Our wineguard doesn't have the built in booster. I added a stand alone and a wingman years ago. A couple years ago, at a place I know we had signal before, we got nothing. Replaced the booster and all was fine again.
Same problem, no channels where I used to get @8 It's my backyard so I know what I should get.
Can anyone recommend an aftermarket antenna booster that will last, or might pick up more channels ?
TIA

Winegard Sensar Pro. Adjustable amp, scan peak signal meter. Made a big difference.

Though I've heard of boosters failing.. Rare.. You do now that the TV needs to be Re-scaned right. many stations just changed the frequency upon which they transmit.

Have you considered teh winegard Sensar PRO (NOTE before you try it check for continunity between the center wire and nut on the coax to the roof. If exist. do not use sensar pro) Or better yet put in a sensar pro and a new Sensar IV head

I’d simply replace all of it with the latest Winegard Sensar and Sensar Pro control box. Can’t believe they still install non boosted antennas in RV’s. Even way back in 2009...
