RE: DISH Winegard Trav’ler Satellite Questions?

Winegard Trav’ler = Very expensive junk ( mine lasted 2 years before it died/ would not stow ) Winegards only response was send it back. Can you imagine crawling up top and taking that monstrosity apart and packing it up. Then you pay big $$ to ship it to them and maybe get it back repaired and not knowing if it is until you put it back together . NO WAY !!!!!!

RE: Winegard X1 Pathway Satellite

As stated before most of my time will be spent in the SE and the Western part of the US. Unlike most folks I’m having to give up my OTA antenna to make room for the X1 so I’m hoping it performs well. That said I know it will not perform well in rain and around trees. I try to avoid trees as I have 285 watts of solar that has to be fed. Now rain that’s another story.

RE: Winegard X1 Pathway Satellite

We have a pathway X1 and it has worked for us from Maine down to Florida. Very interesting that it has worked well for you in the NE corner of the US where it’s not supposed to work very well. Thanks for sharing.

RE: Winegard X1 Pathway Satellite

Have had the X1 on the roof of our 5er for 2+ years. Used from southern AZ to norther OR with no problems. Housted Good info. I hope mine will perform as well as yours.

RE: Winegard X1 Pathway Satellite

I totally get it that I will be at a disadvantage with a stationary antenna vs portable. That said , assuming a clear line of sight, will the X1 perform on par with others that have both eastern/ western arcs except in the upper NE? We have had several stationary antennas before and usually have no problem finding a spot that works. I just hope the X1 is a good performer compared to others we’ve owned.?

Winegard X1 Pathway Satellite

Looking for anyone with real world experience with this particular antenna. I just purchased this model and was wondering how often there were issues due to the West only feeds. I will be traveling primarily in the South and the Western part of the US. That said I would still be interested to know how far North anyone has been able to use the X1. Before anyone asks I bought this particular antenna instead of say the X2 (which accesses east and west) due to a limited footprint and even less storage on my B van. In other words I had absolutely no other choice. Thanks .

RE: Dish network question

Really good info Solo, I appreciate your input. This is a perfect example of how we can simplify things for each other.

RE: Dish network question

Thanks all for your responses. From your posts it appears this will be a viable option. I will be going from cable to dish in our home as well so I’ll be using one of the receivers in the RV. Sure dread getting familiar with their DVR, programming their remote where it’ll operate their equipment as well as mine. Part of it I guess.

Dish network question

Here’s the plan. I have a b van with a very limited footprint on my roof. I’m looking to remove the over the air antenna to make room for the Winegard Pathway x1. Now for the question . How much of a hassle would it be on rare occasionsi to call or go on line daily to change service locations for network programming. Also is Dish ok with this or do they get bent out of shape with frequent changes? Thanks,

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

After reviewing all the responses and looking at my options I called my local gas company and we collectively came up with a workable solution. Long story short we decided the simplest thing to do was tee off the line prior to the main regulator. It works great and cost me a grand total of $76.47. Needless to say as they say I’m a happy camper. Thanks all for your input.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

After all this good info it appears I’m stuck with the Weber go anywhere grill or similar due to space limitations. There isn’t space for even the smallest Q, oh well. Guess I’ll be using 1# bottles. Thanks all for your responses.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

