Default TV antenna

Our 2404 LT does not have a TV antenna. Looking for suggestions on installing one. Also, what not to do. Ron

Hi Ron,

I took one off recently, are you looking for one itself?

Iím just up in Ruston so Iím sure we could work something out. I canít recall if I saved the interior handle that would Ďwindí it up and down though. The large antenna part itself is in the yard waiting for a job.

I took the thing off to eliminate the hole in the roof when I re-roofed my Classic a few months ago. Have you considered an exterior, temporary antenna? You could put it out as needed. It could be an easier way to go if the holes and such were never in place on your HiLo in the first place. Thereís likely a Co-ax hookup on the outside of the trailer somewhere, you could potentially wire it into that.

Just thinking out loud here.

Yes, that is the way I am thinking now. Don't really want to put a hole in my roof. Have not looked for cable hook-up on outside but saw it on the inside. Thanks for the offer.

Usually on the street side. Looks like a covered outlet, has a phone jack with a cable jack.

You bet, just keep me in the loop if you want it. Consider it a freebie if needed.

cva34, now that's an old carrier! Just a note, I downloaded a couple apps to my phone that really helps in this matter. One is called "DTV ANTENNAS" shows all the antenna towers and how far away they are. It actually points them out. Aim your antenna to them and your in. Free app!
Next one is called "SMART TOOL BOX" It has like 40 different things--compass, level,dog whistle on and on. I use this a lot. Also free.
A third one is called "MY ELEVATION" self explanatory. Again free.

Been almost a year and I still thinking now and then...Latest is mount antenna on expandable pole( 2 or 3 section)..with plate that bolts on instead of spare tire on rear..Throw spare in bed of truck..May be able to lower below top of camper for travel..or just remove for travel and throw in bed of truck with spare ...In my head best idea yet..about ready to do unless some one talks me out of it...

I am partial to an older post . . . an idea were a solar panel was hooked up to the antenna to move it to the optimal position from inside hand crank. I also jive the idea of a deck or a periscope. How about putting a solar shower or water jugs on roof before lifting! Let gravity do the work! They all laugh at first!
