Upgrading Dish from a 211Z


Recommended Posts

We have recently added a Wingard Trav'ler to our 5th wheel and are very please with it. I wanted to get a better reciever for when we use the trailer and contacted Dish to get something like a 722. They said the only reciever that would work was the 211 and I think they do not know what they are talking about.

 

 

We don't use the trailer enough to justify another Hopper (which we have at home) so what are some of the alternatives?

 

 

TIA

I have a Hopper/Sling at the house, Dish said this would not work in a RV why wouldn't it?

 

A Hopper will work fine in an RV with a Winegard Travler.

 

Just use the Hopper from your house in your RV -- as long as it's not a Hopper 3.

I am currently using a Dish Network supplied Hopper3 using a Dish 1000.2 with a EA Hybrid mounted on a tripod. Works great!

 

Yes, I know, but since OP just bought his Travler, he probably doesn't want to invalidate his warranty. Besides, OP has a Hopper with Sling.

Dish does not support using a Hopper in an RV, but that does not mean it won't work. They are of the opinion that any receiver with a hard drive is not suited to RV use, but too many of us are doing just that to be concerned about it. Your Hopper will work fine with the Trav'ler, just don't forget to install a Solo Node with it.

Hopper, Joey, Solo Node, Winegard Sk-1000

Installed all myself. Once installed, with 2 cables run from Tap to Living room and another to bedroom. Call a Dish installed (Found on web in the area we were at). Explained what I wanted (Hopper, Joey), said all was done only needed the 2 items installed. Came out installed the 2 boxes Said his was the easiest he had done.

 

As for warranty? don't know what you are talking about. Bought Dish service equipment, no problem. Even had a service call one time.
