The connector (plug) on my Carryout is broke. the plastic that was pop-riveted to the Carryout body broke away from the pop-rivets. I have to be careful when connecting the power by holding the broken piece tightly while I connect. The positive and negative wires connect to the inside are 22 gauge at max. Very thin wires. One of these days I'll swap out the connect for a sturdier one.

So yes, they are fragile. With those thin wires i'm guessing that the current through them is at the small milliamp level.

I don't trust RF connectors on coax cables. At the first sign of trouble I'll meter the cable for shorts and continuity just as a check. They are the first in my series of test to ensure they are alright for the task.

Then, most of us go through a distribution box, (BOMB) and any one of the connectors , or even the switches on the BOMB could be source of the problem.

So many things that can be checked.

I am not happy with my Wineguard Carryout. I have to run it directly to receiver to make it work while my manual sattelite dish worked fine using coach wiring from rear compartment. Does anyone else have this problem? Is the signal stronger from my old bigger manual aiming dish than the smaller carryout?

The signal could be stronger with the 18" dish, especially if you are in the lower signal strength areas of the country. In the midwest I get the same with the Winegard crank up 18" dish and the Carryout.

I would check all the connections. I even run mine through a diplexer with no problem.
