    There's a lot of RV'ers are on pay-as-you-go not because they're struggling, but because they only want the service part time. That's how we first started with Dish before we became full time RV'ers, and we've seen no reason to change it even though we don't turn the service off anymore.

    That's true but those are not very common accounts, as compared to low credit accounts

    I couldn't even get them to schedule a tech visit after four calls to tech support about Hopper and Joey issues. I finally had to call a local retailer to come out and fix it. Dish was no help at all.

    IMHO if you have a good local retailer you should always call them first, especially for the initial install. :)
