Multiple Genies on same account

I have a Genie and five other HD DVRS on a whole home network and a seperate HD DVR in my motor home. My question is why I cannot a Genie to my motor home. The motor home uses a Wineguard sattelite dish and my home uses a Direct TV dish. tow completely seperate systems. Right now I only pay $7 dor the Motor Home setup. Direct TV wants me to have a seperate acount which would double my bill to allow the second Genie. Why?

DTV only allows one Genie per account due to problems with the minis trying to connect to both of them. If you want to take the home Genie with you you will lose the spot beams for your local channels and will not be able to receive any local channels in other locations.
