Description


High gain over-the-air antenna with integrated SureLock signal meter provides simplified antenna positioning and superior reception of digital HDTV channels.
Sleek, aerodynamic design is 70% smaller and requires less roof space than traditional RV antennas. Superior reception of UHF signals where over 80% of new DTV channels are broadcast, also offers great reception of remaining VHF channels. Fixed height requires no cranking up or down. No need to remember to stow antenna before driving away. Includes aerial mount assembly, integrated SureLock signal meter and wall mount power supply switch.

  • Integrated signal meter to pinpoint broadcast towers prior to scanning for channels
  • Built-in amplifier enhances weak signals in fringe areas for improved reception
  • Effortless rotation – easily rotate with two fingers
  • Easy to install – works with varying roof thickness from 1.25" to 6".
  • No exposed coaxial cables or connections
  • Full 360 degree rotation – no dead spots due to rotational limit found with other antennas

    I installed the Jack on my 2012 Redwood 5er and it not only looks great, but works very well. The wife and I especially like the built in night lite (led) as it really lites up the bedroom/bathrrom landing. Installation was simple and took less than an hour. I have not traveled with it since the install, but will be great not having to remember to take down the antenna before travel.

    The only problem was because I wanted to install the antenna in the same place that the old bat-wing antenna was located. Enlarging the the hole in the roof and ceiling caused lot of saw dust . So a vacuum cleaner is a must. Also, the Power Unit included with the Antenna does not need to be installed if the RV already has an antenna power unit. The Company will answer any questions you have. The antenna is very easy to operate and reception is improved greatly, I will never willing go back to a bat-wing type antenna.

    I made an assumption that the base of this antenna was the same or would cover the foot print of the old antenna. I was wrong. Fortunately, I had the material available to make a base plate. That plus cutting the hole in the new base plate so it would line up with the hole already in the roof was a challenge. Connecting the TV cable that came through to the antenna was no problem. I had to use the Adjustable Connector because of the thickness of my roof. I found the instructions here a little vague. I pushed it in a little too far and then found out you are not supposed to pull it back out. because the plastic parts may break. With a lot of effort, I pulled it out one click, which was enough. I was lucky and nothing broke. When I turn the antenna, there seems to be a little binding in places. I think the rubber casing around the antenna cable rubs against the adjustable connector. Watch for that. I hope this helps somebody.

    My old batwing was lucky to pick up 5 channels here in the cities. I installed this puppy today and I'm getting .. 35 channels! Unbelievable. I know many are duplicates but still I am amazed. Beats the crud out of the antenna on the house! One drawback.. My RV is a 1989 class C Winnebago Warrior. Well the roof is one inch thick and this antenna is made for roofs at least 1 1/4 thick. I'm sure all newer RV's have at least that thickness. Anyway, I worked around it and I'm a happy camper.

    As anyone knows who uses a satellite dish on the RV you can get local channels only in your home area, The locals give you the networks and that can be important during a veriety of seasons in sports as well as other shows. This antenna lets you aim at the direction of the signal and maximizes your chances of getting the locals in towns along your way.

    No problem with this antenna, problem with the installation curved roof had to make a curved spacer. With that out of the way the install was all right, nothing comes easy but at the end the reception is good.

    Recommended by a coworker. Best purchase to upgrade the RV. Great picture quality, easy fine tuning. Depending on where one is camping, get more channels than the cable hookup. Installed by Camping World. Definitely recommend this antenna.

    I was reluctant to punch a hole in the roof but once that was accomplished and all hooked up and turned on, I was surprised to get as many HD channels as I did (20) and I live approx. 125 miles from Sacramento where most of the antennas are.

    I was amazed at the excellent reception and number of channels I received after the install.The install itself was fairly easy. I didn't have to make alterations to my rv, and all of the required connecters were already in place. I highly recommend this antenna. It's low profile makes it very streamlined and nice for traveling.

    I purchased the Jack antenna for my 85 Tioga. Installed it following the easy directions and now can watch over the air TV with no problems. Best upgrade for a vintage Class C. I have a digital TV and the reception is great. I scan when I change locations and I am amazed by how great and how many stations I can receive. I highly recommend if you do not have a satellite dish.

    Smaller than expected - Better than expected!

