Fantastic! Thanks. I will try this mid-November. (I’m asking my upholsterer to replace the funky textured fabric with ultraleather that matches the hampers at the foot and head of the bed and then reupholster the cushions in sunbrella deep blue fabric for a contrast.)

Do you have any challenges with the wind banging the flag pole against the back of the Airstream? I really like the way you did you set up. I ended up getting a flag pole holder and running mine through the window frame at the front end.
The WeBoost units are amazing. I really like the results.

Steve, if I understood Lynn's comment correctly, takes his antenna output to the Satellite connection on the rear street side, and then picks up this signal inside with another cable to the Weboost base unit. His second photo shows this elegant solution IMO.

I am pretty sure our 2014 FC20 has the same twin ports back there [CATV and Satellite TV].

Nice!

Peter

Ditto on the WeBoost.

Steve, if you look closely at the bottom picture you can see that I mounted the flagpole at slight a angle to take care of that problem.

I mounted the flagpole straight up and down,(with a slight offset to the rear hand side) I get very little movement from it even in the wind

This one looks like yours, but is discontinued. Would appreciate more info about the antenna you used, as well as the base unit inside.

Thanks,

The base unit that I purchased which includes the top part of the antenna you see in the pictures was a WeBoost Drive 4G-X RV.

The ground plane and the flagpole attachment to that antenna, I made myself.


A flat to metal ground plane comes with the kit however I felt was inappropriate, stuck 20 foot in the air with the wind.

If you would like I can get you additional information on exactly what I made.

Thanks Lynn,

Here that unit is for everyone's information:

https://www.weboost.com/products/drive-4g-x-rv
https://www.amazon.com/weBoost-47041.../dp/B01N705CF3

The Weboost site includes PDF copies of the specs and user manual FYI.

I probably won't get around to this until next season, so no further details needed at this time, but thanks for the offer.

Someone else had posted a similar high pole solution in another thread, and it seems like a great approach. Yes, you have to put the pole and antenna up each time, but the increased reception seems worth the effort IMO.

Thanks again,

Peter

Has anyone tried to replace the screen on the windows by the dinette? Seems easy until you realize the cabinets are about an inch lower than the top bead of the screen and it takes some magic to get the bead in. A screen bead roller won’t work. Fingers don’t work. Any ideas?

Plz see my reply in your new thread, which will bring many non-20-footer replies IMO.

wulfraat just posted in this thread:

. . . a link for checking for AS recalls, which leads to this page:

http://www.arfc.org/rvs/airstream/fl...d/recalls.aspx

. . . where near the bottom there are some recalls which may apply to you, Bob, and the rest of us.

Happy trails,

Peter

[OT quote to get your attention . . . ]
Just got back from 2 weeks in RenoReno and Bishop.... where we caught the SpaceX launch coming over N Palisade (eastern side of the Sierras)

https://www.reuters.com/video/2018/1...eoId=471462281

I was thinking a light dot like the video starts out and so no camera/phone and no time to go back and to the house, but this link is very real. Truly incredible

back to Peter's post..as for the quote to get your attention...the link is regarding plumbing ells to ease restrictions and provide for better flow.

However I'll look for my earlier post re the propane tray. Mine (for memory) 1 never screwed in, 2 that cam off in my had and 1 intact....and the local dealer had signed off on it being complete. Ballistic did not accurately describe my reaction with the dealer and JC.

as for the tires, I wonder if ther is some confusion re D/E on the 20's the old GYM' were D, but the new GYE's are E's. However some dual axle units may only need the D's to be within range. I may be misreading this tho.

as for the ele recall, I'll have to check my mfg date and give JC a call. I suspect fr me, this could have slipped between the cracks like the propane tray) as while mine was a 2014 sold new and not used, was not bought until 5/2015...maybe the notified the dealer, which explains a lot especially in light of the tray inspection (above)

Peter thanks for the ele heads up!

Rovin Raven, not here...I presumed the roller would fit. Makes sense that it doesn't

Lynnsr...nice mf'ring for the holders. Great idea and location.


I can't use the Sat connection as I installed our wally in the Blu-Ray spot and the sat connection is spoken for. However I have always thought about using the same connection method (OEM sat/Cab) cover for a skin intrusion for a we-booost. I'm also considering using the blank cover for wiring intrusion for additional stop/turn signals at the bumper level (fed internally from the existing lights) as the bike cover, obstructs the lights when the bike cover is on. I think in one of the weboost threads someone used the std cover but with a foam sheet (sliced in an x patter) to allow the wiring to pass thru with the cover up.
