I received similar information from Casita
on my 2019 SD17. When I checked out the antenna, I was disappointed. Don't expect much from the antenna. It is what I would consider a very cheap antenna. I even told Casita
that I felt they failed their quality build and name with this product.
In my attempt to research the antenna, I received the following message from my sales representative at Casita.
The only information I can find for the antenna is part number AN350. Unknown manufacturer. We purchase it through Kingston Distribution, LLC. I’ve found the same part number on other websites but cannot find a manufacturer. As you know, we no longer purchase it through ASA Electronics.
Using Google search, I was able to find a 2-page PDF file online that covered the installation of the antenna. The manufacturer is no longer in business. I pretty much received a run-around when calling trying to get specifications on the antenna from Kingston. Google AN350.
The PDF is strictly installation instructions with one very simple graphic of a SUV with the antenna mounted horizontally on the driver side rear window.
If you are not within about 5 to 10 miles of direct line-of-sight position with the TV station transmitter antenna, you will most likely have little or no reception from this antenna. If I had known about the antenna and its installation prior to purchase, I would not have selected this option. I consider it useless extra weight on the trailer and a waste of money.
It is possible that if you always camp in large camping facilities with the hookups, you may not have a problem. I don't know if these camping sites have TV repeater antennas or not.
