Broken bat wing

Hello Folks,
This past winter while removing snow and ice from my 2013 Scamp 19, I broke off the bat wing. We never use the system but am wondering if there is some better system that I can put up there? My wife said the Maxwell House coffee can has to go. Looks good to me. Thanks Leoj.

Just switch to a Chock full of Nuts or an Eight O’Clock can!

Or go on Amazon and search for television antennas for RVs.

Bat dude, I was wondering how long it was going to take for you to pipe in!

Well duh! Folgers or Yuban is what you need.
Sorry, you left yourself wide open for this.

Everyone knows you have to use Cafe Bustelo Espresso style, it's stronger.

How about a picture of whats broken? Maybe some one in the east has the parts. I have a complete mount but I'm in Wisconsin.

Bat Wing? Antenna?

Hello,

If the bat wing you are talking about is part of the TV antenna here are some sources for parts.

https://www.amazon.com/winegard-rv-a...+antenna+parts

Hope this helps?
