So I get Dish installed at my house and I ask the guy installing about it and he tells me that there is no way to get channels by just hooking a Dish receiver up to the roof mounted antennae. Basically, he tells me to contact Dish and tell them that I'm moving to the address that my camper is at and they will set you up for free for 2 moves a year. So I tell them I'm moving and they come out and set up a Dish and receiver at my camper and I pay the extra $7/month for the extra receiver. My RV park is only open half the year so I was hoping to not spend money on something that is not being used that whole time. I'm also not thrilled about unhooking and hooking up my home receiver every time I go to the camper and having to readjust settings each time. Is there a cheaper way to do this? Can you use the antennae or not? What is everyone else doing? Thanks!!
Should have bought the tailgater package from dishnetwork
It's designed for camping.
Your dish guy isn't very knowledgeable to not have known this.
You can start and stop service at any time.
Downside ? You have to buy receiver and auto-matic dish.
$350.00 I believe.
