Purchasing our first RV and AS. Pickup is July 19. We will then be fulltiming for a year starting Sep 1. Going with a similar configuration as Ohiobrits (MobileMark antenna, Pepwave Max BR1 router, weBoost Drive 4GX cell booster and Wilson 50ohm Dome internal antenna), and may want to support other components (as does BoldAdventure) - like AppleTV.
My wife wants best possible connectivity so our kids and her parents will be able to reach us so we are maximizing signals for both wifi and cell. Plan on using our current Verizon plan for primary voice and data and the TMobile 6GB plan with unlimited streaming for video sites. We expect to spend most of our "online" time in the dinette/lounge area.
The dealer (CanAm) will be installing the wiring and components into our new FC27FB with one AC unit. CanAm is also installing our solar system, so they will already be running wires from the roof.
Where are best locations to house the electronic components?
My current plan is to place the MobileMark at the front of the trailer roof and the electronic components in the cabinet above the dinette at the back of the trailer. We would then mount the internal cell dome antenna on the ceiling directly in front of the ceiling cabinet. This would allow for a 20' separation between the external and internal antenna. With the door open, we should also be able to get some boosted cell signal if we are sitting directly outside next to the trailer. I assume there must already be 12V
power in the overhead cabinet because that is where the DVD and stereo components are installed.
I welcome your experience-based suggestions and comments!
