Winegards new Traveler Dish for Direct

We had our single LNB Road Trip dome replaced with the new Traveler that CW is selling. Ours is the 5 LNB DirecTv dish and it was an easy install (CW did it). So Far works great and the HD is spot on.
It raises and locks on with one button, actually lower than our Road trip when it is stowed. Only drawback is that it does not have an auto docking function. You must turn off and allow time for it to stow before you pull AC, otherwise it will stop in motion. Set up one time at each location and leave on. No need to enter zip or anything else. Of course, it is still limited by line of sight to the southern sky and excessive rain will cause it fits. I will still carry our portable dish for those times when an obstruction is in play....Gotta have my TV........DW wouldn't be without it......

BTW: It is capable of running three TV's with appropriate receivers...

Phil,

Would you mind posting a "ball park" figure for this process? It might help some of more $$$$ challenged folks to decide what we need to do before Feb. of 09.

Thanks,

Dennis

Dennis the dish listed for $2110, but on sale for $1699. Install was $249.30 and miscellaneous parts and supplies were $24.00. It has a two year parts and one year labor warranty and the extended warranty, for two additional years, was $389.99.
Pricey, to say the least, but not having to deal with the portadish is nice. Not for everyone but works for us.

boat391 - Your Local stations are good for about a 150-200 mile radius of your home. You can get DNS - Distant Network Stations with your RV license registration - about $12 per month. The have east coast Atlanta stations and west coast San Francisco stations. You can get DNS stations anywhere you go.

Since I have NO stationary home, I do not get any local channels with Direct. I do, however, get the east and west coast feeds, as they call them. These are the national networks, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox. They are out of New York and LA. If I want locals I can turn sat off and use batwing or CG Cable....

now I am more confused than ever all we want is the network channels too is this a seperate package? don't really need so called locals just network coverage while on the road is the DNS only available on direct? Dish acts like they don't care too much about RV'ers

Go to All American Direct - https://www.mydistantnetworks.com/ They will explain everything you need to know about the RV waiver for the Distant Network Stations for DishNetwork. This a third party provider for DishNetwork. It is totally separate from your DishNetwork bill.
