If you are using the C41 type "mini" receivers (wired or wireless) at the remote TV's then you only need to check to make sure the Genie is setup with the new dish. Depending on what LNB you have at home, you may or may not need to repeat the satellite setup. If you do, it is not difficult to do.
Grab the remote and go to .....Menu, Settings, Satellite, Repeat Satellite Setup.
According to the online installation manual I found, you need to make sure the drop down menus read as follows: 01:SWM and 17:Slimline 3S (SWM). "Continue" thru the prompts and you can skip the remote setup because you should be taking those with you as well since they are already programmed for each receiver. At that point, you should be ready to go.
NOTE: You might also want to check the current settings before moving the Genie and write down the current settings in case you need to change them when you move the receivers back to the house.
