New classic ultra lite putting Satellite in

This is my wife and I's first TT. we are excited to say the least. First trip this past weekend was a success and learned lots of valuable information. My wife wants to put dish network in. I have been doing my research but was more wondering about how the trailer is wired via coax and how well these traveler unit from dish work? any tips, tricks or info I must know?

welp its done

Just got done installing or basically purchasing a dish network weekender package and it is simple as can be to hook up and get running. Love being able to now watch the football games or put a movie on if the weather isn't optimum. Dish was very easy to work with during the initial start up and I've used it a couple times already just to get the hang of it. watched the TN/Alabama game this past weekend with lots of friends, a good fire, and food all from the luxury of the TT.

I opted for the manual dish instead of the automated, but still is no big deal what so ever to find signal and get TV up and going. The dish, the tripod and the receiver was around $300. so not to bad. I like to get away from it all as much as anyone but I still like to the luxury of having tv for the kids and ball games.

I have dish network at home already, so it cost me $7 a month added to my bill.

Direct charges only $6 per month, but I leave mine 'on' as I'm lucky enough to store at home and plugged in.
