How to Get Internet in Your RV

In a recent episode of Lichtsinn RV Live we covered how to get internet in your RV. In the broadcast we reviewed the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 4G LTE & WiFi and the WeBoost Drive X RV you can watch the Lichtsinn RV Live here.

The Winegard ConnecT 2.0 captures available WiFi signals providing maximum security & mobile internet speed! Keep mobile devices, media players, and computers connected on the road. ConnecT 4G models link to nationwide 4G LTE for reliable, uninterrupted, in-motion and stationary coverage.

How Winegard ConnecT 2.0 works:

  • Connects to Winegard data plan: 30 day, no contract plans
  • Capability to swap SIM card to add to new or existing data plans from Verizon, AT&T, T Mobile, Sprint & US Cellular.
  • Step-by-step on screen instruction makes setting up a breeze.
  • Connect your WiFi devices to your new extended network instantly.
  • 4G models connect to 4G LTE when WiFi is not available.
  • Easily connects your mobile devices, smart TVs, and gaming controls.

The weBoost Drive X RV is our powerful RV cell phone signal booster kit certified for use anywhere in the US. The Drive X RV boosts voice and data with max FCC allowed 50 dB system gain, enhancing 4G LTE, as well as 3G network signals, up to 32x.  RVers get fewer lost connections and dead zones, better call quality as well as faster data uploads and downloads whether parked or in motion in their RV.  Works in all classes of RV; Class A, Class B, Class C and all towables.

How the weBoost Drive X RV works:

  1. Receives Signal – the booster reaches out to the cell tower to access voice, text and data signals while parked or in-motion.
  2. Boosts Signal – the booster receives the outside signal, amplifies it up to 32 times and sends it to the inside antenna.
  3. Expands Signal – the inside antenna broadcasts the boosted signal to devices inside the RV.

You can use our interactive cellular and WiFi device finder to identify what device best suites you here. Learn more about these two options for getting internet in your RV by calling the Lichtsinn RV Parts Department at 1-800-343-6255.

RV Service Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

In a recent Lichtsinn RV Live, Brian Buffington, Lichtsinn RV Service Director, answered some of our frequently asked questions of the service department and answered our audience’s questions live. Here are our RV Service FAQs –

Watch our video on Service FAQs and Winnebago’s Fiberglass Roof here.

Can I hook up a 2 Amp trickle charger to a Class A gas or Diesel without disconnecting the batteries? 

It is always recommended to unhook the battery when working with any chassis items to prevent damage or health hazards. 

When winterizing an RV using the dry method, is it required to charge the system with antifreeze? 

Not necessarily, but there are a few other steps you have to do with that method. It is best to refer to your owner’s manual to see the recommended steps to winterize using air. We like to suck up a little RV antifreeze in the pump to protect it and then make sure to put antifreeze down all the drains. 

What is the recommended installation for solar on a fiberglass roof? 

Most manufacturers’ panels come with the mounting brackets. 98% of the solar panels we install are done by mounting the panel by cutting into the roof and resealing it. There is an option for mounting a panel without cutting into the roof and we do that as well. 

What is the max height for a solar panel? 

It depends on the layout of the roof. Generally, the lower the better. You don’t want to get it too high and get a parachute effect.

With a diesel engine how do you recommend you break it in?

Our recommendations are based on the chassis manufacturers recommendations. 1,000 mile break in at various speeds without a tow car to properly seat the cylinders. 

Can I upgrade my house batteries to lithium?

Yes, we do it all the time. There are some additional considerations we would need to take into account based on your RV. If you are interested please call our service department at 1-800-343-6255 and we will assist.

Is it difficult to remove the stabilizer jacks?

 Stabilizer jacks are not difficult to remove if you have the right tools. It can be difficult to access the bolts that would need to be removed. 

How should I maintain the house batteries?

If you have flooded lead acid batteries with a water level – watch the water level in the batteries, don’t leave it plugged in all the time, and keep the batteries clean.  

What should I do of the tank levels are not reading correctly? 

Make sure you are doing black tank flushes frequently if you have that feature. Thetford also makes some good products to help clear out your tanks. 

Is it better to use the electric function of a heater instead of LP, if you have access to electricity?

We always recommend using electricity to conserve LP. 

What cleaners should you use on the roof of a Winnebago View? 

As needed, use general soap and water and be very careful it can be very slippery. 

Do all Winnebago motorhome models have fiberglass roofs? 

Winnebago’s more price conscious products like the Intent, Outlook and Vita have a dicor roof membrane. However, underneath the dicor membrane the roof is still constructed with the same industry-leading SuperStructure Construction method as Winnebago’s fiberglass roofs. 

How do fiberglass roofs hold up to hail?

Fiberglass roofs hold up excellently to hail. We used to own an auto dealership when we would have hail we wouldn’t worry about the fiberglass roofs on the RVs.

RV Insurance Available at Lichtsinn RV

Whether you are using your RV for recreational use or living in your RV full time, we can customize a policy to fit your exact needs. 

