Trav'ler Install - Portland Or Area

Need to replace my King-Dome 9702 with a brand new Winegard Trav'ler SlimLine 3 in the Portland Oregon area. Want an outfit with experience with the Winegard Trav'lers. And I also need to locate a "Split RG6" cable to convert from a split cable serving two locations into two independent RG6's.

I can't help you with a location, but will say the Winegard Trav'Ler really doesn't really need an especially technical person or company to install. The biggest decision is where you want to set it on the roof.

The install is, set it down, outline it with a pencil, pick it up, place a bead of silicone just inside the outline and set it back down. Run the approximately 10-12 screws provided through the holes in the sat base and it's installed. Drop the cables through the hole the old sat used, connect the RG6 cables to your box(s) and the control cable (plug in) to the back of the Winegard box and turn on.

Sometimes the hardest part is getting it on the roof.

I got a quote from Camping World near Troutdale in North East Portland last month. They would remove my Motosat and install the Winegard for $1806.00. I got the Motosat working good and decided to keep it for the time being.

That's strange, the advertising flyer I got last week quoted a Presidents Club member install price at $299.

I wish I could tackle that install job, being real cheeeeeeeeeeeep & all but health problems eliminate that option.

I believe Winegard is in Portland. Maybe they could give you some leads on installers?

I know it's a bit of a drive but if you are heading south a bit I just had one installed at Innovative Coachworks in Junction City. I went there because of a number of recommendations from people at the NW Area FMCA rally.

Really nice folks and did a great job.
