Thanks to all you folks. After a about a month of fighting with our outside antenna, gave up. It was time to switch at our brick and mortar home (cable company charges went WAY up) and switch to Dish. Did so knowing that we could do so and that Dish antennas in our non-brick and mortar home would cost less with fairly easy use.

Heading south in 2 weeks, looking forward to great TV finally.

Thanks to all again.

Just info: have DISH. Use Winegard Pathways x2 fully automatic antenna matched to 2, 211z receivers. When stopping overnight and no cable, I try antenna for locals first before calling DISH. When I do call, I ALWAYS request an advanced support tech familiar with RV's. Sometimes they lie and say they can help, BUT, after 15 seconds, I ask for their supervisor.
IF you get the right person, you will have local channels in 15 minutes. WRONG person, forever on the phone and a crap shoot if you will ever get a local.
I have had Dish for 4+ years and they HAVE IMPROVED in 2014. More RV folks are using them. Knowledge is power!! Pay as you go programs have helped the knowledge curve improve faster. For us, it is the best alternative to campground cable out there!

Turbs - I am an old techno geek. Until I had the Dish system installed I didn't realize how far behind the Cable companies have fallen (at least Time Warner). I cannot think of much else I'd want a satellite or cable company to be able to do. The Dish Anywhere app is freaky good. TWC had a similar app that allowed you to have such winners as BBC or Sky News. Anyways, making the decision in hindsight is a no brainer. Now for $7 per month while traveling I will have all my channels (locals will be new local) throughout my coach. A real no brainer.

I love the dish anywhere app!
If I'm away from home and see a program I'd like to watch I can get on the app and record it!

Turns can a hopper and joeys work in a motorhome. Dish has said they would not work. I have a king dome in motion sat with two 211 receivers. Not to tech savvy with this.
