For what its worth, I had a 400mm dome fitted by roadpro installer at the beginning of the season to my 2001 exec which has a somewhat curvaceous roofline and the fitter raised the question that this may present a poor reception issue, however a call was made back to roadpro withe the upshot being to place the dome as far as possible to the rear of the vehicle, away from the Luton bulge.Happy to say the system works great when you get a clear view east but if you are near trees, tall hedges as i was a week or so ago at CC Tewkesbury my luck run out and was forced to watch the dvd. NOTE to self, find EAST with phone app before pitching !!!

Omni-directional aerials do a hard job... they have to be able to sucessfully pull in a signal from any direction and normally through a thick layer of plastic to make it look more pleasing to the eye. Anyone with an omni-directional aerial needs to appreciate this!
Snelly makes some valid points....
I've been following this thread since the start and I cant really see the big deal! Auto-Sleepers fit what's available... OK it might not be the best choice, but if you buy the vehicle from new surely you get the option to specify a different option? Aerials are frequently replaced and upgraded by better aftermarket alternatives by thousands of motorhomers if it bothers anyone that much they should just upgrade it and save yourself the stress
Also, in relation to certain comments in this thread and as a reminder (read the forum rules) lobbying and encouraging others to take legal action against Auto-Sleepers on "This Forum" is not something we welcome as it does nothing to improve our relationship with Auto-Sleeper and could actually result in legal action taken against us! You are welcome to openly discuss these issues and hopefully Auto-Sleepers will take on board any comments, but If you want to take matters further you are of course welcome to do this yourself directly, but don't involve the forum please.

We stayed at Tewkesbury last week and having had problems on other sites near trees we deliberately chose a pitch which was between two large trees but clear to back and front directions and we got a reasonable amount of channels through our Status 315 omni-directional flying saucer aerial.

You want to have clear line of sight south... in fact just very slightly east of south, but definetly not east
Pitch carefully my satellite friends
