Personally, I would select 18" round at that will pull in 101 only. There's nothing available on 119 unless you use some special language programming.
The dome (an R4, not P4) also has 2 outputs. If you (or someone) ran both coax into the coach you can use the 2nd tuner of the DVR as well.
Glad to hear you have it working!


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Thanks for the info. The reason we selected (18 x 20 “triple-sat-LNB) instead of (18” Round LNB) was when we first called Winegard helpline several months back, that is what they sugested. I will try 18" Round LNB next time we have the receiver out there.

The display showed two 101 satellites and two 119 satellites. It showed a check mark by both 119's, but only one of the 101's. If 119's don't have anything on them I need, then I don't need them.

I'm pretty sure our model number is P4, but I will check it again.

The dome came with our 2019 Lance truck camper and was installed at the factory. It appears they only ran one coax.

Thanks for your help,
bradw

While I am not familiar with a P4, there is also not an R4, my bad. There is a T4 (watch TV while in motion), D4 Durasat (most meant for truckers) and a G3 (auto dome but works while parked only).

Winegard P4

Me thinks that P4 may be something they cooked up just for Lance.

Certainly might be. I worked for Winegard and I have never heard of it.
