As long as you have a account at home, I wouldn't think they would have a problem turning off the extra receiver and eliminating the extra $7 per month, when you don't need it. Call and ask...

Like I said earlier I think they have a month to month plan, if you don't have a account that you want to keep active.

Look at the dish at your house and buy the same thing.
Ebay would be the best place for a used one.

Got a hold of a real person who knew something!-now if I can remember it. The difference between their normal plans and pay-as-you-go is you buy the equipment upfront instead of signing a 2yr contract- There is no contract and you can turn it on and off as you like with no fees. The same packages are available as normal Dish so you pick the one out you want call and activate.

I'd recommend buying a used receiver versus paying them full price.
But good job !

If you just use the one out of your house you can't turn it on and off without charges (pretty sure thats what she said)because it then becomes part of the contract -this is only good if you get the pay as you go plan which is setup for RVing-tailgating etc

Only drawback to all of this is finding a parking spot with shade for you and open sky for the dish to find satellite. We have an automatic carryout from Camping World, dumb thing requires you to plug in it's inverter to get 110 down to 12H so an outside plug in of either is necessary or modification to get cords inside. Fun just never ends eh?! With my busy hubby all we get time for is late evening and a DVD works for that.
