I was having trouble with my rooftop dish so I purchased a tailgater while I was on an 8 week trip that ended last month. I used it for about 2 weeks and returned it. I liked the ease of set up, remember to lock it up for security! It has a rather small, in relation to other setups, dish so maybe reception can be more of a problem. It just didn't like to work in heavy clouds, rain, and didn't like trees much either.
Some will love it while others like me found it didn't work as I had hoped. I returned to my rooftop, it works a bit better. I think if you are hard core a stationary unit might be best.
This is a followup to the subject of: POSSIBLE TAILGATER PROBLEM.
MY new tailgater works great. setup is a breeze and picture quality is outstanding
I have a VIP211k with dish RV programming hooked to a winegard 1518 auto dish carryout. The carryout died this last time out so I ordered a Tailgater directly from King Controls.
What kind of problems will I have. If any.
