antenna not getting good reception

Our new Cruiser has one of those new kind of antennas that you don't have to crank up and down. Very convenient, however it does not pull in the local stations as well as the one on our old trailer which had the crank type. We are in exactly the same location in our park in Florida as last year, so it's not a location issue.

Yes, the booster is on. Is there any way to enhance the signal, short of subscribing to digital satellite TV and paying big bucks for a Tailgater?

Astrid.

I have same issue on my new Sunset 26rb. My old type crank up was much better.
Haven't found a solution yet. Tempted to replace it. Must be a cost issue for Thor.

I know nothing about them, but have heard good reviews on the
"Jack" antenna.

My 2011 had the flying saucer which wasn't worth a flip. It seems Crossroads woke up and my new one has the crank-up Winegard which works fine. At the same spot the difference between night and day. I haven't tried the Jack...

No I fully expect you all to stand by the side of the fifth wheel, with arms extended, so if I fall you can catch me
