Dish for my RV

Does anyone use https://www.dishformyrv.com/ ?? We are possibly looking into a pay as you use service . .

Do you just hook the co axle cable directly to the cable IN port ??

I have used my Dish account with my Redwood for nearly 6 years. When I purchased my RW, I had a RoadTrip Mini-Max dish mounted on the roof. The dealer technician cabled the dish into the area behind the TV. I purchased a Dish 211 receiver and added it onto my home account (Dish Top 250) for $7. per month. I receive the same programming on that receiver as my home receiver. It has worked well everywhere from Florida to Washington State. The only issue I have had is that with the roof mounted dish, there have been a few times where trees blocked the signal. Some folks use a portable dish so they can move it around to get a signal. My longest stay has been in Florida and where we go, I have a clear view of the sky so the roof mounted dish works well.

We have been using the Pathway X2 dish and works great. You can only get 1 satellite at a time. You can hook 2 dvr's to it but they have to use the same satellite. Ours hooks up to the satellite connection. We have to connectors, 1 is labeled satellite and the other cable. We have a Wally with an external hard drive to use as a dvr. Like Guy, we have the $7 added to our home account for channels instead of the pay as you go. With our portable, we just connect the cable and set it down, it does everything else. There is no separate power cord.

We have been using the large oval portable dish network dish for over 2 years. Connect the cable from the dish to the left(looking at them) sat connection in the convenience center and use the cable without tape on it in the entertainment center to connect to the receiver.

Just yesterday I put a Winegard Trav'ler for Dish on the roof. Had to change to the cable with 2 rounds of tape to connect to the receiver.

Haven't used that site for anything.
I log in to the dish web site each time we move and open an IM session with support to change the service address.

Ok we are getting close to making a decision on getting it or not. . I have 2 satellite connections in my convenience center, can I ASSUME 1 goes to the entertainment center, and 1 to the bedroom ?
Also, there seems to be a few orange cables, should I ASSUME that 1 is for the feed from the roof, and 1 for the feed from the convenience center?

And someone touched on something over on another forum . . . Security for the portables... do you lock them to something ?

What is this wire?

This wire is in the cabinet in my bedroom, it comes from the ceiling right next to the cable jack.. I did found the front connector of the jack is the satellite feed in...

That looks like the preinstalled control cable for the Winegard Travel'r antenna many have installed on the Redwood's roof. The other end is underneath the round plate just in front and to the door side of the rear ac/heat pump. It plugs into the Winegard control box that turns on and off the dish and aims it at the satellites.
