Actually my understanding is that Dish will repair/replace a defective receiver no matter who owns it. Let us know how it goes.

I hope you got the "single node" you'll need as well?

Sorry. Should have been Solo Node. I get that wrong way too often. See this diagram: http://www.winegard.com/kbase/upload...&%20Hopper.pdf

You can also use a Tap and a terminator (for the node client port) to avoid running two wires from inside the RV to the solo node.

My VIP722K is on lease from Dish (I don't own it), I run completely without a contract, and they DO know that it's in an RV full time.

Maybe I just got lucky with the support rep, but as long as I send the $$$ once a month (MOST important thing to them), I doubt they'd care if I ran over it with the coach!!! Well once anyhow..... repeat offenses might catch their attention!!!

Further, I'll bet those lease units are depreciated out within a year or so after first being placed, and if I ever cancelled and sent it back, it'd go in the scrap file. JMO; could be wrong.

Boowho??

I'd say so..... If you have no receiver, no matter WHO owns it, you'll not want to send that monthly stipend. Those stipends are what Dish lives for, don'tcha know??

Thanks for the diagram. I'll bring a solo node and splitter with me to CW in the spring for the install.
