Congratulations! You have an RV automated digital
satellite reception product — AS-2003. This unit,
used with your digital satellite receiver, will deliver
the best reception possible. Your new Winegard
digital satellite unit was designed for easy installation, setup and operation.
Your new Winegard RV Digital Satellite Unit is an
easy-to-install, easy-to-use satellite TV reception system. Because it mounts on the top of your
recreational vehicle, it goes where you go and provides quality reception of digital satellite signal in the
continental United States only. Check with your programming provider for exact coverage area.
How Does Digital Satellite System
TV Work?
Satellite programming originates from an “uplink”
facility on Earth — the facility receives many signals
from different sources, combines the signals digitally
and transmits to the satellites. The satellites (22,300
miles above Earth) receive the uplink signal, amplify
it and then transmit it back to earth in the Ku frequency band. This signal is received by your
satellite antenna whose shape reflects and concentrates the signal to the LNBF*
attached to the antenna. The
LNBF is located at the “focal
point” of signal reflection, that is,
the point at which the maximum
amount of signal is effectively
concentrated. The LNBF amplifies and
converts the signal to the 950 to 1450
MHz range. The signal is then passed
through a coaxial cable to the electronics box, then to the receiver where
individual channel selection and processing take place.

FIRST TIME USE:
The unit is factory preset to find 119°W (DISH Network). For DIRECTV, you must change the preset
switches on the outside unit. See Step 8 in Installation,
page 14.The first time your unit is used, allow 10 minutes
for GPS acquisition. (This is also true if you have stored
your unit for six months or longer. This is typical of first
time use; do not think there is a malfunction.
1. Turn TV on and tune to channel 3 or 4 (the output
of your receiver).
2. Turn on your primary receiver. The receiver MUST
BE TURNED ON and LNBF COAX PROPERLY
ATTACHED (refer to your receiver owner manual). If
not properly connected, all LEDs will be on.
3. To search for satellite, see Power On and Satellite
Search procedures, AS-2003 Control Panel
Operation instructions, page 7.
4. After search routine is completed and primary
receiver is at 119 (DISH Network), the unit may
switch between the primary and alternate satellite. A
Check Switch must be performed for toggling
capabilities on DISH Network. See Check Switch
instructions, page 8.
5. After the primary satellite signal is found and Check
Switch completed, the unit may be powered off. To
switch satellites, turn power back on and switch
satellites. The unit can then be turned off. The satel
lite signal last selected will still be “seen” by the dish
when the unit is turned on again.

SATELLITE SYSTEM
Performing Check Switch routine to enable satellite toggle function used with
multi-satellite programming
AS-2003 will toggle between different satellites for the program provider you have. Both DIRECTV and DISH
Network have programming on more than one satellite.
When a channel is selected on the remote control and it is not located on the satellite the unit is currently on,
the system on the vehicle will automatically move to the new satellite. (When using multiple receivers, toggling
is controlled by the primary receiver. The primary receiver is connected to the dish with the white coax; secondary receiver if used, connects with the almond coax).
DIRECTV programming
1. There is some SETUP required for DIRECTV. You must select “Oval Dish 2 Satellites” in the receiver menu. To
change this, see Owner’s Manual for DIRECTV receiver. When you request a channel located on a different satellite,
the unit will automatically move to that satellite.
DISH Network programming (DISH 500)
4. If you still have an error, your vehicle may be parked
so satellites are on either side of the automatic stop
on the roof unit. The dish is unable to locate the
second satellite because it is forced to complete
almost a full revolution because of the stop. (See
illustration.) You can go outside and watch the dish
to see if this is happening.
NOTE: Once these steps have been completed, you
will not need to perform this test again, unless check
switch was performed on another satellite dish such
as a home dish.
1. Wait for unit to acquire the satellite signal on
satellite 119. (See search procedure, pp. 6-7.)
2. After signal has been acquired, 6 minutes remain to
complete Check Switch test; this 6 minutes will
expire with unit on or off. Consult DISH Network
receiver manual to perform Check Switch test.
The solution is to move your vehicle to a different
angle so the satellites are not located on either side
of the stop in the outside unit.
5. Your system is now set up to toggle between
satellites. It will automatically move to the correct
satellite when channel is selected.
3. During the Check Switch Test, the receiver will
begin checking your switch by toggling between
transponders. When this is completed, SW42 will
appear on the screen. It will be at the top of the
screen, satellite designations will be below, showing
odd and even transponders. See illustration below.

NOTE: If a switch other than SW42 appears, or you
have an X in one the of the boxes below the satellites, repeat Check Switch steps.

