I already have the max, 2 hoppers and 4 leased joeys and 2 owned joeys on my account.  I would like to add a 211k for my RV as well, will dish let me do that seeing as I am already at my receiver limit?  Also, what are the additional fees associated with a 211k RV receiver added to an account?

The way that should work is that they'll make you purchase the 211 and then activating it should add $7 to your bill.

And an RV 211 must be an owned 211 so that shouldn't be a hardship. I would suggest a 211 or a 211K the 211Z is stripped of features compared to the others.

Thanks, purchasing the tuner is not a concern, glad to get some clarification between the 211k and 211z, I thought since the z was newer it would be better.  I would have done a little more research before buying it but it helps to hear it from someone here.

I got the K because built in OTA and modulator, but the Z would be smaller for potability.
