Questions & Answers
Over the past year, I have noticed that the antenna on the feeder part (but not the handheld remote) is worn out. Can you suggest a place to purchase an antenna replacement?
It is possible to purchase a replacement antenna from Elusive Wildlife Technologies that will easily screw on and replace the existing It is a pleasure to answer.
In the event that the harness is stacked on the motor, does it include diodes that will prevent voltage from flowing backwards to the timer?
A diode or an ESD protector is incorporated in the timer units in order to protect them from feedback voltages and ESD generated by DC Motors.
Can this be connected with a remote control to a feeder motor with a wiring harness included?
It does, on the wiring harness there are 2 plugs. The one that plugs directly into the motor wire lead can be connected to the motor. The other can be connected to your timer wire lead. It's great to hear from you!
The American feeder I use for the metal rings has a remote connection, but they no longer sell the remote will this work just as well?
If it has a different plug from the one on your American hunter feeder, you can wire it in with some wire nuts if it doesn't have the same plug as the one on yours. It is a pleasure to answer your question.
Selected User Reviews For The Remote Wireless Radio Controlled Deer Feeder Remote Control
There was a time when I was ready to toss this thing out
As far as my experience is concerned, the Remote does not always work as advertised. According to the article, it appears to depend on what kind of feeder it is attached to. After much diagnosing, trying different things and compiling information about how to get one feeder working and then move onto the next feeder and diagnose / use the data from previous repairs, I have several All Season feeders and some other shop-built Due to a structural interference between the feeder unit and the metal shield under the feeder motor, the All season stand and fill feeders that have the metal corn drop shield beneath the feeder motor are not suitable for installing the receiver unit as specified. My next attempt was to drill a hole in the side of the feeder box and hang the antenna from it. I've tried this, but it doesn't work, at least beyond 30 yards. In order to install the antenna, I drilled a hole in the shield and placed the antenna through the hole in the shield. The hole in the shield matched the center of the receiver box, so I tried that. I experimented with this feeder for one week and it worked up to that point, then quit (it's only 69 yards Whatever the case may be, I am still stumbling over that one. It has been stated on the product information that the remote receiver unit is weatherproof. Thus, I moved both the unit and the feeder box outside while utilizing the hole in the bottom of the feeder box to run the wires through where the antenna used to protrude. In the end, I had to adhere the receiver unit to the outside of the feeder box with heavy duty gorilla tape (though I know that this is not the most secure solution for long term, and that it needs to be secured by a fastener through the feeder box I got this to work! Although not by much, it did the trick. Holding the ball at arms length from the window of the blind at 79 yards (rolleyes) is required. Like the ground fill feeders, I installed the shield as directed in the instruction book on my other feeders, including the one that has a metal shield on the bottom to slide the corn that drops out from under the feeder. The metal plate that comes out of the bottom of the feeder box is 6 inches The antenna tip is 8 inches below the ground, not on it. There is a blind at 67 yards, and this didn't work in the early stages or at least beyond 30 yards. As a result, I followed the same procedure on this one as well, and it worked, not by much, but it worked. For the regular all-season stand and fill feeder that just has a metal mesh underneath the feeder box and not a solid metal plate, I installed the receiver unit according to the manual with the antenna in the middle of the feeder box and it works on a feeder that is 103 yards long. As a result, I concluded that the metal plate under the feeders was interfering with the remote control signal. It does not appear that there is support for this product. I attempted to contact the seller through whom I purchased it, but he was only willing to offer a refund, not to help find a solution to the problem. As an experienced user of this product, I did hours and hours of investigating information on the internet to help fix the issues. My search for another feeder remote ended up being fruitless because I could not find one at an affordable price. This made me want to find out what was wrong and fix it. I just want to share my thoughts. I hope this helps some of the other people out there who have felt the same frustration as I did!.
While the price is a bit higher than other well known remotes such as "wildgame innovations" or "moultrie" this is by far the better product
We were using the wildgame innovations units which would only last a month or two before they would disappear. We confirmed it was not a feeder malfunction. The feeder has had this for several years and it works like a charm. Also you should check out the "the timer" units, they are expensive, but they are great products.

A good complement to "The Timer" and an All Seasons 600 lb stand and fill broadcast feeder, this thing is perfect
I put the feeder in my blind about 100 yards away and it is very effective. One of the first things I did on opening morning was catch a 10 pointer from the feeder. My remote spooked him when he ran off, and I triggered the feeder to catch him. The remote is the reason for all this. There is no way to overstate how highly I recommend it.

It is a very good product
I have several of these on the deer feeders I have. I have not encountered any problems since I started using it. It would be nice if they had a better antenna on the receiver to facilitate reliable long distance communication. The antennas have been changed to a retractable RC car antenna, so they now provide reliable 500 yard line of sight.

I use it in conjunction with 'THE TIMER' - it works great There is a specific interface for this product
In the case where you already have 'The Timer' (see the photo), then you can easily add this remote to it. In addition to these, you may have other timers like Moultry, WildGame Innovation, and the like. When that happens, things get much more difficult. I have so much fun working with this remote control! It is so important that I would even go as far as to suggest you replace My grades were excellent on all 4 of my units and I am very satisfied with my grades.

The best new gadget I've ever seen! I feel like I've made the best hunting investment in years with this thing
I use it every time and it works like a charm. Installing the product is easy since the instructions are clearly written and easy to understand. The installation process is very straightforward if you already have The Timer. The video does not need to be spliced. A hole must be drilled in the bottom of the Then screw the retaining nut on from the outside, insert the antenna through the hole, and plug the signal cable into the harness of The Timer, between The Timer and the motor (color-coded). The battery terminals need to be connected to the power leads. Plug in the supplied battery into the remote control and you're ready to use it! After installing it, it took me no more than two minutes. If you'd like to have the ability to stir the feed when you want (not just during programmed feedings), you should pick up this handy tool. Your decision will not be regrettable.

WORKS DONE FROM A DISTANCE You should change your battery at least once a season
I have been using THE REMOTE for the 3rd year on my deer feeder and it has yet to fail me. It would be best if you replaced your remote's battery to ensure it maintains its signal. When you cannot activate the feeder, you might find that this will help.

Satisfied to the fullest extent
The unit arrived on time. It was easy to set Our feeder has a great view of it, so I attached it to that. Around 91 yards from the window in the kitchen. Towards the end of the second hour after installing it, a group of whitetail deer and about 20 turkey hens appeared. As soon as I pressed the button, it worked perfectly.
