We have Dish at home for our TV service. We dropped cable years ago because they did not carry the BIG TEN network. We have been resonably satisfied with Dish. Had to trim a few trees a few years back but that is about it. When we bought a 2012 2551 in May, I negotiated a satellite dish as part of the deal. Phoenix installed the dish for us at the factory. We attended the Good Sam Rally in Louisville where we took part in a Dish Seminar. I found out that since I was already a Dish customer I could add my own receiver to my plan for 7 bucks a month. I bought the receiver at Camping world and installed it my self without to much trouble. We plan on using it this winter to watch Purdue basketball in Florida. If you do not have a satellite receiver installed on your unit you might want to look into Dish's Tailgater unit. It is less expensive and could be totally installed by your self. It also would have the advantage of moving around to find a clear view of the southern sky since it is not permanently attached to your motor home. Dish also has special plans for motor homes if you do not have it at home. I cannot comment on internet or phone. We get our internet through AT&T along with our land line. We just invested in a wireless hot spot from Verizon for our internet while we are in the motor home. Hope this helps. By the way you will have to use cable or the antenna for local TV channels, since Dish only gets local channels for the area around your home. Dish has a special section on their WEB site just for RV's. They also have specialized customer service for RV customers.
