   Go to the winegard website and see if you can find the installation manual in their downloads. This will give you a chance to see what is involved in installing the antenna. You can also check the warranty terms to see what, if anything, will void the warranty.   
   I installed one on a 102A3 about 1 year ago. Not difficult at all. Remove cover, attach antenna to roof, set switches for front/rear orientation and Direct TV/Dish. Replace cover. Run wires into the coach and connect to receiver and 12 volt.  We did not use a 120 to 12 converter. (Maybe we should have, we did not read the warranty).  One thing you need to check is other obstructions on the roof (Ac's, vents, etc.) there is a chart in the manual that shows the distance the antenna has to have for clearance. The taller the obstruction, the further the antenna has to be from it.   Jack
