Works great until you get a thunderstorm in the area (and typical thunderstorms are not all that sever up here in MA). Once the lightening starts, the unit seems to be too sensitive and the unit is toast in no time.
I have replaced two in about 1.5 years.....
If I can find a better designed transmitter I will switch.
Thank you for your comments. All dog fence transmitters are subject to damage due to lightning. There are only two ways to prevent lightning damage: Either disconnect the boundary wire from the transmitter which is not always possible. Or the best way is to have one of our Lightning Protection Modules -http://www.radiofence.com/petsafe-pet-fence-lightning-protection/
With this module, your transmitter will be protected from lightning.

Bought this hoping to replace my old RF-104, another person had commented that it would work, and it does! Works good, and a good price.

This was a perfect replacement for our old transmitter that got zapped. Works great. Also bought the surge protector to help with future electrical spikes.

Overall a good replacement transmitter.
The quality has gone down a bit on these in the past years, but it works ok. Had to tune it a little big higher to make it work on some areas.

Will buy nothing but petsafe products. 7 acres, 4 dogs. Replacement necessary due to low lightening strike. Not problems replacing. Well worth money

our unit has worked well. we have 3/4 ac.fenced in. we have 5 dogs running in our yard. it burned out and the replacement cost is about $100.00. a lot of money for elder persons on SS.

I purchased the Deluxe Dog Fence Transmitter to replace a 1994 model Deluxe Model Radio Fence transmitter box that got short circuited during a bad lightning storm. It was an easy fix since I was able to use the existing wire loop (about 1200' of wire). All our old Radio Fence and PetSafe collars work with the new unit. A nice feature of the new transmitter is that it will beep to alert you when the loop circuit is broken. The old transmitter required you to check the loop circuit lights on the housing, so I am sure sometimes we went several days without knowing our fence was down. The peace of mind we get from not having to worry about our dog roaming away is well worth the price of this product. He is happy to have 2 acres to run around in - instead of a small penned area and the neighbors love to see him sitting 3 feet from our property line

Ran wire around 17 acres. This transmitter works great keeping my 2 large, stubborn dogs on our property. Never have to worry about them straying any more. Just bought this second transmitter to keep them out of the greenhouse. Have been thrilled with the performance for over 2 years. Lightning protection is a must. Replaced 2 transmitters early on, but haven't had any problems since. I still unplug everything before storms when we are home, but are gone a lot and can't do it every time. I appreciate the fact any time I order it comes correctly and very quickly. LOVE the new staples to keep above ground wire secure. Put out 200 of them in no time in our sandy, Florida soil. Thanks PetSafe and RadioFence!

We owned our first transmitter for a little over a year but did not have the surge protector on the fence wire. One bad storm later we had to replace the transmitter. This is a great product but make sure you by the $20 surge protector so you don't have to by another $100 transmitter.
