You can get your locals, but you have to call DirecTV and ask them to change your "service address". They are fully aware that people use the service in their RV's and haven't had any issues with it. When I ordered an extra receiver, I told them it was for the RV and all they said was that we would still have to pay the monthly lease charge whether we used it or not.
We change our locals at least once a year. We don't bother for trips shorter than a week, but when we take an extended trip and will be in the same spot for an extended stay, we do it.
Just know that if you do that, it will change the locals on ALL of your receivers on the account whether still in your home or in your RV, and if you were recording something on your local channels at home while you were away, they wouldn't record properly.
It is also a "roll of the dice" on whether you get a CS rep that knows what they are doing and doesn't mess up the change, so I always double check the account info after they have finished. More than once, the rep changed our billing address as well as the service address and I had to call back a couple of times to get it all sorted out.
Another surprise we got was when we camped in Florida. Down there, you are charged 21.00+ for their regional sports packages that we don't pay for in Michigan. So while we were in Florida, with our "service address" there, our bill went up accordingly.
