weBoost Connect RV 65: Cellular Booster Overview

weBoost Connect RV 65: Cellular Booster Overview

Since we can’t afford to retire, we have a choice. We either work on the road… or get off the road. Luckily, technology allows us to stay connected just about anywhere. So we can take care of our clients and stay in touch with family & friends. The ability to research RV destinations on the fly is a decided plus, too!

Visiting some our favorite (i.e. remote) places used to be a big stressor. As much as we wanted to disappear into the wild, being disconnected for any length of time left us open to all sorts of potential problems. Of course we have the same issues a retired person might have, such as a family emergency where nobody is able to contact us. But we built our website design business on responsiveness. It’s hard to respond if you don’t even know you’re needed.

We’ve been enjoying much-reduced stress levels since we installed our weBoost Drive 4G-X. But people RV in lots of different ways. What if you’re someone who likes to spend longer periods of time in even more remote locations than we do? weBoost has a new cellular booster that might be right for you: the Connect RV 65.

Since it’s designed for stationary use only, the FCC allows the Connect RV 65 (max gain: 65 dB) to be more powerful than a booster that’s used in motion (max gain: 50dB). So if you need even more boost than a mobile unit can provide, and spend longer periods in one spot (so you don’t mind a little bit of setting up each time you arrive at your destination), this may be for you.

Check out the video above for a quick overview of the system and the performance we saw in our brief testing.

P.S. – That amazing boondocking spot shown in the thumbnail for the video is in the Alabama Hills, near Lone Pine, California. The exact GPS coordinates of the site we stayed in are: 36.610927, -118.128550. This particular spot is a bit off-level and takes a little work to get a big rig in there comfortably, but if you’re there for at least several days, like we were, it’s worth it! And with a weBoost cellular booster, you can get good, reliable signal from town (without it, you’ll likely have some difficulty getting online or making calls).

Have you tried driving with the RV 65 hooked up to an omni antenna? What is preventing the RV 65 not to work when mobile instead of parked? Will it work without the pole antenna?

Technically, John, yes... you could use the booster from the RV65 with another antenna, but we don’t recommend it. If you’re not careful, you could be violating FCC regulations on the allowable gain for mobile applications... and could cause interference for others on the same tower.

I have purchased a Wifi Ranger EliteAC system and have been playing around with mounting locations. I ran across someone whom referenced interference that needed to be considered when installing. My main question is regarding the Weboost Cellular booster. I have the Weboost Home 4G with both an omin-directional antenna and a directional antenna that came in the package (mounting separately and swap coax depending on situation).

We also plan to install a satellite receiver for TV, a King Tailgater Pro is what is on order.

Any considerations I should be aware of?

Thanks in advance for the help;

Hey Jeff. Technically, each of those antennas are operating on different frequencies, so they SHOULDN’T interfere with one another. To be safe, if you keep them separated (by at least a couple of feet), you shouldn’t have any issues. Even if you can’t do that there’s no reason they should conflict with each other.

So how does this compare to the WiFi Ranger elite pack?

Different beasts, Ralph. The WeBoost products are designed to boost your connection to the cellular network for your phone/tablet/hotspot device. The WiFiRanger doesn’t work with cellular frequencies. It lets you get a better connection to WiFi networks broadcast by RV parks, Starbucks, etc.

For anyone with a 3d printer, a ladder on the back of their RV, and a Weboost RV-65... here is a design I made to avoid using VHB tape on the sides of the RV. This mount easily zip ties to the ladder...and can be left on, or snipped off when not in use.

I enjoyed your video and the performance comparison with the Drive model.

Very clever, Charlie! Thanks for sharing. :)

Hi Guys,

You may remember that I have a Norcold absorption fridge that I was troubleshooting. The problem as you may recall was that it wouldn't stay lit on propane mode. One of your suggestions was to replace the propane regulator- which I did. Unfortunately this didn't remedy the problem. I dug deeper into my situation and after posting the problem on various sites and looking at all my Norcold literature, I decided to replace three parts...the gas valve, connected tubing, and the burner tube/orfice. I'm happy to say that .it works normally now. The repair took me about an hour but a younger, more nimble person could probably do it in less time. It was very satisfying to see the fridge lite right away, and stay lit. In my searches I wasn't able to find a video anywhere of this exact procedure so I should have done one myself....but I'm an old school guy who still only has a super 8 video cam and no idea how to up load in that format. Anyway, thank you both once again for your help and support.

Hi Drew! Yup... we sure remember! Sorry that the regulator didn't end up being the problem, but we're sure glad that you got it fixed! Sounds like you should be good to go for quite a while, now! Thanks for giving us an update and letting us know what ended up fixing your problem... could come in handy for someone else down the road! ?
