Not sure if this is the right forum. First post here. But..... I want to make available Dish Network to my 5th wheel when we travel. Seems many, many ways to do this. Have Dish at home. When they changed us over to a Hopper with 2 Joey boxes for the other two TV locations, they left the two VIP 612 DVR boxes. As I want to begin this 5th wheel setup as low cost as possible and maybe go to a Traveler later, I was wondering if there is a way to use the two VIP 612 boxes with an external mounted antenna on a tripod - might have one of those laying around in the barn. Unfortunately, they seem to use phone connections for activation and all, plus, I was not sure how much the service might cost on a temporary basis. I've not yet called Dish about this because we were at first thinking of getting one of the small portable setups (Tailgater, Playmaker, Carryout, Pathway, etc) and two Wally boxes. Any response or suggestions would be appreciated.
