In order to print to your HP 3050a from your iPad, or any other computer, you will need to connect both devices to the same WiFi network. If you have your own WiFi router in your coach then the setup will be basically like you have it setup at your home. If you are using the campground WiFi you will need to connect both devices to the campground WiFi. However, I would NOT advise you do this as you create two problems. The first problem is basically anyone else on the campground WiFi can connect to your printer and print to it! The second problem is you have to setup your printer and iPad each time you move to a new campground.
The best way, IMHO, is to setup a WiFi router in your coach and use an external WiFi device such as a Ubiquiti Picostation airMAX | Ubiquiti Networks, Inc.
attached to the Internet Port on the router. Each time you move to a new campground you would need to configure the Picostation to connect to the campground WiFi. There are some campground WiFis that require you to login on a webpage and this method will not work.
