After suffering through all that you quickly find out you need a CSA that understands the process. I talked to several agents and was guided by forum posts on exactly what to ask.

The really cost effective thing to do is drop cable and get satellite. Taking you satellite box along from home is too simple and realistically much cheaper...

We have Direct TV at home and just recently purchased two standard receivers from Direct for the 5th wheel. We already have a Direct TV dish set on a tripod and I spent last Saturday running another cable from the entertainment center to the bedroom for the second receiver. With Direct, it's only another $6.00 each for the two receivers per month.

receiver and ant are 499.
looks like they will allow u to start and stop service w/o penalty. didn't look at the fine print though.
