OPERATION
FINDING THE SATELLITE
TUNING ANTENNA FOR THE BEST PICTURE
STEP 1. Your receiver should indicate it is receiving a
signal. To tune your antenna, slowly move the antenna
left, then right, until you find the position with the highest signal strength. It is important to turn the antenna
slowly. Because the signal is digital, it takes a few
seconds for the receiver to lock on.
STEP 2. Place rotation clamp in the LOCK position. This
prevents the antenna from moving and losing signal.
STEP 3. Slowly raise, then lower the antenna until you
have “peaked” the signal (found the strongest signal).

WATCHING OFF-AIR TV
To watch the area (local) television programming, use
one of these options —
• Use an A-B switch between the receiver and antenna
power supply.
• Use a video switch, Figure 1.
• Connect antenna output from power supply to TV
ANTENNA input on receiver, Figure 2. When you turn off
the receiver, it automatically switches you to off-air.
STEP 1. Step outside the vehicle and, using a compass,
determine which direction is North. (Standing in or near
the vehicle can give you an incorrect reading.) The more
accurately you determine North, the easier it will be to
find the satellite(s).
STEP 2. Using satellite receiver, determine correct
elevation for your location. See your receiver manual for
setup information.
STEP 3. Press button on Winegard Digital Display wall
plate. If the antenna is in travel position, the display will
show LL for Low Limit. HL for High Limit will show when
dish is in Up position.
STEP 4. Crank elevation handle to raise antenna. Stop
cranking when readout displays the correct elevation for
your location.
STEP 5. Rotate antenna VERY SLOWLY until correct
satellite signal is acquired. NOTE: Rotate 3° and then
stop. DO NOT rotate continuously, even if you are rotating slowly. If you notice the elevation angle has changed,
it may be due to the following reasons:
a. RV is not parked level.
b. Antenna system is mounted to a slightly sloped RV roof. (This is not a problem. When you have rotated the antenna so it is facing in approxi-
mately the right azimuth [compass direction], simply adjust to correct elevation and continue searching for the satellite signal.)
Special notes: When you have detected the satellite
signal, adjust the antenna up/down and left/right for the
strongest signal your receiver displays. Because of differences in receivers and installation methods, you may
find the elevation numbers, after peaking on the strongest signal, no longer match what the receiver recommended. This is normal. The elevation sensor should
always get you close enough to find a signal to peak on.
If display turns off while you’re searching, just push button for another minute of operation. After a little practice,
most people can find the signal in 30 to 50 seconds.
TROUBLESHOOTING
• If digital display reads EE, check wiring and connection. If wiring and connections are not correct at installation, operation is affected.
• Remember to rotate antenna VERY SLOWLY until correct satellite signal is acquired.
DISPLAY CODES
HL................... High Limit
LL................... Low Limit
Lo................... Battery Low
Er................... Communication Error
— —................ Initializing
NOTE: Initialization may take up to 5 seconds.
Based on 5 minutes a day of usage, standard
new alkaline batteries should last 88 days.
LOWERING ANTENNA TO TRAVEL POSITION
STEP 1. Set rotation clamp to ROTATE position.
STEP 2. Fully rotate antenna counterclockwise until
pointer on directional handle aligns with red screw on
rotation clamp.
STEP 3. Turn elevating crank counterclockwise in direction of “DOWN” arrow until resistance is met. The
number of turns will vary according to the elevation
angle the antenna was set to.
STEP 4. Move rotation clamp to the LOCK position.
2
CAUTION: Under no circumstances lower the
antenna to any position other than travel position!
OPERATIONS DO’S AND DON’T’S
DO’S
1. Do check parking location for obstructions before raising antenna.
DON’T’S
1. Don’t move RV/Coach with the antenna in the UP
position. This will VOID your warranty. This may also
cause damage to your roof.
2. Do carefully raise, lower and rotate the antenna — if
difficult, check for cause.
2. Don’t force the elevating crank up or down. Check for
the cause.
3. Do rotate slowly when searching for the satellite(s)
and check fine tuning on TV set for proper adjustment.
3. Don’t rotate directional handle hard against stops.
4. Do lower antenna before moving vehicle.
4. Don’t apply paint on top of base plate or anywhere on
the lift.
5. Activate programming by calling programming provider for your receiver.
SUGGESTED SETUPS
FOR MULTIPLE TVS
5. Don’t apply approved sealing compound on gear
housing.

INSTALLATION AND ASSEMBLY
TROUBLE SHOOTING
NO PICTURE ON TV
1. Do you have a clear line of sight to the satellite? Are
there trees, buildings, etc. in the way? Figure 3 illustrates
the look angle of your reflector.
2. Do you have the menu from the receiver? If not, check
the channel the TV set is tuned for — it should be 3 or 4.
3. Check connections at the receiver, TV and antenna.
THINGS YOU NEED
Screwdrivers (Phillips and slot)
1-3/4” hole saw
7/16” wrench

na
NO SIGNAL FOUND
1. Have you entered the correct zip code into the receiver? If the zip code is wrong, you may be searching in the
wrong direction or elevation for the satellite.
2. Is your TV working properly? Does it receive pictures
from off-air stations or your VCR?
3. Re-tune system for the best picture, using procedure
on page 2.
4. Inspect antenna. Has it been damaged? If it is even
slightly bent, the receiver may not receive signal.
5. Do you have +12 VDC at the end of the LNBF cable?
Remove cable from LNBF before testing.

STEP 15. Remove the nut over the cut end of the
threaded rod. This cleans the threads after cutting.
STEP 16. Thread the cut end of the rod into the hub,
STEP 17. Install the ceiling plate. The rotate/lock
lever must point toward the rear of the vehicle.
Be sure rotate/lock lever is pointing toward back
of vehicle and hole in ceiling aligns with hole in
the ceiling plate.
NOTE: Make sure large and small keyways line
up in the hub and directional handle!
STEP 18. Measure and cut the directional handle;
see Figure 12 and chart, Figure 11. NOTE: A tube
cutter is recommended for cutting the directional
