Is That Used RV Satellite Dish Still Good?

“Used RV for sale.” The sign in the driveway beckoned you from the road. You pulled in with the intention of “just looking,” but you’ve always wanted a camper of your own. The owner gives you the tour and your blown away. For a used RV, it’s in ideal condition. It even comes with a satellite dome. Not only will you be getting an RV, but you’ll also get DIRECTV too.

Not so fast!

Yes, the used RV market is really hot right now. Some older RVs will have satellite dishes but that doesn’t mean you can use them. There’s only one company that can tell you if the satellite TV equipment that came with your purchase still works. That company is our Signal Connect division, a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer.

Used RV Satellite Dishes: the Problems

The guy trying to sell you his old RV will say the dish is in “perfect working condition.” He’s trying to sell you his old RV! (Chances are, his wife is sick of seeing that behemoth sitting idly in the driveway.) The dude might not even be nefarious about it, either. The dish worked last time he used it, so he has no reason to believe it won’t work for you.

Here’s the problem: Most people selling their RVs aren’t satellite TV experts.

The reps at Signal Connect are the satellite TV experts you can trust. The company is a DIRECTV Authorized Dealer, which means everyone knows the company’s products and services inside and out. The team also has plenty of experience with the latest portable satellite TV antennas. One phone call to Signal Connect and our reps will let you know if the dome atop your RV will work or not.

Satellite TV for RVs and Signal Connect

The Signal Connect reps are DIRECTV experts with a long history of helping RV owners. For example, they’ll match owners up with the right DIRECTV receivers, remotes, and other satellite TV equipment. They can also match RVers with satellite dishes in case the one that came with the vehicle doesn’t work. Signal Connect also provides DIRECTV packages and arranges for installation in RVs, campers, and motorhomes.

Simply put, our Signal Connect division is a one-stop-shop for DIRECTV for RVs. They literally have everything RV owners need to see their favorite shows on the road. Speaking of which, there’s another extremely important service that Signal Connect provides to RV owners and that’s…
