I have a new camper. It came with a 26" flat-screen TV. With the antenna up, I can only receive PBS stations. My old camper with a flat-screen would pick up 12 - 15 stations at the same location.
The four PBS stations come in great, but why have I lost all other stations?
ANSWER: Hi Mark You are not alone in your problem with getting good Digital TV Reception in your RV. There are a lot of other RVers who are having the same Digital TV reception problems in their new and older RVs.
Important Update: Since I answered this question Winegard has released a brand new antenna called the Winegard Rayzar Air antenna. This multi-direcional antenna was designed from the ground up by Winegard to maximize signal reception of digital TV channels, and expands the coverage area to provide maximum channel reception with less aiming or pointing. Watch the video below to learn more:
If you currently have a Sensar Antenna on your RV you can buy a Rayzar AIR Retrofit HD TV Antenna that you install on your existing system. If you have a different antenna or no antenna at all than you will have to buy the Full Rayzar AIR HD TV Antenna system. The Complete kit includes the amplified antenna with the boom and lift assembly, the 12-volt power supply and interior control parts, 20’ and 6’ lengths of coax cable and the mounting hardware.
If you have a standard Winegard Sensar crank up antenna on your RV; Winegard has come out with an attachment (pictured at left) for their crank-up Sensar Antennas that increases db reception gain by up to 100% on DTV channels which will give you more reception range.
The attachment is called the Winegard Wingman. The Wingman Optimizes the antenna's Sensar for DTV Channels, it is compatible with all Winegard crank-up Sensar antennas and it attaches to existing Sensar head with 4 simple snap-on screws. Watch the video below from Winegard on how easy it is to install the Wingman on your existing Winegard Crank Up antenna.
If you want to get even better reception I would recommend installing the highly rated PCT 1-PORT BI-DIRECTIONAL TV SIGNAL BOOSTER. This TV signal booster improves both off the air Digital and Cable TV signal strength by up to 32 times (15 dB). Since it is bi-directional it also supports Pay-Per-View and Video on Demand (VOD) Services. If you want to install this TV booster, you can read the answer I gave to this question How Can We Improve The Digital TV Reception In Our RV? for the easy installation instructions.
