And now that the cat's outta the bag:

YES, OC is building a slider rack for Buffy.

And YES, plans are in place for Sneak and OC, Weezer and TOWTA to meet real time in late August.

THAT is some nice work!

We have not invested in a Satellite dish yet, but will in a year or two when we retire and start heading out west.

This is a REALLY nice setup -- we are planing on some OC & TOWTA time later this year and this may make the RV Bucket list!

Of course each idea was discussed at length with me as my brain went immediately into neutral and I just repeatedly muttered: yeah, that's good....I agree, that design is better....yeah, honey I agree....well, I think your opinion matters most.
Yesterday at the tire dealer the DW did a lot of smiling and saying oh really when i found out I had EZ Lube axles, manual states Alko supplied with the her. I know what you mean!

I *think* I posted a picture of the ladder mount *somewhere* on this forum.

Pure genius in OC's design of that as well.

The pinbox mount will be used a LOT since our 2 favorite local RV parks and sites have us facing EXACTLY the way we'll need for the dish to face with that mount.

Nope, can't find the pic of the ladder mount....OC must have posted those.

I'll take a pic of BOTH mounts with Sneak's adapter this evening, with them and the dish mounted on Buffy. (he was just home on lunch break when the pics here were taken)

I may have to copy the extended tube for mine so I can raise it up higher and maybe use my flag holder at the same time. Good idea Sneaky!

Oh I'm sure he'd be proud to have you use some of his design.

Yes, he mentioned that with the longer post it's adjustable re height.

As stated, he was just home on lunch break when those pics were taken. I'm sure he'll do the complete set up for each mounts (with the dish on them) and post pictures soon, if not this evening then tomorrow evening.

(weather looks like it might get wet this evening)

Looks great, and you can also mount it clear up on the top of the ladder where it turns 90°, altho' I would use a hose clamp to secure it from moving.
