How do I set the skew?  I have found the info but not sure how to set.  If I have a -15 skew, what setting should the dish be set to?  75 degrees or 105 degrees?  Can some one explain the negative and positive skew settings?  Thanks in advance.

I assume you are using the dishpointer app with a negative skew listing;

 

Therefore it would be 105 degrees or 15 degrees counter-clockwise from level (90 degrees on the antenna mount) when standing behind the dish.

 

I guess your location is therefore west of the 101 longitude meridian.

Thanks, that is what I was thinking but just wanted to make sure.  Yes I am located in Utah at the moment.  I am a full time RV'r and move often.  For some reason I am not getting all my HD channels.  Getting some of them but not all.  Very Strange.  The wind did come up yesterday and blow my dish over and now I am having this issue.  Dish is all set back up now and TIED DOWN.  I am learning as I go.  Will never set up without tying it down again.

Might not hurt to check the 'bowl' for dings, puckers, dents, dollops, creases, or any other blems.

 

You're probably OK, but I saw a dish last summer so subtly whinged I didn't notice anything amiss, and had to call a tech to be told about it.
