RE: HD question

Sure, inquisitive minds would like to know. Not too detailed if you don't mind.

RE: HD question

So cannot Winegard for example, not put the KA LNB under a dome?

HD question

In a gentle way, please explain why on a portable satellite you can receive HD on Dish but not Direct from the same sat dish just by slipping a few switches? Can they not make a portable sat to do this?

RE: Suburban Furnace exterior vent types (with pic)

The new lip will also help deflect the heat(rising) away from the coach.

Search years missing??

When doing a search " one year or older". Seems like 2014 is missing? Anybody else see this problem?

RE: Winegard G2 vs. G2 plus

Op here. Got email back from Wingard. Seems only difference is the g2+ doesn't require the extra voltage cable and dip switch location. Also the "old g2" is not shown on there web page.

RE: End to 101 service from DIRECTV?

Help me understand this about SD. In my stick house, I have 2 HD and 1 SD receiver from Direct. I'm soon to get a portable sat and know that I can only receive SD with a portable from Direct. I had planned on using the Current SD as my portable receiver for the portable dish. Is this thread indicating that my soon to be portable dish be obsolete?

Winegard G2 vs. G2 plus

Other than the one coax cable for G2+vs two cables for the g2 is there any difference? I'm asking about what's under the dome, the dimensions are the same for both units. I'm seeing about $100 difference in price.

RE: Winegard g2 plus

On a G2+ the power and signal cable are one in the same. Sort of why I'm leaning to this unit.

Winegard g2 plus

In the instructions they say you MUST use the provided 25' cable. In the trouble shooting specs to change rg6 cable under certain problems. I'm thinking 25' is too short, so has anyone with a G2+ used a 50' cable?

Air vs Airless valve extenders

Looking for experience on airless extenders. NOT looking for brass tubes. I've run braided for a long time with NO problems till unnamed tire store broke one doing tire rotation. Store is buying the replacement so wondering if going to the airless might be better. Experiences?
tarnold 12/29/15 09:16am General RVing Issues

It IS serviceable. Had the same problem with mine. When I called them, no help as was out of warranted. Asked if I could take it apart, the reply was " it's yours, do what you want with it!". So I took the back off, yes you can with some work. Found 3 of the bolts had come loose holding the relay and were ratteling around in side. Took some locktite and reattached the bolts. Lots of silicon when putting case back together. Still works great. They really need to use locktite in production, this seems to be a common problem.

O ring measure

In measuring for a new Oring, do you measure from the inside, outside or middle? I'm looking at my water filter and need a new ring. The ring is about 4" but 1/8" thick. So that would be about .25 difference between inside and outside. I know smaller would stretch but just wondering.

Winegard G2

Can't find in literature. On the power cable, what do the as shipped ends look like? Is this just a red/white...red/black cord? For those who may have done it, how did you supply the power going into/out of the RV? Once the signal is found, can you disconnect the power cord?

RE: Another sat question

Op again. Hope this post gets in, 3rd time trying to reply? Looked at the Ames, but couldn't see how the adjustment for elevation was done. Guess both of these needs two separate cables, one for power and one for signal. The size of the G2 seems more appropriate for my limited storage.

RE: Another sat question

Thanks Bill. Any one any better than the other. I want this to be a one time, works out of the box quest.

Another sat question

First, Direct TV in the house. I have HD receiver H23-600 and standard receiver D12-100. I want a portable, self directing sat antenna , only one cable if possible. I know that I cannot get high def from Direct on a portable. Can live with that. So using either of my listed receivers, what portable antenna will work? I also don't care about locals when I'm on the road, over the air will work for that. Suggestions please that have been proven.
