Winegard Trav'ler dish for Shaw Direct

Just installed this on the motorhome and wonder if any one has figured out how to get a different signal into the bedroom to watch a differenet program. I realize it will take another reciever to do this. Our unit is a 2011 360DS.

Ok today I was able to spend time with the new dish..it works great. I found out that the sat position on the switch above the windshield does not pump signal to the tv in the bedroom. So, I disconected the cable from the Cable connection and screwed the sat dish co ox to this and presto,,,sat dish on both tv's...now I have to run another line for the second receiver in the bedroom so we can watch different programs on both tv's while on sat...any one ever done this.???

I was wondering just how good the Wingard dish is? Also if you are parked under trees can you still get a signal?

Personally, I hate parking under trees as they always drop crap on the roof and onto the awnings. Under trees would not be a problem as long as the path to the sat is not blocked. The dish is awesome and it finds the sat and fine tunes perfectly..takes about 3 min. to go through the process. You can read the operating instructions for it on the Winegard site.

I was going to install myself. The instructions that come with the unit are very good. However, Winegard Warranty (2 years parts, one year labor) will apply unless you have a Winegard Certified installer do the work. So, I had a dealer do it. Winegard lists the dealers online on their website. So that said all included with tax and labor and shop supplies etc came to $2900.00.
