Is it time for YOUR medication or MINE

I have the RFL-342, and have been pleased with it. I like the ability to adjust the gain to get the best signal.
