Hi
I have a Megasat Caravanman 85 Premium sat system. This particular model has single LNB and no auto skew.
I have searched hi and lo for information on how to adjust the skew ... to no avail.
I hope there's not going to be me clambering about on the roof twisting the LNB ( the LNB appears to be inside a protective moulding ).
From appearances I doubt whether there is any kind of skew motor .
Somebody must know?

If you put the exact words in your title into google. You will get these instructions Scroll to page 29 for setting skew info. Hope it’s useful.

If there is no autoskew, you have two options.

One, climb on the the roof and adjust the skew, or pay someone else to climb on the roof and adjust the skew

Then minute job

Thank you everyone for your much appreciated ideas and tips.
I contacted MEGASAT before posting this and had no reply or acknowledgement from them. I have just only now had a reply from their techies telling me exactly as Eddievanbitz said ... Yup, get on the roof, take off protective cover and adjust by twisting LNB. The Motorhome Fun sat/tv Home section says +15 should do the trick for Europe and UK. hmmm I wonder how many increments that is in the LNB rotation dial.
Think I'll wait until the cold winds and icy weather have gone.
Great Motorhomie Help ... thanks.

You don't say why you need to alter the skew?
It depends on which sat you wish to receive.
East =Hotbird Astra1 Astra2 Skew to left.
West =Hispasat Intelsat Nilesat etc. Skew to right.
And by how much? Depends where you are on earth.

I leave mine a few degrees clockwise, good for France and in the UK it doesn't matter.
