    I bought this satellite just after buying our first 5th wheel. Its very easy to setup and we were watching satellite tv in just a few minutes. I also bought the satellite finder. The only problem I found is that its hard to store after use, but well worth the money.

    Great Dish

    This dish gives a great signal. I am a Direc TV user, a full time RV'r, and love this dish. It folds up flat for storage and is easy to set up. The assembly instructions are not real clear and it takes a little time to put together. While this dish comes with a compass it also needs a bubble level for setting up on an uneven surface, like the ground. I use wood shims for leveling, then watch the bubble level as I swing the dish looking for a signal. The elevation setting on the dish is not clear and appears to be the metal edge inside the elevation slot, where the wing nut is located, near the degree markings on the left side. A signal meter is helpful, but not necessary if you can hear the signal meter coming from Direc TV, during dish setup, on your television.
