On line chat is worse than a live operator. True story, the last time a Dish tech was at our place, he said if you can tell the conversation with the operator on the phone isn't going your way, hang up. Then, immediately call back and try again to talk to someone who understands what you're trying to do.

If you want to keep your locals at home while traveling, then don't change the locals. Use your antenna for locals. If you travel out of your home service area a lot then maybe set up a separate pay as you go account for the RV.

Notice you have Tundra,
Wife and myself recently retired, about to pull the trigger on 3029W Windjammer, do you feel confident that our 2014 Tundra 1794 Edition CrewMax 4 x 4 with 5.7 will handle it adequately.

Any response appreciated.

We like DISH and have used them for several years. While RVing we've found that whatever we are told on the phone is rarely true. Our billing address is almost always changed everytime we camp. (Have to call them to get it changed to our residence)
We've been told several things about local channels where we camp. One time they sent a "signal" to where we were camping. We got the local channels for that campsite area and we also were still able to get our local channels from our residence. When we got home we had the same channels until we called to have our service (and billing address) switched back to our residence.
I've never been able to figure out why they would change your billing address when you tell them you are in your RV for a week or so.
Anyway, DISH has a nice satellite finder app that is easy to use so I can see if my Tailgator has a clear line of sight to those satellites.
With DISH our bill has always been the same each month. When we had Direct, it changed nearly every month for various reasons that didn't make a lot of sense.
