Winegard Trav'ler and Dish

My 722 receiver has died. The current upgrade is a Hopper and a wireless Joey.
Dish doesn;t do RV installs and referred me to a local Retailer.
However, the local retailer doesn't think the Trav'ler will talk to a Hopper.
I emailed Winegard but no response yet, so I thought I'd check with my friends on here!!!
Anybody got any experience with this configuration?
Thanks
Mike

Thought I would close this thread...
I did get a response from Winegard that the antenna would work.
After a few too many phone calls with Dish I had a tech come out yesterday and complete the installation.
We now have a Hopper with Sling and a wireless Joey.
It requires both coaxes from the antenna to function.
When I installed the antenna I upgraded all the coax associated with it.
The 722 receiver only used the primary coax. I am really happy I installed everything the installation instructions recommended.
Hope this helps anybody considering any of this.
Mike
