Help with Satellite Hookup
Our new 2014 Windjammer does not come with a satellite dome/dish or whatever they call the things on the roof. Our dealer told us we could it one installed for $1,400.00+. We're not wanting to spend that much to have the option to watch satellite programming in our RV. I called DirecTV, which is our home provider and was told that we couldn't use one of the receivers we currently have because of the type of Receivers (Whole Home Genie) we have in our house. He said I could buy a standard receiver for $69.95 and purchase a portable 18" dish and a tripod for approx. $150.00 to place at our campsite. All I pay monthly is $6.00 for the additional receiver. I was told that we would need to adjust/search for a signal whenever we set it up. Does anyone use this portable system? If so, what are the pros/cons? Is is something that we can install ourselves once we get the receiver and equipment in or do we need a professional technician? Once installed is it an easy set up at the campsite? Any info. would be so much appreciated! Thank you!
