Well, I got a d-12 off e-bay for $30, called directv and they verified it was a good usable receiver. They are sending me a card for $20, will charge $6.50 a month more, and I can suspend and re activate whenever I want. So, for $150 plus $6.50 a month, I will be able to watch the same channels I have at home on the road. Also have a nice antennae I put on last year for local channels. Will probably use a BNC switch box to control all of this? Getting close to time to Leave for New Mexico, Farmington rally, so need to give the old girl a last clean and polish and finish building the new air hitch. Thanks to all of you for the timely information! Rolland

Just a update-Back home after 3 weeks on the road-The Directv worked great, ended up using a 140w inverter on the receiver when boondocking so didn't need to run the generator. Finding the satellite was easier than I hoped. Did not need to add a switch box, the antenna, dish, and cable worked well together routed through the Winegard box and the receiver. Happy camper!
