  1. Here is a news flash.....Dish and Directv might be merging! I recently read the FCC would not object to the merger. It may be up to DOJ now to decide next.
  2. Lorine, they work! I use the Wilson Weboost 4G kit. You can buy Wilson off Amazon or direct from Wilson (www.wilsonsignalbooster.com). I would reccomend you buy one and set it up without permanently mounting it to test it out. You can place the antenna outside and temporarily run the coax cable through a window or slide seal. After testing it, you can mount it permanently. There are several types/models of boosters. Some are only good while stationary, others are good going down the road. Good luck!
  3. Satellites have about a 15 year life span. Directv last launched "Directv 15" in 2015 and "Directv 14" in 2014. So, they could have sat coverage until 2030 or later. I suspect they will always have satellite coverage for folks in rural areas who cannot get broadband internet from terrestrial providers.
  4. When I had Lazy Days setup my 2018 Explorer to tow behind my motorhome, they wired up my Explorer battery so it gets charged up by the alternator on the motorhome while going down the road. I didn't ask for it, they just did it for me. I have a battery cutoff switch/lever to pull to disconnect the battery from the electronics in the Explorer, but the battery still gets topped off by the motorhome.
  5. AT&T Communications CEO John Donovan announced in a conference call to investors that Directv will be moving its service to the streaming side of the house. They will not be buying any more satellites. How does this affect subscribers in rural areas that have no access to broadband internet? https://www.fiercevideo.com/cable/at-t-cfo-new-directv-service-will-be-self-installed-box-instead-truck-roll
  6. My wife and I own a 2016 Winnebago Adventurer 37F and a 2018 Ford Explorer 4x4 Platinum. We use Blue Ox tow equipment (Blue Ox BX2668 Base Plate, Blue Ox BX7420 Tow Bar, and the Blue Ox Patriot II Braking System inside the Explorer). The Explorer weighs about 4,200 lbs and the BX7420 is rated to 10,000 lbs.
