Before starting our full-time adventure, there were a number of things we thought should be done to our motorhome:

  1. Tom,

    Please point me in a direction if you would be so kind.

    Converted my Traveler to Dish. Purchased & installed the Hopper 3, DPH42 & Hybrid Node per the latest diagram. Turned everything on and the dish Install-Test Installation stalls at “Acquiring Satellite Signals”. The Winegard screen shows LG Dish 1000 *119 *110 *129.

    Dish Outdoor (PACE Ind) says Hopper 3 won’t work with Traveler. Outdoor Dish can’t help with Hoppers because they’re not trained on them. Working with Dish Residental and they want to send a tech out to check the dish. Bet they won’t be any help with the Winegard.

    • When you say “converted my Travler to Dish”, what do you mean?

      Find a local installer, because Dish Outdoor is over their head. You can use an off-the-shelf Travler as long as you also use a DPH42 switch like so:

      • I found the issue. The power inserter is shown wired backwards on the diagram. The DPH42 Install Manual shows it right. Thanks

      • Thanks for the heads up. I’ll fix it.