I just ordered a connection kit from this place. I've got a Weber Q100, and this kit screws onto where the regulator on the grill comes off. I got the Weber specifically because it could be converted to hook up to the low pressure outlet on the side of the RV. I've gotten tired of using the 1# bottles, and having them run out of fuel halfway through grilling a chop or steak. Could not have said it any better as I too hate messing with the 1# bottles and running out of gas part way through grilling a rib eye. Thank you very much for the link, that is EXACTLY the info I was looking for. You rock.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Is there a brand of portable gas grill that will work with the built in gas tank on an RV? This tank has its own regulator which renders my grill worthless as it has its own dedicated regulator . Long story short I’m regulating my grill twice which just will not work. Any suggestions would be appreciated . I took the regulator off of my Weber Q2000 and replaced it with a male quick connect. Works great off of my trailer LPG outlet. Bobbo the image didn’t work would you try again. Thanks Got the images, thanks. How do you regulate your cooking temperature? https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8I79WTYjSGCs8fS-xNOCALSBTg5fUXb1_apZqgjNLcODY2uZdEn9nMqFCMm2nEOr44wv8IFqqWQ3sfa_99IxMlVy1yJHpBT7GPHtBjq6OFlRXeqvNadW0-rg5SPg9PkHBSqwHoObxlah5KJEeYW99kusanoPP73nwctGgOLu1EboIlC4uuTYSQ3gDENBwjlz6Q1Qw1edD_eBvbTwXvhcJiUJq19_7XYubNu3fTlCetVru7geNj7g4fYY63u1wzZsLhodvvp7rRT2vcVkcTGl050ux3qyu_r_RkA2VzoeinclO6pFBvmISxxbr79TcYK1jtsJyoD-bMn56KEO5AE03akEYmDdaZ265bxHAx9XIys80dDMe3vtwpB7F88mNMlsfyd78RdU96UAk0DAURYYY03A8C5eQevmxum8qoltngrgPu7NPdcMOSNUZdHN6kC0ylfaSeiyF433BF4VtKV_vKvJy_rTAoSauU6egPg07OO838VBbwkptmTnNvtKQbnsDL5k4VBtEGMdGn0QtS4afvGYDj2DzmcXBYzPlwX4VO3JwM73hVXMCY5BGhmejHcKeESPBPLjwYiKzut_VsB2da851pGdyaS6_a_KV981Cw=w850-h637-no width=320 I use a hose with quick connects on each end for that, and have a hose with a regulator on it so I can still hook up to a propane tank. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/b0OgOXEabXT_Uoz8byAFnE2DFYkp1ErqcInyC8qC6nCUPgvYWS4B8RWpvQv6irWXUMIAgflXEDZ4fk3cLNnQ21ykw0DNjOOomzsGWIW_lFpaqhYxs6O9JNgQDNg5TFx9zCoGKLjIYs3Z023-VrYWuGLTwqgCJJimMK6vI8rOBe5A_VM3NLu_DRlDDN3-Hy2WZVUC6nCXwtdmZF8ibIqsmZVS8rUPDnCwdadkoyevv3CNwn0dmQ6FSgJFrX1RkvHSrg_eAjfDKbQdMbr0vMTvTLNCyRO3G3BAb93t_vm0Vimd9XzKMpxIJR1Ip_dG3e-fWPOPci9JqQ6Ixzd-Ku2gkylyKdI_OEQEEJOLd8DGZTVhaReNXR__3a-sn9Up8lUY6xxtTteWpW0gZkzwvREfmtwhBXiRodCs3GqhR0qlOCRg3AHltXhxOLHcK03pREeTFUUj6tIh0wu8T6vs8ofJ4nFCkpu2Cy3rTg3z4qZhpSywbSgeHgkbnYe0mUcpxxdGiHd35QjudrvjyjG7mELBdUwYUQqi8bulBQQO_O3IzAd6dmgUs12XsXVjd6tKeRTSOC2Boxiz8lXB-NhKTFjufc5Ex00TQQgF12QkNGV9Qw=w850-h637-no width=320 And, yes, the quick connects are propane rated.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Did not realize you were in Raleigh. If you are able to disconnect the hose with the regulator you can try F&G Distributing in Garner. They are knowledgeable in all things propane and have a lot of ready made hoses. I do lots of business with Francis at F&G . That said they sell not install. Besides at this point I don’t need parts . First I need to figure out a work around that would allow me to bypass the onboard regulator using only the regulator that attaches to the grill via the 20’ hose which attaches to the quick connect on the RV. Thanks anyway.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Since most folks just turn the grill up high and start cooking, you can remove the grill regulator and make a new connection that will allow you to use the low pressure side of your on-board LP tank. If you want to use the grill as built there are adapters that will allow you to put a connection between the tank and the regulator and you can run a high pressure line from there to where the grill is located. Your suggestion would work if and only if the built in regulator is accessible and I could find someone willing to lie underneath a b van to make the modification . One had to wonder why the mfg’s would put a non workable gas quick connect on the RV. Duh .

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

Little more info. I have one of the Weber Go Anywhere grills that I reallyyyy like a lot as it cooks great and is small. However the gas connects to the grill via the regulator. Translation I must use the regulator that came with the grill to connect the gas to the grill. Sigh I think I’m destined to use the 1lb bottles if I am to use my beloved grill. I ran it straight off a 20 lb bottle on my last RV no problem but that was then and this is now. Thanks for everyone’s input.

RE: portable grill ( Soution found)

We use a Weber Q with a 1 pound bottle. Works great . No Problems. Ignore the equipment on your RV. Would prefer to use the equipment on the rv if possible as # 1 I paid for it and #2 it is way more convenient and doesn’t take up space in my B.Van which I don’t have.
