    There are many threads here concerning RV setups.
    Basically, your customer needs a dish and a receiver.
    We here would need more info about particular customer needs.

    Too many variables.
    Need an idea re dish/lnb used : receiver(model/sd/hd) : dish alignment aid ( meter/ receiver /SWM?).

    Nothing to "fit all"

    he is using mper 4 hd receivers, slim line kaku3 lnb. just basically how he would go about peaking it in he only need to hit the 101 in my market you have to have mpeg 4 and he is a non hd user. i tried to show him but i think a "how to" paper would be great

    Where is "your market"? If you're in an area that requires MPEG4 to receive local channels, then you can't get by with just receiving the 101º satellite, you'll need 99 & 103º, too.

    You might want to refer them to the installation instructions and videos available here ....

    Encourage them to practice at home before heading out in the RV. This can be a tricky dish to align if they've never done one before.

    If he only cares for National channels, and he's not an HD customer, then the 18" round single-LNB dish is the way to go. Smaller, and much easier to aim/align.
