TV Optionsfor Coachmen 246rks

Since we haven't been able to successfully get our antenna situation to resolve, I am thinking about adding some other option. Maybe Dish or whatever. Can someone tell me their experience with adding some other option? Thank you.

Do you have a Dish or DirecTV receiver at the house already? I think you can buy a 2nd "dish" and tripod stand and take it on the road with you. They have apps to help align it. I've not done this, but I've seen a number of posts where people have.

As I understand it, if you are keeping your service at the house, and just taking it on the road occasionally, you don't have to sign up for a separate RV account. But if you don't have a permanent home address (ie, full timer), they want an RV account.

I may consider this once I get all the upgrades done to our 246RKS. I know that the fixed TV antenna is not a good solution "as is", and we have DirecTV. I'll be watching to see what you decided to do also.

I don't know anything about this company, but I found several "kits" in a google search. This company had several kits for Dish and DirecTV ranging from $59 to $130 for the manual aim setups.

We also stream off an unlimited data plan to rokus attached to each tv. Works well as long as you have a good cell signal.
