Winegard ConnecT 2.0 - Please Help

We had a Winegard ConnecT 2.0 professionally installed in our Airstream. The manual and dealer stated that it is compatible with our current cellular provided, which is Verizon. I contacted Verizon and they sent me the SIM card, which is properly installed in the Winegard unit on the roof. It does not work and I have tried about everything I can think of to trouble shoot it. I have also had Verizon tech support tell me it will work AND it will not work. We upgraded our plan to unlimited data so we would not get throttled down, but that's useless if we can't get the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 to function. Our work around has been our Weboost, but I'd like to get this fairly expensive addition to work. If anyone is on Verizon or has had a similar experience with this newer product from Winegard, I'd love some input. Thank you.

I am in disbelief. They went from one blunder to the next with this 2.0. They let you use a sim and dropped the proprietary mandatory Winegard data plan, but they eliminated the ethernet internal LAN feature! So now you have a wifi unit on the roof of a big aluminum grounded shell. I had such horrible wifi in my 22fb that I just completed my internal ethernet network with an 8 port switch, I would never buy this. Strike 3.0 and your out so we'll see.

Shazam,

I have not gotten it to work and it has been very frustrating. I am taking our trailer to the dealer for some other services and I will be revisiting this issue as well.
