I have the Mobil plan that you can cancel and start again at no cost - but I turned it back on a month or so ago on the lowest channel plan. Just upped to 200 plan I think it is. So signal sent and working.

It isn't the In Motion Model that follows the satellite while you drive. That may be what you have and why it's fully automatic. I saved a few $$ getting the Stationary - may have been unwise...

Roadtrip Mission in black..
RV Antenna - Winegard Roof Mounted RV Satellite Antennas

Its really just like pointing Dish at home. You don't need any coordinates - or Apps.. ???

So to add to the confusion - it might actually be the Winegard Roadtrip MiniMax ... same features..
Sorry Steve, just got back on. I put in a Winegard Traveller [did it myself] and it's a rooftop, stationary dish. After trying & fooling around with the tripod system, I just got fed up & went for it. It's nice, but it's Directv, because that is what we have home & just use the boxes from home. Super HD reception, and as I said, simply with a push of the POWER button. Have had it for several years now with no problems. I don't deal with the local channel changing, since we're only out a few months at a time. The only time I fool with a zip code change is for the weather channel.

This past year, I also picked up a Winegard Anser carryout for those times we're stuck under the trees. The Anser is also automatic, but not HD for Directv but HD for DISH..

That's why I posted it & said it that way. Seems you were the only one who picked up on it. Steve didn't pick up on it......oh well....I guess he just doesn't get it, sometimes.....

Thanks Larry - we will probably never live there but we are interested in learning a little about our new "home state" - South Dakota - especially Sioux Falls. We can be good citizens even from afar.

Judy, very interesting & something to think about. Especially when I'm in the middle of fixing our basement plumbing & drain valves!!!!! Now, if they can configure the liquid to drain into a black tank.

For anyone interested, here is the direct link to the website Judy was referring to: Composting Toilet: What is it and Why you need one | Gone With The Wynns

I was waiting, and waiting, and waiting, and he and Dave never picked up on it. I think they skip over the good parts.

Thanks for the offer Wayne. Annie not feeling well today at all. Hardly out of bed at all. I am trying to organize a few things but can't really do much since there is still stuff at the apartment we need to bring to Bonita. Not much sense in putting things places when I don't have a view of what needs stashing. At least that's what I'm going with....

"Annie not feeling well today at all. Hardly out of bed at all."

Annie is having a really tough time these past few weeks and it's catching up with her. The body says, You WILL slow down!" Sometimes it's best to get that bedrest (and plenty of fluids) when she can.

I hope it isn't anything more serious. Lots of ommmms and good vibes goin' her way from here. Hugs!

That's how we know it was filmed outdoors and not on a studio blue screen, yes? 😚

I picked up on it, and was the culprit that tossed Larry a crab! But it was innocently intentional.
And a pleasant Veterans/Armestice Day to all my fellow veterans, even those that were not in the USN.
