From what I've determined (from reviewing previous owner receipts) we have a Trav'ler SK-3005 DirecTV Slimline and need the Dish SK-1000 to use our Dish home receiver. I haven't gotten on top to check out the antenna system, since first doing the RV check out before buying, so I'm not certain what would be required to swap the parts, but I'm guessing it wouldn't take much - probably a few machine screws and nuts to remove the reflector and LNBs and arm, possibly as a whole assembly. The cable(s) just unscrew from the back of the LNBs. Let me know if you are might be interested in swapping - no hurry on our part as it will be a while (this summer) before we move into the rig.

Ok Steve, I'll let you know. I like your signature, I also have an older tow truck. Its a 97 F350 dually that has a lot of mods and tows my DRV very well. I get asked all the time in campgrounds why I use a 20 year old truck. I just say that I can work on it, the new ones forget it!

Thanks Glenn. Being able to work on the truck, when necessary (which isn't very often), is just one of several reasons I still have and use it. I concur about working on the new ones.

Thank you,

I have been with Dish for 14 years but I'm only looking into my options at this point. My antenna is only two years old so I'm thinking it has the latest stuff. What I'm doing is looking into getting rid of Sprint (worthless data roaming policy) and thinking about AT&T because they have towers where I go. If I switch to them they also own Directv and will give a discount if I switch to them. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet.
Ok I am A ATT customer for about 15 years and I made the switch from Dish to Direct and it was a bad move Direct is not better and there price is only good for a year then it like doubles and you have a contract that cost you 20 or 25 a month if you leave early. The only channel I get that Dish does not carry is OAN, I like Dish because you can down load your copied shows and movies on to a hard drive, Direct you have to have your system and your laptop set up VIA internet so you can transfer to your laptop or home system.

I am going back to Dish as soon as I can .
