Ummm that would be a Cajun NEAUX. But since we can't always order up perfect weather, it's nice to be able to watch NASCAR or GOLF when it's raining outside.

Did your RV not come with at least one television?

No justification required.
Everyone camps in their own way for their own reasons.

is the only criteria. You define what that is...

Yup- just look back to my thread, "Who else doesn't 'camp'?" Lots of us travel and use the camper as a portable home/apartment.

To Ex GM - be careful with the judgements, we all have our own way and not one of us is right for everyone.

We have Dish at home and got a tailgater to use while we are in Florida for the winter. It is great. Sets up quickly and automatically. I paid a local dealer to install the tailgater and a receiver. Now, we can watch satellite or over the air (antenna), channels or, when available, cable. When we get home, we just call and deactivate the receiver.

I recently tried the Tailgater lost signal with rain clouds every time it clouded up signal strength was low 30s. Sent it back got the Winegard pathway x2 great signal strength over 50 works great in cloudy weather. Sorry but the tailgater is not worth it to me unless you camp in good weather IMHO.

OK, thanks.

Why the X2 and not X1??? Is X2 better??

Never mind, think I answered this one. X2 is bigger dish, more reception. I see.

Thanks.

Now my only question is where to buy. PPL in Houston is far cheapest place, plus a rebate!! But some questionable reviews of them. Dishformyrv is reliable, but more expensive. Called DISH, got India! Three times!!! UGH!

Ugh. Now new problem! Regardless of where I buy the equipment, how do I set up and activate a new DISH Pay As You Go account?

I called DISH (got INDIA), and was told I had to call Dishformyrv. I've already talked to them, they just sell equipment and couldn't advise me on the programming. PLUS, they are more expensive on the physical dish and receiver than I can find elsewhere.

Catch 22?

I keep reading how easy this is for some of you guys. If you aren't a DISH customer at home (which I'm not), how do you get this stuff bought cheaply AND initiated and working????? Who do you call? It ain't Ghostbusters.

I would call the normal Dish Network number and ask for the "RV " department . I've heard of normal csr's not knowing what their talking about. (Surprise, surprise.)

You had to go there about my Cubs. Don't you know that it is not easy supporting this mess for over a hundred years. (Not me, but I am part of the hundred)
