OK, I was on the road and my Traveler 3005 died. Winegard said "new turent" but recommended I just put in a SWM to get the warranty, etc. So, I ordered one from Amazon (locals did not have either onhand), had it the next day and the local RV shop installed it. I had TV again.
Here is what I bought:
Winegard SK-SWM3 TRAV'LER Gray DIRECTV SWM Slimline Antenna
Item Weight75.4 pounds
Product Dimensions46 x 27 x 13.8 inches
Item model numberSK-SWM3
Manufacturer Part NumberSK-SWM3
Well, I had direct TV. BUT the antenna control box in the coach and the cable is the same as before. Doesn't a NEW antenna system for 1,600 dollars come with that? If not, where/how do I buy one if I need one?
Second, my Direct TV boxes do not see it as a SWM.
I'm starting to think I got ripped off here.
Finally, today when I try to raise the antenna it says that the control box in the coach can't find an antenna. Is there a fuse or something? Everything worked great when I stowed it and the coach has not moved.
What do you think I should do? I hate to go all the way back to CA to ***** at them to fix it because I am in Virgina now, but...
Thank you SO much in advance for your advice.
