I guess I need to take a deep breath and relax a little. Just yesterday I was thinking of cancelling Dish. We spend maybe 30+ nights a year in the 5th wheel and I have to call Dish and tell them where I am and they walk me through the process. Most campgrounds have decent cable and they have trees. We have a one-week trip planned for October. Think I'll keep dish and give it another try. Maybe I'll time the process....it may not take as long as I think. Thanks, Jerry

Many, many threads on here comparing Dish to DirecTV...
Do you have to buy anything else besides the remote for it to work?

Have seen that Dish has a set up where you can get the Auto dish and receiver for your Rv, also able to pay for only the days used. Has anyone signed up for this program??

NO... std remotes work on infrared lights beams that don't go around corners well
the RF remotes work on radio waves that pierce walls...

I learned the hard way that you can't mix and match remotes... bought an RF for the wife so she could change stations from the basement (have second TV downstairs on the same output), but then the upstairs remote did not work... there is a setting in the SETUP functions of the receiver that lets you specify either type of remote, but both will not work at the same time... had to purchase a second RF remote for upstairs... but they do work well...

If you have a good friend that has direct tv,ask them to get a extra box and use their account.I pay my son 120 dollars a year.you can pick up a dish and LNB for next to nothing.or you can buy a dish and tripod on ebay or amazon.I been useing this for 8 years.in winter, I use it inside.you have to keep the box activated because it is updated 24-7

I tell the dish network the kids got grounded and took the receiver. Usually hear some chuckle and they are happy to prevent the cruel and unusual punishment. Hmm. I was seventeen with a broken back and legs after a wreck before a TV allowed in the house. Guess it's like drinking out of a garden hose.

We have used both. Be aware that if you get a Tailgater it system specific. But there is another model satellite, I believe it's called a King, that will do Direct TV or Dish. And we prefer Dish!
