Good morning,

Long time no post and I hope everyone is doing well! After being out of the camping world for a long time I just purchased my 2nd Heartland camper. Its a Torque T26 Toy hauler travel trailer. Boy I'm loving it and I'm having great time getting back into one of my favorite things to do in life. The Torque has the low profile brown triangle shaped antenna that does not extend up. The adjustment mechanism that's located in the bedroom broke. The camper is new and I really don't feel like taking it to the dealer when I can just fix it myself. Any input on who I can contact to get the replacement parts? I did not buy it from the local dealer that would do any warranty work.

Thanks,
Steve

The antenna is a King. Try them directly at King Connect.

Be careful about mixing antenna and signal amp. I found out the hard way and ruined my signal amp. to the tune of a few bucks. And there is a risk of fire at the amp.

The signal amp and antenna are two separate things on my 5er. The antenna on my rig was replaced after damage and it was not made by the same manufacturer as the signal amp. I discovered that my owners manual warmed about mixing the manufacturers on the antenna system. I am not sure about the King antenna.
