How it works:
The portable and lightweight DISH Tailgater is easy to carry and easy to set up. Simply connect the Tailgater to the Wally DISH receiver (included with bundle) to power the antenna and transmit the HD video and audio signal to your receiver. Then, connect the satellite receiver to your TV with the included 35 feet of coax cable. (You will need access to 110v AC or a power inverter to power the Wally receiver and TV.)
Once powered on, simply follow the easy on-screen instructions. The Tailgater will automatically locate the DISH satellites, delivering access to HD channels in just minutes. If you are watching TV from your vehicle for more than a few hours, periodically run your vehicle to maintain battery life. For extended use, a portable power generator, power pack, or alternative accessory battery is recommended.

Is working perfectly. I'm using it with my RV, and it's nice to have my dish network wherever I travel.
Cumbersome tech support but works well as advertised
Once you establish a clear, line of sight signal from the satellites, it works well. Seems to need a very clear and totally unobstructed 'view' of satellites; even a single tree branch can interrupt signal. Contacting tech support is somewhat cumbersome via their automated phone prompts. Like that it works fine through our RV's built-in cable system. Would definitely buy again and recommend it.
Bought this for our camp. Great to have. No problem installing
Great option for outdoor people
Sets up within 10 minutes. No problems with receiving a signal. I use it for tailgating at football games. Pay as you option is a great feature. As a former truck driver wish I had it then. Great option if you drive for a company that wouldn't allow a permanent dish setup. Probably would work well RVing if you dont like to deal a bulky dish and stand. Very light weight.
Easy to set up, however Dish programming is not what I expected.
Cannot get Fox sports Southwest and one reason I bought the satellite dish
