Trav'ler 3500 Winegard dish needs repair

I get the message "EL Motor Home Failure". I'm just out of my 2-year warranty and Winegard tells me I need a new turret for $1000. Everything looks great mechanically, and I suspect the circuit board is the problem, but Winegard won't sell just the board-only the complete turret. A few Winegard dealers at shows have told me disgustingly that they can't buy repair parts from Winegard either. Are we dealing with another "Norcold" here? I need a tech that can diagnose my "loose wire" and repair it. I'm in Indio, CA during winter months.

This is a thing with the Wineguard, you have to send in the complete antenna and then they send you another one. They do not send out repair parts. Just make sure that all your connections are in good order, that is about all you can do.

I bought my Wineguard a month before the announcement about RF Mogul. If I had only known, I would have waited and bought one of those. All parts are replacable.

Are you getting the error a lot? I've seen this error where it fails once and you reset it and it never happens again.
