Many times the connection with the satellite in our motorhome is deconfigured one day and the other.

But it can also be connection problems, device compatibility itself, or just a bad configuration.

In this photo you can see Jóse, one of our expert caravanón repairmen. He is fixing a dish that did not work properly, finally the problem was localized and it was simply repaired without replacing the antenna itself.
In the following index you can find the different points that will be touched on this page, you can go directly to the one that interests you the most if you think that, that is precisely the failure of the motor home.
1- The Antenna of the Motorhome is not being fed
Although it seems silly, it is not the first time that it happens; Due to the passage of time cables, fuses and connections can deteriorate so that the antenna stops working due to lack of power.
It is easiest to start with the frame where the fuses are, verify that the parabolic is intact, or replace it in the opposite case. After this we would go to check for continuity of the cable from the power supply to the antenna (not the most normal but can happen).
All this would have to be checked if the failure of the antenna is total, that is, no respoonde in any way.
This problem would not be the most serious that we can find, it is relatively simple to repair (if the electrical fault is easily found) and will not cost as high as if the entire antenna had to be repaired or even replaced.
It would be helpful if such checks were carried out by a person who knew or was familiar with the type of electrical installations that a motorhome usually carries, since otherwise it is difficult to know where to start the checks.
