For those who are "moved", what's the total amount of time time your service address was your actual address?

And before you say it, yes I know I posted a lot of "moved" threads lately. Anyways you can only count the total amount of time your service address was your actual address THIS TIME you had Dish. So if you had Dish before, left, and came back, previous times don't count. Anyways, I'm thinking I go everyone beat, a maximum of three hours I had my true locals this time. This time I had Dish I had it since July 2018. I "moved" immediately when the tech drove away, and several months later I was on the phone with Dish and Dish had it mislabeled that I would get National PBS in my locals. (Looking at the online guide I now know it was an error.). Anyways, I did a bunch of other things before to try to fix it but they didn't work, so later I tried one last thing. Although the first Dish tech I talked to didn't do it, I called again and talked to a different tech and told him what previously happened and said I wanted to try one last thing. I told him to change my locals then immediately change them back by the steps I about to say. I told him to change the address to my billing address, then I told him to change it back to my "actual address" (even though it wasn't my actual address but my "moved" address). Anyways, no luck on getting National PBS, but with the online guide from ondishguide.com I know it's not in my lineup. Since then I have had my service address always at my "moved" address. So I only had my actual address as my service address on two different days, but at a maximum of three hours total (but probably less than that).

On another note, if you you think somehow it's a copout not to include the previous time I had Dish, that time I had my actual service address just a couple weeks over a year. One reason was because I never heard of "moving" prior, and also since I didn't have an antenna most of that year, and two really lousy Lava antennas until a couple weeks before I "moved" and got a decent antenna.

Yes I know I "wrote a book" here.

Where our wheels go
Our Dish service address has never been our billing address. As a mobile fulltime RV'er, our billing address is a mail forwarding service that collects our mail and forwards it to us in bulk on request.
