I still don't see $25,000. I think you were charged too much shipping. lol.

I bought something simple ... 20' of awning rail, so I can hang lights from the side of the coach.

I like it. I need to buy 20' more.

Well they named it wrong. It's not a Jack antenna, it's a Jack S--- antenna. Doesn't work worth a darn.

I have to see if I can return it tomorrow in exchange for a new Winegard Sensar

I must have been on Santa's nice list...

Got a portable ice maker and a Winegard Wingman for the Sensar "Batwing."

Happy New Year to all.

Hmmmm?

I'm happy with mine. Are you sure it's connected completely? (assuming you know that you should be able to get channels where you are)

There is a difference between the Sensar and Jack...
I did not change antenna, instead picking the upgrade to the Sensar with the Wingman for 4 reasons:
~Antenna height - that extra few feet above the roof does matter.
~Personally, I know a directional antenna is better than an Omni design...it's just the physics of RF broadcasts.
~Another iRV2 member's side by side test data (posted here): Jack digital antenna
and here:
Woodalls Open Roads Forum: Batwing vs.BatMan vs. Jack: The Results.. finally (LONG)
~And, Winegards R&D: SENSAR RV VHF/UHF Television Antenna - #1 Antenna in the RV Industry!

If was replacing the head...I would ask for the Sensar 4 with the Wingman already attached

That's just my take on things...your results may vary

Now - back to the Topic: I also got a brand new Rand-McNally North America Road Atlas (the kind with the spiral spring back). We always carry maps as a back-up for the GPS...better safe than trying to buy a map on the road.

Safe travels to all

I just bought a Progressive Dynamics PD4060 converter to replace the Schumacher converter on our Navion iQ. The Schumacher has just single stage battery charging, a ridiculous thing to put on a $100k+ machine and the PD has four stage battery charging.

Yes, we were close to San Diego. I got two network locals, my brother got them all. Just for kicks we took the Sensar head off his trailer and clipped it to my mast. I then got 30+ channels. That was without even the Wingman accessory.

And I did read every review I could find before I bought the Jack ---

Later today I hope to post I just got a new Winegard Sensar antenna for my RV!


Happy New Year everyone!

New crank mechanisms for both vents in the bedroom/bathroom area. Still need to get some stabilizing jacks to put under the slideouts to help support them.

That's not a good idea. If you should ever have a flat, the downward pressure of the slides on the jacks can damage your slides. Do a search. It's been discussed many times.
