In 2014, we purchased a 2011 Georgetown 337DS XL (33') motorhome. We are the second owners of the motorhome.
The RV came with a Winegard RV roof mounted satellite TV antenna set up for DISH. Until recently, we never gave the Winegard satellite TV a thought. We did not subscribe to satellite TV at home. We never thought about having satellite TV in the RV.
Life changed yesterday. We decided to drop cable TV at home and replace it with DISH satellite TV. As part of the transition, we decided to set up the satellite system installed on the roof of the RV to work with DISH. We were in luck. It was already wired and ready to go. DISH installed a RV 211 receiver, hooked everything up, and it worked like a champ!!!!
Today, we returned the RV to where we park it. The last step in closing up the RV for temporary storage was to turn off the house power in order to not drain the house batteries.
At the moment that we turned off the house batteries, we wondered whether the "downloaded software and setup" of the receiver was stored in the RV 211 receiver. We assumed that if this is not the case, that the next time we turn on the RV 211 receiver, we will have to go through the Winegard receiver doing it's "find the satellite" process and then re-download and install software again. Hopefully not. If yes...bummer!
Have any of you gone through this process? When we turned off the "house power" in the RV did the Winegard server lose its mind?
Your comments will be greatly appreciated.
