Wonder what is the issue?
Maybe antenna size due to low horizon, but that would impact any dome or portable(?).

A quick interweb search shows many Dish retailers in AK, but obviously they would be selling/installing the Dish 1000.2.
For an RV, that would require a tripod 1000.2 or Trav'ler(?)

Safe travels

Yes the low horizon probably is the problem. I have read in the past people with domes have had a problem viewing programming in AK. What ever the OP buys he needs to make sure it will work in Canada and AK.

For better or worse, I ordered from Winegard the Road Trip Mission, 4000s. It's a new one and offered with a 30% discount if it's replacing a defunct model. My SD was made in 2005 and is essentially a big paperweight. They had me give them the serial number of the SD I imagine so they would know I am replacing a "dead" one. It's being shipped as we speak.
