I have had a DISH Tailgater since 2007 and have never had a problem with anyone bothering it...even when I would place it on the ground...but then again we don't RV in parks that are sketchy.

I have a winguard Carry out since the were introduced and never had a problem because i choose camping where there's minimal risk while avoiding ones that are in run down areas. Crime seems be more prevelant in those places.

I have 5 of these I use for bikes, Kayak, BBQ and Satellite. Cheap and reliable battery is good for 5-6 months before recharge. Only $15

Never had a satellite dish stolen, but actually had one of the wheel hocks that you use a 3/4" wrench to install between two tires! Don't know what time of the day or night it happened, but when we went to hook up the truck to leave the wheel chock was gone! They left the one on the other side!

Can they use it?

I think, please correct me if I'm wrong but I think the dish is linked to your reciever so if stolen it can't be used. Most people in an rv park would know that so won't steal it. Boondocking is where I would be concerned. We have never had a problem and have left it on the ground unsecured many times. Anything can get stolen though. We do what we can.

Your received is registered in your account but not the antenna. There is nothing from the Dish side that stops a stolen antenna from being used.

I use a 20ft dog tie out cable with a padlock at each end. One goes thru the satellite handle the other around the trailer jack. Have never had any attempts before anyone.

I have just eliminated Dish cable from my budget and will use FireStick with hotspots for my TV.

SO. I have a good Tailgater satellite, 211 receiver, and 25ft. Good coax cable to get rid of. Anyone interested I am in the Dallas TX area.

Same story here in Upstate NY. I have the KING VQ4500R Tailgater w/two Wally rcvr's, remotes and Netgear WiFi adaptors. Cables included. If anyone is interested. All offers welcomed.

I just found all the splitters in the RV were too much of a hassle and we use the Fire Stick at home. So we just use that now.
