Sorry for not getting back to you sooner, had some medical issues the last few days and was not able to get the model number and the "rest" of info, until today.
Model number is G402-885, the transmitter is a IF-100. Now the next thing is, I was corrected by my wife the engineer who "really" set the wireless fence up. What she did was mount the transmitter about 18" inside our basement (at least I had that right!). Two inches behind where she mounted the transmitter, she built a second "wall" where she installed a piece of metal (cookie sheet thickness plus) about 36" wide. Behind the transmitter from the top of the basement down and under the bottom and to the front of the transmitter to "squelch" the signal to form the 180 degrees on the front side of our 5th wheel. I have to admit, she used her knowledge to re-design the system to make the 180 pattern, and here all the time I thought it was a flip of the switch.
Sorry about my "stupidity! I should have gotten ALL the info before I jumped in and replied to the thread, (guaranteed I will next time!). The old saying, "Once learned, twice burned!" LOL
So I really believe, and from what I've be told from the engineer of our project, you could use any unit and do the same to make it 180 degrees, but I am not going to guarantee anything. You might make contact with alien's from outer space, or have a drone crash into your unit! No telling....

Hope this helps and God bless,
Mike

Think about this...

How would you like to be shocked just for being curious or trying to further explore your world? There are humane ways to effectively deal with the roaming nature of animals while at the same time protecting them from wandering or becoming lost. The electric fence is a cold, technocratic and lazy non-solution.

Dogs learn that they get shocked, but also learn to take it knowing it is brief and run pass it. By the way I know that you know that all dogs have to be on a 6' leash in any CG, State Park or COE property's some are pretty strict about it. Those systems are pretty expensive to boot. Don't get me wrong I'm a dog lover and bring mine all the time.

X2 Many campgrounds will not allow dogs to be off leash period , some do not even allow the little fences/ pens. Do not assume that the electric fence is ok, check the campgrounds you go to first.... I would bet many do not allow them.
Several web sites I have seen state that if you do not follow their pet rules you will need to kennel your pets at your expense or leave.............. some are even imposing fines of $75-$100.

We always take our two dogs & sometimes 3. But I feel an invisible fence is a bad idea. Seen to many dogs escape & end up lost or worse. Just my 2 cents.

Wow... This thread sure did take a turn. We're all up-to-date on what's humane and campground rules, but thank you for the reminders. A thank you to all the non-judgmental posts as well. It will help us in determining what's best for our family.

You asked how it works and the simple answer is is does not as I do not know of any campground that we stay at that it would be allowed. Maybe some would. But some will not even allow the outdoor fences/ pins. No judgement here just answering how it works. Many campers would call animal control or the host, or owner if there was a loose dog on a camp site.

Just giving a non judgemental opinion the experience of 30 years of camping mostly with dogs.

Not suggesting anything but the the campground rules are getting stricter as people continue to push the envelope & try to bend the rules.
