Watch those trees!

I installed my Tailgater using a quick release mount a week ago. Today, I drove under a tree and broke the Winegard Air 360 and the Tailgater :( I know I知 lucky to not have done more damage. The RV was dropped off today for some planned work so I added a new Winegard to the list.

Been their, done that. I have a Winegaurd Traveler. Hit it twice and just bent the dish. They are truly a solid built unit. I thought it may hurt the motor or strip gears. Nope, it will take a licking.

We have dish satellite TV at home. We use the dish anywhere app on our phones to watch TV in the motorhome. We simply cast the video to the TV. So as long as we have good cell service it works for us.

This device will let you send video wireless to you TV from a PC, Android or iPhone.

Thanks. We致e been running on a 100gb cell plan so we haven稚 done a lot of streaming. Once I get my Starlink working that will change.

I値l probably remove the mount, seal the holes and put a solar panel over it.
