Satellite Dish Mount for RV Ladder

There’s a type of satellite dish mount for RV ladder instead of using the traditional tripod which can be a very unstable.

Using a 10 foot galvanized fence post, same diameter as the tripod and 3 gate hinges, we mounted the dish on the RV ladder.

Fasten the hinge clips to the ladder and to the fence post. Clip the two together and the satellite dish is neatly out of the way.

When parked we position the dish high enough above the RV to avoid disruption of signal, and it simply lowers to travel. It is solid even in high winds, and it avoids theft of your dish. You can fasten a couple of rubber bungee cords around the post when you travel for extra security.

Sure beats messing with a tripod and storage of the dish while traveling is no longer a problem. This photo shows the post attached to the ladder. It has a clear view of the sky. It doesn’t need to be weighted down to protect it from high wind and lowers to ride on the ladder during travel.
