Nice looking installation, and thanks for posting the photos. Were there any limitations as to how far away from skylights, A/C units etc the Jack antenna should be installed?

There was not anything in the installation instructions regarding location. I used the same location as my original antenna.

I would like to know how well the new antenna works? Christmas is coming and the inlaws are asking what I want...Do I want a new Jack or not?

We recently installed Jack and are very happy with reception. Not to mention the fact that it requires zero cranking up and down! Go for it!

Okay.. reviving an old thread here in hope of getting some help!

I have a 74 sovereign with an old skyliner that was long gone when I got the trailer. The "two wire" from the roof to the jack/outlet is there... can it be used for the Jack Anetenna or no?

I've tried pulling... and I didn't see anything budge on either end...

Help someone please!

Thanks

I had the same thought with my 1977 Argosy MH and the answer is NO. I tried several different baluns and also called the company. I never got it to work. I was able to run coax while installing the Fan Tastic fan and fixing the AC installation.

I recently installed the Jack HDTV with base model on my 74 sovereign. Works great! ! Couple things:

1) had to run new coax down fridge vent
2) mounted with butyl base, rivets, and then vulkem.

Pulled 12 channels from my "fringe" location, about half were hd broadcasts and looked fantastic on my 27" LED!!

Does anyone know if these are suppose to be turned forward when moving? Not sure if it matters. ....

Looking at the posted photos I would think it is most aerodynamic if facing forward.
