How do other members find the signal reception when parked as required on site that is, unable to manouver . In my opinion situated as it is screened by the roof edges, on ours anyway,(( may 11) Has any readers tried A/S re changing to the better push up variety, as fitted on our I.H Savannah, + many others.

Hi Neuvosleeper, which aerial is fitted to your Nuevo, you mention a Dome?

Ours is fitted with a Status 530 and despite being the short pole version it easily clears the roof side....

I personally would have preferred a Teleco Teleplus x2 as fitted to some Nuevo models, but I understand Autosleeper returned to using the Status aerials for some reason shrugg

Hi C.C. The reason I stated 2011 in my topic was the very point you ask, its a fixed "mushroom shape" and in my opinion unsuitable for purpose on the Neuvo roof with it's verticle flanges. However C.C. seems no other members are interested, thanks for your input. P.S perhaps you can help-- I typed a reply into " Winterisation" 10 mins ago , and about to SEND, it disappeared.?? have you seen it, is the page timed ? wave Brian.

Post by burlingtonboaby on Sat Jan 14, 2012 9:04 pm

Hi Brian
I have a Status 530/10 fitted to my Nuevo ek es, this has replaced the useless Omni Directonal thing that A/S fitted.
The shaft comes down in front of the clothes rail in the wardrobe in the down position and extents up about 30 ins above the roof, gives a good picture so far, however we have a spare Avtex we can put on a pole if required.

Thanks Boaby!, thats all very well But how much naff idias are we going to put up with when spending lots of money on something widely advertised as "the d.bs" hoped perhaps several 2011 Neuvo owners may reply then we have a go at the designers, I mean A/S. Why take up valuable space carrying "in case its needed stuff" or back up bits. We no longer travel in V-dubs with its limits. I often wish I did, seemed more "fun" did'nt expect perfection water carriers, buckets, lifting roofs and bunk beds were the wonders of ---Dormobiles. Now well forgotten. Brian Whistle1

Digital signals this past couple of years need a better signal so if you after good TV whilst out in the motorhome in all places your going to need to think about a sat system, either a manual one or self seeking but the self seeking are not cheap approx £1400.

Maxview are decent in manual heres an example [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

As for 2011/12 owners, I would assume any owner could specify what ever they want TV from AS at when buying. The Cotswold comes with the maxview system. I like news when I'm away apart from that I dont watch Tv though the boss likes the odd ctach up on the soaps :)

Hi All,
I have a status 530 fitted with the pole in the wardrobe, this at present has a short pole. but according to Grade UKs website a longer pole is available at a cost of £25, which would raise the aerial by about 3 feet, can any one tell me if these produce any improvement in reception.

Hi Brian
We have replaced the Omni-directional aerial with a Status 530/10, we needed the extra height to clear the fins on the roof of the van, I dare say it should improve the reception, the higher the mast? No doubt there will be an aerial expert on the forum.

Autosleepers Neuvo II 2011 Aerial Position Empty Dome airel 2012.

Post by Neuvosleeper on Mon Jan 16, 2012 8:53 pm

Thanks Boaby, I realise as you have said re fitting the alternative airel is a way round the "height" necessary to clear the sides. My point is that I am dealing with a "new' vehicle (2011) with iffy kit on board from new. to replace my unit with a "pole" version means removal of the original and alterations to the roof apateure, I can do this as could most of us but it will invalidate the comprehensive warranty issued by A/s in fact as I read it that would invalidate the whole body build, All this unnecessary concern should not be the case A/s vehicles are supplied through dealerships and supplied as is from a stock, any later alterations are at a considerable cost and covered by the said warranty. Summing up ---We are printing money for the whole set up. As I said in a previous reply under "winterisation" back to A V-Dub, those were the "fun" days.

I use the original mushroom to signal to a dongle fitted to the usb port on a laptop computer - great signal, even in the depths of Scottish woodland!

Can you not simply ring AS if your worried about the warranty, after all they will do any work or any warranty work required irrespective of where u buy a vehicle. I would ask them about the options but if you want TV reception anywhere in the Uk at a Guess you will need a Sat system something like a maxview which AS fit and supply to some models. Auto seek are expensive
It is annoying finding out that your not happy with the TV system but no matter what marque of MH you would have bought, unless it had the next step up the ladder from the status you would not of been happy think_smiley_46. The problem is that unless the supplier knows exactly what the customer wants from any aspect of their MH its hit and miss what we get as a spec.

Hi Brian
I hear what your saying about A/S fitting the Dome aerials as standard, If your purchasing or part exchanging a van from dealership stock, then your only choice as we did was to agree an aerial upgrade at the time, We had a cruise control fitted at the same time.
We love the Nuevo for the extra room and comfort for longer trips away.
We also us a 3G dongle like Mr dandy, via the i pad, if we up in the highlands visiting the wifes folks.

Don't think it's a 3G dongle Boaby - it's purely a tv dongle with a cd software package to install on the laptop.

It isn't internet, just TV - got it in Aldi for around £14 - works a treat, made by ARC I think

Hi Murph

Might be wrong but I cant really see how an extra 3ft is likely to make that much difference, as you are already much lower than your average roof height even with the extended pole. The Status 530 is not the best aerial around from what I can see although some mysteriously rave about the performance of theirs on various forums. I haven't used ours a great deal, but it appears to be a bit hit and miss even when using a signal meter to align it. The figures for the 530 state an 18db gain with the amp whereas the Teleco Telepus x2 states a 38db gain and seems to be a far better aerial

more info here [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]


Would be nice if Grade bought out a better performing aerial to compete with the Teleco which is a straight swap for the 530, GradeUK / Status created an account on the forum a while back so perhaps if they read this they could comment if they have anything in the pipeline?

I should add that the aerial upgrade to a Status 530/10, included a new Vision plus Digital amplifier VP1 and new coax wiring to and from amp to aerial. We need the height on the longer tube to clear the roof fins, so the aerial is clear above them and surrounding vans.
