If it were me... I would just pick up a Roku 2 or one of the other Roku devices and just take that on your trip. It will be a lot less hassle. I think most people use the SlingBox to view the content from a cable-provided box on a TV in another room (or location). I don't believe you would even have the capability to change the "channel" for the Roku TV app from a remote location (but, I could be wrong). You can probably find a refurb Roku 2 on GroupOn or something.
