Dishes are the main component of a satellite system. They consist in a parabolic reflector which collects the signal and reflects it to the systems LNB or feedhorn. It functions similar to an antenna with a larger surface area. Some can support multiple receivers for several televisions. Others are designed to only accommodate one. It all depends on the brand and model. However, most mobile dishes that are electronically controlled to find the optimal signal are only for one receiver/ television.

The placement of your satellite dish is crucial to receiving a good signal. Most RV dishes are mounted on the roof for easy operation and good signals. The location of the satellite changes and especially with RV dishes it can be hard to find. Therefore, it is essential that the dish can move. Some use a mechanical swivel to change direction of the dish by hand. However, other models incorporate the use of a sensing device to move the dish to a proper angle for best reception. These are usually more expensive by a large margin, yet the accuracy and convenience is well worth the extra money. Consumers should note that if the RV is parked under a tree then this can incur some complications. Making sure your RV and dish are level is also an important issue to ensure a good signal.
