    We have an extra dish receiver we would like to put in our 303. Would like an auto antenna. Any suggestions?

    The Tailgater works well with Dish.
    We use a Winegard Carry- out and it is just fine.

    We purchased a carry out Winegard PATHWAY X2 from Camping World. We have 2 receivers connected to it and it works very well.

    I second the Winegard Pathway X2. It can pick up both the east and west coast feeds. Pair it with a VIP211Z receiver and you're good to go. It works on Dish only though.

    Here's a package deal on Amazon for $456.87 which includes the X2 and the receiver.

    If you'd like a second receiver for the bedroom, it can be purchased separately.

    I'd also recommend the little tripod to mount your antenna on. Here's a link:

    Any updated suggestions for a satellite antenna? Portable unit.. Lots of tech advances in the last couple of years, looking to see if anyone has any experience with some of the new ones on the market or recommendations...Thanks

    I've been using a Wingard Pathway X2. No problems in 4 years. Same VIP 211 as well. I added a portable hard drive for recording and pausing.
    All has worked great. Only one drawback and thats the size of it. But thats the good part as well. It has a larger dish so it holds the sig better in inclement weather.
    Only thing I would change is my receiver. I'd opt for the new Wally.
    We use ours almost every time we set up so it's been well tested.

    Wine guard Pathway X2 and a DISH Wally. Works well. On some trailers you have to hook the satellite directly to the box. Some cable hookups through the trailer will not work. Luck of the draw. If we do not use it for a while sometimes it needs a hard reboot. DISH reps have been helpful. Billing can be a little confusing depending on who you speak with. If you do not use the whole month of service , suspend it and they keep your leftover days for when you restart your service. Some times the rep wants you to have a least a month in the bank and other will start it back up with less than a month left. Luck of the draw.. App for smart phone. SATFINDERLITE. Hold your phone up facing south and it shows where the satellites are. Helpful when trees are in the way. Satellite TV and camping !! Who would have thought ??

    I use Dish Pointer Pro to find Sats through trees or ?
    You can use the MyDish app to reactivate your Dish. Only takes a few mins. Last time I called Dish to reactivate the tech guy informed that it would be way faster to use the app. He was right.
