Thank you Big Sky for sharing your story.

I'm sure Fathers and Mothers Days are special in your household. And as your kids grow up, I'm sure they will have some terrific memories.

I know they are expensive, but after a few years of battling with the tri-pod we installed the Winegard Trav'ler for HD DirecTV. Have you looked into these? You do become much more conscious of how you park your TT but they sure are convenient, push a button and drink a beer while the robot locates itself with GPS and then fine tunes the direction/angle & azimuth. Well worth the money if you are moving locations frequently. I've been completely surprised how many times it can dial in signal when we are surrounded by trees.

We had ours installed 3-4 years ago, looks like that model has been discontinued. The SWM technology seems to be integrated into the new dish. They cost less on Amazon.

Yes, I did look into them and the cost of over $2,000 took care of that. I have become very proficient at setting up the large dish on a tripod. lol

We use ours for news/weather and the occasional movie during inclement weather. Nothing gets in the way of fishing time [unless DW needs anything].

LOL....Yeah you'd need some strong motivation to spend that much. It works for us.

We have a DVD player in ours. A movie is nice for occupying kids time when you are stuck in the camper due to rain.

Television in the TT

I put in a 22" Samsung and mounted it to the wall. I have a 6 year old daughter with special needs, so we let her watch something during breakfast, but that's it. Otherwise all the kids are outside being kids. I will sometimes catch a sports event on it, but not often
