2019 Keystone Cougar 30RLS Antenna?

Hello, recently I was on the roof of my 2019 Keystone Cougar 30RLS 5th wheel and found the underside of the attached antenna is cracked! First question is this for the FM radio? More importantly where do I get a new one and how difficult is it to change?

I would not have asked these questions if Keystone would develop a Repair manual for this rig.. Hopefully you find the attached picture helpful!

Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks again

Thatís the TV antenna. There are options to upgrade but youíll have to replace it with another omni directional antenna. A wineguard 360 would be a good choice IMO.

Certain serial number ranges are part of a voluntary recall, I believe:

If you are going to replace it, then I also recommend the Wingard 360+.

After 2 Rayzor antennas and after 2 more fixes each on them (broken shaft inside the tube), I had enough of tree branches catching that thing that stuck up on a single shaft and would twist around until the inside broke.

The Wingard 360+ is round and mounts directly to the roof. Put some Butyl putty under it on the roof, screw it down and good to go.

The Wingard comes with television antenna (omni directional) and WIFI capability if you want that feature and you have all the equipment for that. When I replaced mine, I just hooked up the coax cable for the television and left all the WIFI stuff alone as we have a different system.

On the inside of the camper I left the turn handle on the ceiling in place. Otherwise there would be a hole there. It does nothing now except cover a hole.

Now no threat of anything getting broken or yanked by low hanging tree branches that come out and grab you, and you are not even aware it happened until much later.
