    TV Antenna choices

    So, the stock antenna that comes on my 230, I assume there is better?
    Can you tell me what you have upgraded to?

    Thanks

    We are still using the King antenna which came stock on our 2018. It does the job for local channels.

    I upgraded to a Winegard Sensor IV (RV-395). IMO simply the best as it can be raised and extend above any roof obstructions and rotated 360 degrees to point at the TV tower(2) of your choice.

    There are post on this forum about it. If I had better internet speed I'd find one for you.

    We are very happy with our Winegard AIR 360+. It is Omni directional and has an option for cellular data/internet.

    Dennis, I just looked and I have a Winegard 360 on mine.....it doesn't have a "+" on the antenna housing anywhere.....so, can I do better than the one I have? I get several channels, but, not knowing what I COULD get, means, I don't know what I'm missing.
    Thanks Sir

    I have the Winegard Air 360 (non + model) and compared to my last 5th wheel which had the directional "Bat Wing" that you could rotate to dial in your signal strength, the Wingard is not as good. It picks up a fair amount of channels, but channels I used to get 4 or 5 bars on with the bat wing, I am only getting 2 bars with the Air 360 model. I suspect the same reception would be found with the air 360+ model as well. The "+" indicates it is Wi-Fi and 4G LTE compatible whereas the Air 360 is not.
