Always A Flange On The Power Post

07 November 2014 - 08:49 AM

We have a very standard 50 amp shore power cord with the blades in the plug configured at a right angle to the cord..  Almost inevitably, there is a flange of some sort on the breaker box right below the receptacle.  The flange is a direct interference and does not allow the plug to enter the receptacle fully.  I have thought it could be good to have some kind of extension but then I would be plugging into a plug which doesn't seem a good thing and I haven't seen such an extension anyway.  I have on occasion when the flange is a straight plastic edge deployed the nippers to cut out a small section so it doesn't interfere but metal boxes are more common.  Does  anyone have  a solution for this matter, or am I the only one who doesn't like it that my plug rarely can fully enter the receptacle?

Can't Connect To Some Wifis With WFR

12 July 2014 - 09:09 PM

At our last two RV parks, we have been unable to hook up to the park's wifi with our WIFI Ranger.  When we hook up with our laptops (no issue at all), a browser page opens and we enter a user ID and password supplied by the park, but when we try to log on to that same wifi with the WFR, a browser page does not open and we don't get any message such as a filtered network to enter log-on information -- it authenticates and tries to connect but eventually we receive the message "no IP address".  How do we get the WFR to connect to these type networks?

Winegard Rayzar Air

Bill Adams, I saw the Rayzar Air touted in one of the recent Winegard news letters.   http://www.winegard....CFc1lfgod-rQA7A

It looks like it might be a better configuration for capturing UHF signals.  I particularly liked the notion that it can capture signal from both sides.  Will this product likely be replacing bat wings on OEM installations?  I didn't see any specs on gain.  How does its gain compare with a batwing?  As all of the covers on my roof are black, I kind of like the idea that you can get one in black or white.  Looks like some good new technology from Winegard!