Watch our video detailing the RV insurance options available at Lichtsinn RV here.

We have found many of our Insurance customers do not have adequate coverage or are simply paying too much for the coverage they do have for their RV insurance. Unfortunately, by the time they realize this they may have already incurred substantial loss or expense.

Many Insurance Companies will insure your RV, but often you are only getting coverage for physical damage. It may not cover items that “RV Specific” Insurance does, such as RV Full/Total Loss Replacement (offered on newly purchased RV’s one model year old or newer: if your RV is totaled within the first 5 years, this policy provides the monetary equivalent of what it costs to buy a brand-new RV of the same or similar model, even if it costs more than what you originally paid for your RV.) We also offer Agreed Value and Actual Cash Value Policies. RV specific Insurance can also cover items such as: Vacation LiabilityPet Injury CoverageFire Department Service Charges or Personal Effects Coverage for contents inside the RV. Most “other” Insurance Policies do not offer these additional benefits.

If you are looking to buy a new RV or just simply looking for possible savings from RV Insurance you’ve already purchased elsewhere, one of our Insurance Consultants can provide you a no-obligation insurance quote.

AND we have Multi-Policy Discounts! Our knowledgeable staff is also able to quote auto, home, motorcycle and boat policies that can provide you additional savings to you as well.

The Ultimate Guide to RV Insurance

RV Insurance: Are You Properly Covered

Winnebago SuperStructure Construction

As the largest Winnebago Dealer in North America, we speak to thousands of interested RV buyers each year. Typically, they have already chosen a Winnebago product for a variety of reasons – Winnebago’s innovative products, best-in-class features and many more. However, one reason we hear over and over is Winnebago’s quality is far superior to every other RV manufacturer in the U.S.A.

You can watch our video explaining how Winnebago motorhomes are made here.

A key reason why Winnebago’s product quality is far superior is their legendary SuperStructure construction design. Winnebago refers to their industry-leading construction design (in the Class A and Class C motorhome product lines) as the SuperStructure.Winnebago's SuperStructure Construction Design

The SuperStructure has four main components that make it so super! –

Interlocking Joints – Winnebago uses a specially designed interlocking joint to connect the floor, sidewalls, and roof to evenly distribute the weight, so our “empty shell” is so strong it doesn’t need internal reinforcement. Many competitors rely on simply screwing and gluing their sidewalls and roof together. But with all the weight borne only by those screws, the resulting structure is so weak it requires interior walls and cabinets for stability.

Laser-Cut Tubing – Precision laser cutters create precise joints in structural steel that are stronger and require less welding. While some manufacturers use less-accurate manual saws or cut-off saws. Winnebago’s precision laser cutter can also cut shapes into a tube, and even etches the length of each part directly onto the tube.

Thermo-Panel Sidewalls – By layering fiberglass and high-density block foam insulation with welded aluminum support structures, we create some of the industry’s strongest, most durable and lightweight sidewalls.

E-Coating – To help minimize corrosion, metal parts and components can feature one of several protective coating processes. Critical steel structural components are processed through a multi‑stage full immersion electro-­coating (e-coating) system. E-coating is also used by leading automotive companies to protect their vehicles from corrosion.

Winnebago also uses steel, not wood (like other manufacturers), to create a strong, durable cab substructure. Winnebago mounts the windshields securely with non-hardening sealants, just like an automobile. By using an advanced alignment system when mounting the cab to the chassis, Winnebago ensures a sturdy, square foundation.

There are several other reasons why Winnebago’s quality is superior to other manufacturers. If you are interested in learning more about Winnebago motorhomes, the sales, service and parts team at Lichtsinn RV are subject matter experts on all things Winnebago.

Winnebago View 24D Top 12 Improvements

The all new View and Navion 24D have been restyled for 2020 and include several improvements over the 2019 models. With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining freedom with comfort, this vehicle has been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience. Read the Top 12 Improvements in the Winnebago View and Navion 24D below.

WATCH OUR VIDEO REVIEWING THE TOP 12 IMPROVEMENTS ON THE WINNEBAGO VIEW AND NAVION 24D

New Mercedes-Benz VS30 Chassis: The new View and Navion are powered by the innovative, fuel-efficient Mercedes Benz VS30 Sprinter, with interior aesthetic upgrades, similar to what is in the Mercedes S Class luxury auto. The VS30 chassis comes with a 3.0 litre six cylinder turbo diesel, 325-lb. ft. of torque or power, and a Seven speed automatic 7G Tronic Plus transmission with grade braking. You can learn more about the VS30 chassis here.2020 Winnebago View

Increased Power (2,000-watt inverter and dual group 31 batteries): The new View and Navion have increased inverter power and RV house battery power in 2020. In previous model years, the Winnebago View and Navion had a 1,000-watt pure sine wave inverter to safely power electronics within the coach, but in 2020 they upgraded it to 2,000-watts. Winnebago also upgraded the coach batteries to dual group 31 batteries.

