Hello AV Peeps!
My '84 345 Motorhome was missing its original TV antenna.
This is what was left...
Note that the coax and original 12v
supply cord emerges from a hole rearward of the antenna base...
After a lot of effort I got the original mounting and its sub plate off the roof and the spindle that goes down thru the roof out..
I had bought a Wingard Sensor IV a couple of years back.
When I came to mount it I realized I have some issues...
The antenna is much longer than the original and when lowered it comes down on the front Fantastic Fan..
Note the original antenna's standoff bracket...
Another MH owner had the same problem, and cured it by making an extension to the original stand off bracket to keep the head off and above the vent...
I was thinking that might be best, but had another thought..
By offsetting the base a few degrees to the curbside I could do it like this..
Lucky that the new base covers the original mounting and screw holes in either position!
The original coax is to the rear side of the antenna base, and the Wingard places the coax to the front..
Can anyone suggest a solution?
