300 Watt Bathroom Vent Cover

I like to leave my bathroom vent open with the fan going to pull out the hot air when the trailer is parked at home. I used to keep it only partially open incase of a rain shower. Now I have a large 300 watt cover over the vent and it can stay almost wide open. I replaced the long TV antenna in the front of the trailer with this smaller one so I can fit another 300 watt panel in the front right side where the old antenna was. The tall antenna is a Weboost Drive Reach trucker antenna for the cellular booster.

The new antenna picked up 61 channels vs 30 for the old one. Many of the 61 are just different translators of the same programming but my old antenna wouldn't even pick up all the available locals.

I've read mix reviews for the tv antenna style, some say it works great and other say not so great. We're still using the Winegard batwing which works ok for our needs. Most of the boondock location are away from civilization so the stations being pulled in are PBS.
Our video library is over 300 movies/ tv series converted from dvd to a backup drive and adding more along the way, which help for an evening when no tv stations can be had.

We use one of the older Wilson sleek boosters for phone/ data which works great (6-7 years now) all over the states from coast to coast. I've watched a couple youtube videos for the Weboost, I do like the trucker antenna and might upgrade that portion of our setup.

Having a cover from the panel over the vent probably make a big difference and takes some of the worries away from water intrusion.

Nice upgrades.

Jeff, what model TV antenna did you install?

Here's the amazon link. It came with a power inserter faceplate. My trailer already had one in for the old one at is is still working fine. I kept the new one for a spare.
