Question on Updating my RV to HR-34

Or you *might* be able to swap that dish's LNB assembly with a SWM LNB assembly. Not sure, though. Other's here may know for sure. You would still need a power inserter and compatible SWM splitters.

I'm not sure that the SK3005 can be converted to SWM using an external SWM-8. That would need four cables from the dish to work. I've done this with a Motosat but never with a Winegard.
Winegard does now sell a SWM version of this dish (the SK-SWM3), which would be the way to go if the budget allows.

I think a better question is if I take all four lines from the SK-3005 and load them into a SWM-8 can I them install a HR-34 and make it work.
Yes you can!
