Satellite storage bag recommendations

Hi everyone,
We are very new to RVing. We are in the process of buying a new satellite, Wingard Anser. Any suggestions as to a bag to store it in while traveling? Thank you for any info.

We have the Tailgater. When not in use we bring it in, wipe it down, wrap it in an old blanket and store it in the bottom of the closet.

Satellite storage bag

Thank you for replying. We just wanted to keep everything intact, together & safe as it feels like a major investment. Blanket sounds good to us.

We transport our Tailgater using the satellite bag from CW. It has a side pocket for the coax which I find useful, plus it is padded.

Happygrma,


Agree that it is worth protecting that expensive little pod...

If you want a bag, see CampingWorld ($20-$40) and they are padded:

to
http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...rage-bag/82317

We carry our Tailgater in it's original box (with foam inserts). The box sits in the rear of the RV during travel, protected from falls or vibration.

Best luck

So for those who protect their portable dome, would you do the same if it was mounted on the roof?

If it was mounted on the roof it wouldn't be portable.

No...our Gen I Tailgater was never made to be permanent mounted (not weatherproof for driving force conditions). Falling rain is OK, but not 60MPH sidewinds.

Rooftop units are obviously made differently compared to the portables that are not made to permanent mount.

BTW, out SAT receiver rides on a foam layer inside the entertainment cabinet to reduce vibration from the road...just taking care of these expensive components.

Safe travels

You might be able to repurpose an old motorcycle helmet bag. We race motorcycles and helmets get replaced often. The high end helmets come with a thin dust cover bag with a drawstring that would definitely hold a sat dome and then they come with a padded, zippered bag that is velvet lined. They might fit in one of these.

I might get 1/2 of my Tailgater portable dish into a motorcycle helmet bag. Good thought though.
