Winegard P4 Me thinks that P4 may be something they cooked up just for Lance. bardw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

200,000 miles on my pickup and I have not put one single penny into any 4wd drive train components. Since 1981, I've owned 8 new 4x4 trucks and jeeps. I've never spent a single nickel on a 4x4 driveline related repair on any of them. I also have a highly modified TJ which I have spent a small fortune on......but that is another story. :) :) :) bradw

RE: Using Winegard Satelite Dish Far From Home???

Personally, I would select 18" round at that will pull in 101 only. There's nothing available on 119 unless you use some special language programming. The dome (an R4, not P4) also has 2 outputs. If you (or someone) ran both coax into the coach you can use the 2nd tuner of the DVR as well. Glad to hear you have it working! Thanks for the info. The reason we selected (18 x 20 “triple-sat-LNB) instead of (18” Round LNB) was when we first called Winegard helpline several months back, that is what they sugested. I will try 18" Round LNB next time we have the receiver out there. The display showed two 101 satellites and two 119 satellites. It showed a check mark by both 119's, but only one of the 101's. If 119's don't have anything on them I need, then I don't need them. I'm pretty sure our model number is P4, but I will check it again. The dome came with our 2019 Lance truck camper and was installed at the factory. It appears they only ran one coax. Thanks for your help, bradw

RE: Using Winegard Satelite Dish Far From Home???

OK, thanks again for all the advice and help. Based on the info provided, I updated my own instructions as shown below. We went out and tried it and it worked. Based on the info y'all provided, I only have to reset the Direct receiver when I move it between the house and camper. Once in the camper, I won't have to reset it when we move to a new location. And I also learned there is nothing special I need to do when we travel from the southeast to out select another satellite. Thanks again for the help, bradw Set-Up Camper DirectTV - 11/01/19 -Should only have to reset Direct Receiver when it is moved between house to camper -Direct Receiver Model: HR24 -Winegard Roof-Mounted Dome Antenna Mod: Road Trip P4 -Connect DVR (Sat Input 1) to satellite antenna COAX -Turn on TV using power button on Jensen TV control -Dish receiver on 480P, then push RES button to select -Connect white, red, and yellow cables between TV and DVR -Press “Source” button on Jensen TV remote and select “AV” -Select 480P on DVR with RES Button -DirecTV remote – hold “exit” to confirm 480P -DirectTV DVD Remote -press “menu” -“repeat satellite setup” -press Dash ( - ) -Dish type: 18 x 20 “triple-sat-LNB (other option not selected was 18” Round LNB) -RB/INTL: none selected -switch type: multi switch -tuners: single -continue -Turn antenna on and let dish find satellite -Retest -Screen will show 101 and 119 with check marks (3 of 4) -continue -continue -set up remote later -screen message will read “receiving satellite info” -continue -DVR Receiver will reboot itself (takes about 10 minutes) -watch DirectTV

Thanks all for the good info. Like I said, this is all new to us and we are struggling with it. We will go out there tomorrow and try again. Thanks, Bradw

Using Winegard Satelite Dish Far From Home???

We just got back from a trip to Yellowstone from our home in Alabama. We could never get our Winegard Roof Dome Antenna and Direct Satellite Receiver functioning properly. I admit that this is all pretty new to us, but we did get it all to work before we left home. Our dish system is pretty simple, just turn it on and let it find the satellite. Then we have to go through set up mode on the Direct receiver. We could never get the thing working. We tried at 3 differ locations while on the trip. They all had unobstructed views of the southern sky. I guess we should have called Winegard or Direct help line, but we never really needed it to work to actually watch something important, we were just making sure we knew how to use it. Well obviously we didn't and it was usually late in the day when we tried and we just gave up. My question is, since we travelled a long ways west and a long ways north, is there something we should have done differently to set up the antenna or Direct receiver to tell it we needed to look at a different satellite or whatever? Thanks for any help, bradw

RE: Overloaded wheel Breakage

For some vehicles, its important to get hub centric wheels. I don't know if that was an issue here. bradw

I've wanted a Rokon since 1972.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Since 99% of the winches are on 4X4 vehicles and you seldom see one on a 2x2 vehicle; obviously 4X4's need more help getting there than 2x2's. Right?????

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

About 90% of the time, camper is on the truck. Bradw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Them aspens didn't grow without rain and them Camry street tire tracks on the hill show me it ain't much of a hill. You keep that 2wd rig of yours at home or on pavement if there is a shower in the forecast or you may be out there for a while. I would love to watch you go off Red Cone in 2wd high. :) :) :) bradw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Fact is that my RWD did perfectly for the offroading I needed. Just go to previous page and see the picture. That's the fact. Glad it didn't come a shower; you would still be there.

RE: Carport

I have a VersaTube structure, rated at 90 mph wind load and 65 lb. snow load. It’s 30’ long by 12’ wide by 12’ high side wall, with 13.5’ in the peak. GeoBoy, The height on mine will be very close. When you say the high side wall height is 12'-0", is that 12' from the concrete to the roof sheet metal or is that 12' to the bottom of the roof structural rectangular tube the roof sheet metal roof sets on? Basically, is there a full 12' clearance at the edges of the cover when you back your TC under it? Or is it 12' minus 2" or 3" for the roof support tube? thanks for your help, bradw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

You remind me of someone I know in an ATV forum who will argue "his opinion" forever because he believes that his opinion is better than everyone else. Me thinks it's a slow day in Idaho. :) Bradw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Ok, I give up. I now believe a 2wd drw truck is the perfect choice for you going elk hunting in the winter in Idaho while towing a trailer. Perfect choice. Carry on men! :) :) :) bradw

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Speaking on behalf of the truck alone, I have never met anyone who has said “I wish I had bought a 2WD”. I have met dozens of people who have said “I wish I had held out for a 4WD”. I grew up in small rural USA and live in a rural community- As others here have already said I think it’s about the “truck” and your lifestyle. Ditto. The two DRWs I've owned would get stuck on wet grass in my yard in 2wd. With all the weight of that big motor over the front tires, rear wheel traction is minimal. bradw