    This was one of my best purchases from Camping World so far. I've bought a lot of 'upgrades' for my fifth wheel, but this one was REALLY an upgrade. Based on reviews, I bought this and installed in place of my stock 'wind-up/wind-down' antenna. The following were my observations: PROS: - The antenna takes up less space on the roof than my old one - stands slightly lower than my A/C unit that it is mounted next to... no increase in RV height. - No more cranking up and down!! Even in high wind, this antenna stands firm, well-built base that mounts solid to the roof. - I used to get 4 channels on my old antenna, 2 good, 1 ok and 1 visible but not audible. Now I get 26 channels over the air!! Of the 26 channels, 5 are in HD (1080i). If I go somewhere without cable hook-up, I'll surely get at least a few channels! - ascetically pleasing internal mount kit... nice lighting, good quality and easy to operate. CONS: - NONE! NOTES: - This is a bit of an install job. I had to cut my roof hole about 3/4 wider than my previous antenna to accommodate the larger rotation shaft. Don't be afraid, it wasn't hard but you should know that some cutting may be needed - get a jigsaw. - I recommend getting a brand-new tube of roof sealant for the job... you want to create a good thick barrier and you may need to fill holes from the old antenna base that are outside of the mounting area of this new antenna. -- I recommend the Advanced RV EPDM Roof Sealant on Camping World (Item # 52114) - You will need a 12v power source near one of your cable jacks... this antenna requires power to work... again, not hard but be aware that some electrical wiring may be required. RECOMMENDATION: Definitely get it!

    My husband installed this antenna one weekend while at a campground close to our home. Before he installed it we could view about 6 stations. After the installation we could watch over 20 stations some as far as 80 miles away. This is a great produce and would recommend it to any one.

    After about 30 camping days of use this year . I have concluded that this antenna is better than the legendary winegard sensar with wingman, at least in fringe reception areas. Heres why, 1.the sensar is first a VHF antenna. 2 the wingman is a set of director elements which funnel the UHF 8vsb signals to a VHF driven element( the bat wing) which is more directional but does not provide the gain a you would expect .. Bottom line.... It costs slightly more than the Wingman addition to the sensar but works better for me

    At home I was able to download 55 chanels, didn't find my favorite public tv station :( the reception on my tv was great at home. I took it camping in Flagstaff but had no signal I believe this was due to having to download stations to the tv.. don't know what happened at home I had stations before I left, none on my trip and when I got home none there either, after re scanning for stations at home all was good. I did not install this myself but my good neighbor who did said he had to call the maker for instructions. I'm very happy with this product but there are a few too many buttons/knobs (3)to be in the right position to have it work right... So for final review it worked great at home(I'm rural so that means a lot) but I haven't tested it up in the woods yet

    I have been on one trip since having this antenna installed by Camping World. Southern Oklahoma , WinStar.. Picked up all Local chanels as well as the Dallas area. I Like the way you know the direction the antenna is pointed and signal strength.. Another RV friend has bought one and had Camper World install it too.. The tech at Oklahoma City Camper World did a great job on installation. I recomend them..

    I have a 1998 Bounder and have always had terrible TV reception. I had a Winegard Antenna which I believe was original equipment and I could only pick up 4 or 5 stations while in the driveway of my homeport of Greenwood, Indiana. While in campgrounds around the country, my neighboring campers were recieving several stations and I was getting nothing. I installed the JACK HDTV antenna on March 15, 2012, following all instructions as directed. Very easy, very simple. Anxiously I turned on my TV's and performed a channel search, and to my surprise, I started recieving 32 stations all coming in clear and sharp. The JACK antenna looks very nice, nothing to crank up or down, nice signal meter, easy to operate and this is one happy camper. Now I can't wait to get underway. USN Retired

    This antenna is a must for all the new digital stations. I live 70 miles west of Chicago and with the old antenna I was lucky to pick any channels on my TV. The distance is extreme so I was just hoping to get a few channels, but to my surprise, after installing the Jack Antenna, I was able to get over 50 channels. This blew me away. This antenna is a must if you want to use over the air TV and not cable or satellite. Easy to install and good instructions make even better........

    This antenna worked great on the channels it did get, but not as many as the sensor antenna I was goung to replace. I even called king controls and was told the range was 70+ miles, but it did not pick up all the stations about 50 miles away.

    This antenna is just what I was looking for. No cranking up and down; and, inevitably forgetting to lower it when leaving camp. No worry with this, and... it finds the strongest signal and just turn the handle around to set the antenna in the best direction. How easy is that... and it did seem to get better reception and find more channels. So far... I love it!!

    The antenna bolted in in the same area of roof where the original anolog antenna mounted which had to be raised when used and lowered before travel...bad system. I was amazed at how easy it was to switch over and install the new digital antenna system but when I turned on the diodes which helps line up the antenna to the most perfect signal the digital pictures came flooding into our televisions on board more clear then ever seen. I would recommend this upgrade as the best method to receive free digital television signals

    I purchased this antenna because the old crank up just didn't work half the time. I have not been on the road with the new antenna, but sitting outside of Camping world half way between New Orleans and Baton Rouge, I got 16 stations on the jack antenna and they were plain and as good as direct tv. I have a new flat screen so did not need a convereter box for the front ty, the bedroom with a converter box had a good picture also. To beat it all I went home and parked in my RV Garage, this garage has metal sides that are sixteen ft. tall and about 4 ft from the ground. I parked in the garage and say what the heck, I tried the tv's and I got Gulfport stations about 25 miles away and New Orleans stations about 50 miles away.This antenna is better than sliced bread, as the old saying goes..
