TV Antenna

Where is it? I've downloaded two pictures of the 2015 Classic roof - one with factory solar and one without. Don't see any sign of a TV antenna on either. Know it has to have one and the "window sticker" lists a TV antenna. So am I overlooking something or what?

It's a new type, it will be towards the back, on the street side, it's painted white, and it's stationary, at least mine is, you don't have to extend or retract it.

They are round, white, and look like a flying saucer. Not to be confused with the new plumbing vent covers, which are also round, white, and look like a flying saucer...

This is the only pic I could find that has a view. Look between the rear AC and skylight you can see it on mine, I have another on the front for the XM radio. Their location may vary since roof top real-estate is a premium.Click image for larger version

The "flying saucer" is omnidirectional. If you should elect to install a higher quality antenna on your new Classic, I can highly recommend the King "Jack" antenna. It does not crank up, it is amplified, and it is directional. The interior control also gives you an idea of signal strength as you rotate the antenna. It will mount directly over the hole of the factory antenna (which I understand is just "OK"). The only work you will need to do is remove the old antenna, drill a hole all the way into your trailer, connect the wiring, and seal your new antenna with butyl and Sikaflex. The "wall box" that comes with it is a 1:1 replacement for the stock A/S box behind your TV. Took me about 2 hours to install it. (And, yes, real estate is at a premium....you can spot the "Jack" antenna right in front of my rear A/C and behind a Maxim skylight.)

Many thanks. After knowing exactly where to look I now see it. It blends in perfectly with the a/c cover on both of the pictures I have. Knew there had to be one somewhere.

Beautiful. Really like the personal touches and it's nice to see how the red teapot looks. I have the same one!

Thanks BAB, i was wondering what i could upgrade to. As for as the teapot goes, I found one in Whithehorse YT this summer all 318 SS. I will send a picture later, my unit is spending another month on the Gulf Coast, an hour and a half drive from me.

Nelson,
Have you joined WBCCI?
The Mississippi Unit is having an End of Winter Blues Rally at Rivertown Campground in Vicksburg March 18-22. Maybe I can see your fine rig there.

Yes, should be two classics there, mine and my parents. Are we responsible for making our own reservations ?

Yes. Call the campground to get your spot. Tell them you are with the Mississippi Unit. There will be a rally fee, but the amount hasn't been decided yet. Of course, the more people, the lower the rally fee.
