It looks so lonely out there. Nice looking install. I would check your sensor wires for the motor and make sure they are hooked up good. Also might be the sensor itself.

Is it safe to say you may not like your neighbors or are you installing it in a prison courtyard? Other than that looking nice.

I took a 6v charger out and hooked it to the motor and it moved east to west and i think the receiver toshiba trx-80 is shorting out.When i hit move the receiver shuts down. If i had to go with an other way to move to ajak motor would a vbox work or any other ideas.Oh i live in an HOA and my wife siad some one was driving around lokking hard iam sure it not a B.U.D. head like my self admiring the cool dish no I dont think so. My wife said wait a little while and see what happens befor investing.
Thanks to all for the help and taking a look at pics.

I've drove the 303 a few times on our way to Bullhead city. It's alot better than taking Grand Ave. :eek::D.
Here an old pic from 2006 when i had both the 6ft and 10ft up.

.The unit blinks off when you hit west or east move sat and you here a clicking sound like its shorting out and comes back on.

If I recall correctly, this issue is fairly common and is caused by a bad capacitor on the front panel of the TRX-80. I don't remember the cap label. I did this repair a few times but it has been years. It's not that hard but you have to remove the front panel.

And how often do you go to Bullhead City? I live in Golden Valley and work in Oatman.

Photto

At least once a year. My wife has family there. I'm familar with Golden Valley too, as my wife's grandmother lived their. 1 bro'n'law works at Findlay motors and the other works at the casino in Laughlin. My father'n'law used to live their too. But he recently moved to Nashville.

OK I Googled and found it - the caps are C809 and C810 on the front power supply. One is a 10uf and the other is a 33 uf electrolytic capacitor. Remove the front panel and you can unsolder both without removing the power supply. Their identifiers are etched on the back of the power supply. Use a pair of tweezers to remove. Pay attention to polarity in replacing caps. One has the negative to the left (as you look at it). The other has the negative to the top.
This is an issue with the TRX80, TRX100 and TRX120.

I don't know if it's better but it's definitely cheaper if you know how to solder. Those caps should only cost a couple of bucks.
