New to the forum - 2013 Winnebago Tour 42QD

Hey Everyone - new to the forum here. Relatively new owner of a Winnebago Tour 42QD and loving it. Already having a few issues and questions so figured a forum would be a great place to go.

We are full time but I work while on the road. I travel a fair amount for work but last I checked, there are airports everywhere!

I am an IT guy and have some pretty cool WiFi Solutions I have for my rig as it is my living to be connected.

Originally from Minnesota, last from Wisconsin, now from somewhere around 75°. We're Thousand Trails, Encore and RPI members so you can count on us being in those parks.

Looking forward to the interaction here!

Cheers to RV Life!
Lyle & Wenping

Welcome! Glad to have you here.

I'm retired now and sold my internet based business in 2017. Self-employed for 30 years I too had to be reachable online whenever we traveled. Currently using a Wifi Ranger, Weboost Drive 4g-X, Verizon and ATT Mifi's with totally unlimited data plans (the real kind). We stream all our TV and have many devices hanging off of the GoAC router.

Cheers.

great setup - I started with just an ATT Netgear Nighthawk with unlimited. Knowing I'd find sketchy ATT periodically, I added a full Verizon as well now. I just added the Pepwave MAX Transit DUO "PrimeCare Edition" Dual Modem LTE-Advanced Mobile Router. This takes both SIMs + up to one WiFi and pushes the combined streams to an AWS server for un-bundling. Basically said, I get the combined throughput of both sim cards plus the WiFi. I can use a free campground WiFi or turn my phone into a T-Mobile hotspot giving me essentially 3 different networks at once. It is amazing!

I definitely need to add a rooftop antenna though as I know the rig is interfering with my bandwidth sometimes.

I have an ATT Nighthawk, too. I connect it via Ethernet to the WFR router and my Verizon 7730L Jetpack to the router via USB. On top of that when we have good rv park internet I set them all three up to load balance. The router constantly moves between the best source to keep access at top speeds.

For rooftop I have a Weboost 4" stubby antenna on a ground plane. But mostly we use a Netgear MiMo antenna in the window. Many times it out performs the Weboost booster/antenna combo.

The Pepwave looks great - but since I had all of this stuff over the past 4 or 5 years (updating a single piece here and there) I've not wanted to start over at this point. Plus now that I sold my network of websites my only urgent need for internet is for streaming, etc.
