    Tron, the bolts that I tightened were in the inside of the casing, not the ones behind the warranty sticker seal. These two bolts were holding the motor, one was fairly loose the other was not snugged.

    It rained last night so my backyard is a swamp, hopefully tomorrow I will ge the chance to work with the larger dish.

    That should be okay to tighten.

    My yard does the same thing after heavy rain. Keep us updated, hope the loose fitting was the issue.

    I have just set the 1M Ku band dish project aside for now. With all the previous rain that this area experiernced in the last weeks my backyard ground got over saturated and it has affected the pole alinghtment therefore after installing the 1M dish the last time, I bubble checked the pole and it is out of kilter....Going have to replace the pole with a much deeper in ground.

    Louisiana water table is very shallow and this dish is a bit too top heavy for the pole, the pole was not bury deep enough and it moved out of alightment....The pole worked perfect for the small dish, but not anynore.

    If you have no signal on 110, try taking a receiver outside, eliminate the cable and the motor as culprits before swapping out lnb.
    BTW; it is warm here -11f at 8am this morning...Click image for larger version.
