    I have a brand new 2018 Coachmen Concord and it came with a Wally receiver, King Tailgater satellite antenna, and a King Jack OTA antenna, without an auto signal finder. My question is: Are these the devices I can purchase for an RV? I want to increase my chances of great OTA, satellite and Internet chances. Also, can I replace the wally box with a hopper to be able to view my DISH ANY WHERE app "Live"? If not, please advise the equipment thats available to make that happen.

    Strongly suggest talking to your RV dealer he knows what he sells and can guide you to the option that will keep you as a happy camper

    To use a Hopper in your RV you'll need a home dish on a tripod or mount a Winegard Trav'ler automatic multi-satellite antenna on the roof. You can even use the Hopper 3 if you add a DPH42 Switch. I’ve found the best OTA reception using the Sensar IV (batwing) with the SensarPro TV Signal Strength Meter. You can use Dish’s Dual OTA Adapter for the Hopper, but the tuners are kind of week compared to my 2009 “TiVo HD” DVR. I also use the Winegard TV Signal Finder App with Augmented Reality to help find the best place to park when faced with those evil trees and to find the best OTA signals. As for internet I use my iPad's personal hotspot feature and internet sharing because most RV parks have limited Wi-Fi systems. That may hamper your use of sling. BTW I am not affiliated with Winegard just a happy customer. Nice RV.