Installation requirements
To install the Winegard Automatic Digital Satellite Dish,
check with your RV dealer or manufacturer. Your RV may
already be pre-wired for this system, and/or may have a reinforced roof area available.
FIGURE 1
27.80”
27.80
1. Choose a location on the roof that will allow the dish
to raise and rotate without interference from other
roof-mounted equipment.
2. Roof space required for operation is 40”L x 20”W
minimum. Refer to Figures 1, 2, 3 and 5 for operating
parameters.
3. The unit must be level for best operation. The unit may
be up to 2.5° off level. For the fastest, most reliable
operation, it should be as close to level as possible.
Use the hydraulic or manual leveling equipment on
your vehicle to level the roof as much as possible.
Before beginning installation: If the mounting area
is not level, you can use a roof wedge, Figure 4.
Winegard’s RW-5000 roof wedge corrects tilt
up to 3.7°. For units with severely sloping roofs,
more than one wedge may be needed. If the roof
wedge is too thick, use stainless or aluminum washers.
4. When choosing a location for the interior wall plate
control panel, consider wiring, ease of viewing wall
plate and distance from your television set.

2. Place base plate gasket under the base before screwing unit down. Secure the base plate of the
motorized assembly to the roof using appropriate screws. DO NOT APPLY SEALANT AT THIS TIME.
Note: IF YOU ARE USING THE ROOF WEDGE (RW-5000), use the 3/16” gasket included with motorized mount under the roof wedge. Install 1/16” gasket included with the RW-5000 roof wedge between
mount and roof wedge. Longer screws are needed for installation when using roof wedge.
4. Partially unroll your bundled cable and gently remove any kinks.
CAUTION!! See illustrations on page 12. Cable MUST BE ROUTED AS SHOWN IN FIGURE 6, 6A,
and
6B to prevent cable wrap! If not routed correctly, you may STRIP GEARS!
5. Route cable assembly around the base of the unit, Figure 6. FROM THE BACK OF THE ELECTRONICS
BOX TO THE FIRST CLAMP MUST BE 53”!
6. Drill hole for cable entry in appropriate place. THIS MUST BE 4” MINIMUM FROM FIRST CLAMP! You
can also run cable to an existing cable entry hole that meets the same distance requirements (4” minimum), Figure 6A. Be sure cable from mount to entry point is not too tight when dish is in stow position. If
there is not enough slack in the cable, it will bind and prevent proper operation, or damage the
mount.
7. Cut the cable wrap approximately four (4) inches away frompoint where it enters the cable-entry plate,
Figure 7. This allows proper sealant coverage. Do not damage cables when cutting away the cable
wrap. (The cable wrap protects and keeps together in one unit the coaxial cable, electrical cable and
9-wire control cable.) After cutting, wrap the outer cable wrap with electrical tape as shown, Figure 7.
Push cable through cable entry point on roof. Do not damage cable. DO NOT APPLY SEALANT AT
THIS TIME.
8. Place cables in rounded slots on cable entry plate. Fasten down plate with screws provided.
DO NOT APPLY SEALANT AT THIS TIME.

Mounting interior wall plate controller
Inside your vehicle, choose a convenient location for the wall plate controller. Consider wiring layout and distance from your television set. The wall plate uses the
nine-wire mulit-colored cable.
1. Strip end of each wire. Place in harness in the locations indicated in Figure 11. Be
sure there are no individual “strays” from the wires that are not in the slot. These
“strays” can interfere with operation.
2. After putting each wire in the appropriate slot, tighten the screw.
3. When all wires are in place in the harness end, plug this into the back of your wall
plate control panel, as shown in Figure 11. DO NOT plug in upside down or incorrectly; your unit will not operate, or you may cause irreparable damage. Note label
on
board to help with positioning of plug.

Wiring
Wiring the system:
This unit requires a +13.8 VDC fused circuit. Unit draws up to 3 amps. The unit uses sophisticated microprocessor technology and needs “clean” (filtered) power to function properly.
DO NOT USE power designated to operate a +12 VDC lighting circuit from the converter, or a converter that does not have a battery connected to it, or any unfiltered converter! Damage to the
system could result!
If in doubt, contact your dealer or the manufacturer of your vehicle.
NOTE: See page 5, Operation section, of this manual for one and two receiver setups.
1. Make connection of the RED WIRE to +13.8 VDC (constant supply of power).
DO NOT HOOK UP ORANGE WIRE. This is for “Antenna Up” warning sensor
supplied by most RV manufacturer. DO NOT CONNECT ORANGE WIRE TO +13.8 VDC!
Connect the BLACK WIRE to the ground.
2. Connect the “BRIGHT WHITE” (PRIMARY) COAX CABLE to “Satellite In” jack on the
back of your receiver. The primary coax must be hooked to the electronics box. This
receiver controls the toggle function.
3. Connect the receiver “Out to TV” to the television.
4. Plug receiver into 117 VAC receptacle.
5. Connect the other cable to your second receiver/TV.
For proper operation:
1. To check for LNBF voltage, you must have your receiver connected to your
system. Lack of receiver or a bad connection at some point will result in the dish not
being able to lock on any satellite signal. All LEDs on wall plate control panel will be on until cor
rected.
2. Refer to the Operation Section to fully test the system!
Check Switch function and toggling between satellites
For a complete description of these functions, see Operation section.

