If you intend to use the DVR in the trailer or the boat keep in mind that it requires a "splitter" between the antenna and the DVR and then 2 leads from the splitter to the DVR. That would want to be a fixed installation just for the ease of set up when you are using the trailer or boat. The splitter and second cable to the DVR are part of the normal DVR installation. Get it clear before they come as to what the second one will cost if any.
As for the "pause of service" I would ask for that in writting. Years ago Directv was a company that you could talk to, however now it is almost impossible to get to anyone of authority when you have a problem.