More Storage Capacity: The Winnebago View increased interior storage capacity and added smart storage features like the recessed paper towel holder.

New Hybrid Cooktop with Both Gas and Induction: The new Winnebago View and Navion feature a hybrid cooktop with one dedicated induction cooktop and one dedicated gas cooktop. Having a gas cooktop will allow you to cook your meals while dry camping, and an induction cooktop allows for more energy efficient cooking.Hybrid Cooktop in the Winnebago View

Larger Compressor Refrigerator: Winnebago introduced the compressor refrigerator in the View with the launch of the 24D floorplan. The compressor refrigerator provides RVers several benefits including more consistent cooling and operation in un-level terrain.

Lighted In-Drawer Cabinets: In the 2020 Winnebago View and Navion – lighting was added to the drawers to improve the aesthetics of the drawers and to allow users to see the contents of the drawers in the dark.

Bigger Window Over Dinette: With the slideroom depth improvement, it allowed Winnebago to dramatically increase the size of the window over the dinette.

New Legs on the Murphy+ Bed: Winnebago updated the legs on the Murphy+ Bed to better blend into the Murphy+ Bed and provide better interior aesthetics.

U-Lounge with Deeper Slide Room: The 2020 Winnebago View has a deeper slide room than previous model years – measuring at 36″ – allowing for a large U-Shaped Dinette to take the place of the previous dinette. The U-Shaped Dinette measures at 42″ x 79″ and has extendable footrests.U-Shaped Dinette in the Winnebago View

New Roof Access Port in the TV Cabinet: New to the 2020 Winnebago View is the roof access port located in the cabinet behind the TV. This port gives owners direct access to their roofs if they want to mount a satellite, cell phone booster or any other technology. This port allows owners to customize their electronic set up and upgrade it easily throughout their ownership.

Recessed Paper Towel Holder: Winnebago added several space saving features in the Winnebago View and Navion including a recessed paper towel holder. This gives owners countertop space for where a traditional paper towel holder would have been stored.

MBUX Infotainment Center: The Mercedes-Benz VS30 chassis comes with the MBUX infotainment center. The MBUX system is both an infotainment and multi-media system that can be activated by voice controls. Similar to Amazon’s Alexa or Apple’s Siri, the MBUX system is activated by a driver stating, in natural language, “Hey Mercedes.” The MBUX system is powered through artificial intelligence, so it is able to learn about the users driving preferences and create a better, more tailored experience for the driver. MBUX will learn your preferences and present them to you through a suggestions panel. Learn more about the MBUX center here.

 Top Questions from our Webcast on WiFi and Cell Boosters 

 

 

Top Questions from our Webcast on WiFi and Cellular Boosters

RVers increasingly are looking for technology that enables them to stay connected to family and friends, work remotely, or stream media. So we covered the options for WiFi and cell boosters in one of our webcasts. Below are the top questions from our webcast. We also created a step-by-step tutorial on how to choose a wifi, cellular or combined wifi and cellular booster for your coach. See it here.

WATCH OUR LIVE WEBCAST ON WIFI AND CELL BOOSTERS HERE

What is the best way to stream Netflix, Hulu, etc. on your RV TV?

There are a couple ways of streaming onto your TV. One of the easiest ways of doing this is using an adapter from your smartphone, tablet or computer and connect it to your TV utilizing an HDMI cord. There are also separate devices, like Blue Ray players, already connected to your TV with streaming services built in. Most Blue Ray players that come with Winnebago’s RVs have streaming services like Netflix and Hulu built in. The third way is an adaptor that is plugged into the HDMI port with the streaming services built in. Examples of these are Amazon Fire Sticks, Google Chromecast, Roku stick, and Apple TV. These range from $39.99 for the firestick to $149.99 for the Apple TV.

What considerations with the weboost you have to take into account with shorter coaches?

With the WeBoost 4GX the amplifier connects to the internal antenna and needs to be far enough away from the external antenna to prevent oscillation, but very close to the objects you are trying to boost. So a shorter coach can prove to be difficult.

Is there an additional monthly fee for the Winegard Connect 2?

There is not an additional fee if you use your own SIM card, however, if you don’t you can purchase data through Winegard.

Are there options to boost over-the-air TV options?

Yes, if you have an older coach with an older Winegard antenna you can add the Winegard RV-Wing Wingman to boost your over-the-air reception.

If someone primarily uses their computer to stream videos are they better off buying a WiFi booster or a combined WiFi and 4G Booster?

It depends on where you are planning on RVing. If you are planning on primarily staying in campgrounds with WiFi a Wifi Booster will probably be sufficient, but if you are planning on staying off-the-beaten path in campsites

Lichtsinn RV, America’s closest dealer to Winnebago Industries, has been named Top North American Winnebago Dealer by Winnebago Industries for the last four consecutive years. We proudly sell New RVs manufactured by Winnebago Industries as well as Used RVs
