Winegard Rayzar Z1 Replacement Antenna

Has anyone installed the Winegard RayzarZ1? We have a 2016 Ace 29.3 and don't like raising and lowering the antenna because they put it in a very poor location... if you installed one was it a plug and play or did it it require modifications? Finally, was it worth the $138 or so?

Thanks in advance.

Bob, I have read good results with reception, I also believe some had to make the hole bigger for the drop pipe. Measure your opening, and check out the mounting specs to see if it's an easy fit or not. I know some had to modify some for the new unit. Hope this helps you some.

Bob, I have the 2017 29.3, it has the King Jack with the control knob above the dinning room table. On the roof it sets right across for the AC unit. If I do not get better reception I plan on intall the the Wineguard just for the height. Where is yours located

I have the King Jack on my Windsport, works great no matter which way it is pointed. Matter of fact turning the antenna hasn't seemed to make much difference so now I just leave it pointed straight ahead.

Mine is located above the dinning room table seat..the reat seat. I have to remove the cushion and climb on the platform to raise, lower and turn the antenna. Did your's come with the King Jack or did you replace the Winegard?