Troubleshooting the system
WALL PLATE ERROR CODES
This section of your manual will help you
solve occasional problems with your unit. If
you cannot solve the problem after using the
suggestions in this section, contact the retailer or dealer where you purchased this unit,
or call Winegard Technical Support at 1/800/788-4417, Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m.
to 4:00 p.m., Central Time.
OFF & SEARCH LEDs are on —
Satellite search failure. The unit has failed to see the
satellite(s) that are needed to determine the desired
satellite signal, or the unit was stopped during the
Search routine.
Solution
1. DBS (Direct Broadcast Satellite) satellite signals
are in the south to southwest part of the sky. Be
sure there are no obstructions (buildings, trees,
mountains, etc.) that will block some or all of the
satellite signals needed to determine the correct
satellite signal for you.
UNIT WILL NOT PARK
1. Check unit on roof. Be sure there are no obstacles on
the roof that prevent parking.
2. Was the PARK button on the wall plate controller
pressed the correct number of times? See Control
Panel Operation.
ON, PARK, SEARCH & OFF LEDs are on —
No LNBF power has been detected. The unit is not
getting the required LNBF power from the receiver.
3. For the unit to park, the satellite receiver must be
plugged into an active 120 VAC outlet, and the LNBF
power from the receiver must be connected to the
AS-2003. If this is not done, the unit will go to a “No
LNBF Power” error (ON, PARK, SEARCH, OFF
lighted) and will not park.
Solution
1. Be sure the satellite receiver is plugged into a
functioning 120 VAC outlet.
2. Check for 11-18 VDC at the LNBF. Disconnect coax
cable from LNBF and measure voltage between the
copper center conductor (+) and the connector (-).
There should be 11-18 VDC on this coax. If not
present, check all coax connection from this point to
the receiver. To check the output voltage at the
receiver, connect a good piece of coax to the
SATELLITE IN jack on the back of the receiver. DO
NOT insert test light or meter probes directly into the
receiver jack! You may enlarge the connector and
cause a poor connection when coax is reconnected.
3. For new installations, be sure no screws from cable
entry plate or clamps have penetrated the coax.
UNIT WILL NOT PASS “CHECK SWITCH”
FUNCTION (DISH Network only)
1. The receiver must report it is connected to a “SW42”
switch. If you don’t see this report, your receiver cannot
toggle between satellites. You may have to retest the
Check Switch function occasionally.
2. AS-2003 limits the rotation of the turret to prevent
damage to the cable assembly (diagram on page 8).
If the vehicle is parked in a location that forces the
unit to rotate all the way around each time it
searches for a satellite signal, the Check Switch
function will not be completed. Move your vehicle to
face the unit in a different direction.
ON & OFF LEDs are on —
A motor stall has occurred.
Solution
1. The unit has run into an obstacle on the roof while
attempting to elevate or rotate. Visually inspect.
2. Cable length on roof too short, causing restriction
while elevating or rotating. Check cable routing
diagram for correct length and cable clamping.
3. Broken or pinched motor encoder wires, resulting in
loss of encoder data.
3. Be sure the “primary” coax is connected to the
receiver that is operating the Check Switch routine,
and that no devices are inserted on this coax
between the satellite antenna and receiver.
IF THERE IS AN ERROR CONDITION,
CORRECT THE PROBLEM, THEN
TURN THE UNIT OFF AND BACK ON
TO CLEAR ERROR.

connector. (Black wire - ground)
Touch red meter lead (+) to each of the colored wires listed below.
1. White wire voltage range 4.8 VDC - 5 VDC.
(4.7 would indicate damaged circuitry in the electronics housing — replacement of electronics
housing needed.)
Symptom: Unit may not park.
2. Purple wire voltage range 4.8 VDC - 5 VDC.
(4.7 would indicate damaged circuitry in the electronics housing — replacement of electronics
housing needed.)
Symptom: Unit may fail to rotate or elevate.
3 - 6. Blue, green, yellow, orange. These wires should measure .5 VDC or 1.8 VDC, depending on
switch states.
7. Red wire will read supply voltage to the unit when wall plate is switched on.
8. Brown wire will read primary voltage supplied to unit (11 to 13.8 VDC)
9. Black wire is ground.
