We are full timers and don't watch a lot of TV but since the new digital system went into effect we have poor coverage just off our bat wing antenna. We are considering the more compact carryout model with dish or direct TV but are concerned with how it performs. Is it easy to set up and level, as we see many RV'ers struggling to level and aim their larger satelite dishes. What kind of reception does it get especially in more rural or mountainous areas?? Would appreciate all comments positive or negative and any advice you may want to offer. Thank you
We to are FT'ers and use Dish Network with our Winegard Carry Out automatic dish. I have it mounted on the 5'ver ladder rack. I purchased the mounting plate and made a bracket for the top of the ladder. I can remove the one bolt and relocate the dish withing 50' of the trailer. Cable hooks up in the side satellite hookup along with 12v power.

I have held of answering this for a little bit as I can probably be considered a biased party in this conversation but its been long enough that I wanted to talk about a few of the things in your post.
It may be that you either need to troubleshoot the Batwing or you may want to look into our Wingman attachment to improve your signal levels.
To troubleshoot the Batwing you or someone will need to be able to get to the roof of the coach. It might be best to talk to a dealer but if you feel confident about doing this yourself, give us a call or look in your Sensar manual for troubleshooting directions.
There are a couple different products in the 'Carryout' family. I am going to assume that you are talking about the automatic GM-1518. The Carryout need only be reasonably close to level for it to find the satellite. If you don't get it exactly level, it might take 10-15 seconds longer to find the signal but it will find the signal.
This is the biggest advantage to satellite TV. It doesn't care where you are located. As long as you have a view of the southern sky... (and are in the continental US) you can get TV.
