Antenna replacement '87 sovereign

How much trouble to replace and what to replace the old antenna with. Some of the places we camp have no cable hook up and if the weather is yucky it's nice to have tv 'cause I can only beat my hubby in so many scrabble games!

Antenna

I am replacing mine also. Because....It's a satellite installation..I have found that most of the camping sites I have used, the satellite path for reception is usually blocked by trees. And your correct; ya can only play so many games, etc., before the hair-pulling contest begins. Looking at what a person can receive without satellite is enough to keep us busy.

Very easy install. Wineguard at Camping World. Same hole as the old one. The only real work is cleaning up the old caulking and sawing the arm to attach the handle for adjusting direction and raising and lowering the antenna. Works great, must better then the original.
By the way hoobiedoobie the camping season is NOW in Florida! Alumaflamingo next week!!
