We enjoy disconnecting from the fast-paced world as much as anyone, but sometimes you just have to keep in touch. Whether you want to check the weather at your next destination or keep the kids entertained while you get dinner ready, reliable connectivity is a luxury we can’t always do without. And while most campgrounds now offer central WiFi, the signal isn’t always strong enough to reach your spot. That’s when you can turn to a powerful product like the Winegard ConnecT 2.0! In this free lesson, we teach you about the benefits of upgrading your RV internet capabilities to Winegard’s newest lifesaver.

Extend your reach with the Winegard ConnecT 2.0

Winegard products have been featured in the RV Repair Club archives before, but this time around, they’ve really stepped up their game. To demonstrate what this RV electronic giant has been up to lately, RV maintenance expert Dave Solberg teaches you all about the Winegard ConnecT 2.0. This new gadget acts as both a WiFi extender and a 4G provider, so you’re guaranteed to get consistent internet connection whether you’re at a campsite with available but spotty coverage or an isolated mountain vista with zero coverage.

The Winegard ConnecT 2.0 can be permanently mounted to the roof of your vehicle, or temporarily set up if you need to move it around between vehicles or use it for different applications. Dave teaches you where and how to mount the ConnecT 2.0, and talks about the types of power sources you can use.

In our minds, the best aspect of the Winegard ConnecT 2.0 is its ability to be used while in transit. So if your family needs a little Netflix while you steer them toward adventure, feel free to fire it up! And don’t forget that Winegard does not require users to sign yearly contracts; just call or click to reconnect your service for as many months as you’ll need!

    I have had very bad luck with my Winegard Connect 2.0. I have better luck using my hotspot in my phone when I can. Very disappointed with the whole Winegard system.

    Hello my name is Roger I was wondering about internet access when I’m in a dead zone with no cell phone service can I still get Wi-Fi when I don’t have service? Does it connect 2 a satellite in the sky? I hope this isn’t a stupid question but we’re planning a trip to Alaska and they say on the way in Canada there will be spots where you do not get cell phone service. We want to be able to have Wifi signal wherever we’re at to use. Thanks in advance for any help.

    How reliable is the connection on the Winegard? Some of the research we found wasn’t positive.

      Hello Gary,

      I have actually heard some good feed back. I have not personally used it myself but I know some people that have it and they love it. They did tell me that in heavily wooded areas it can be tough to get a signal on the 4G but this is true for everything else that runs off of towers. If using just the Wifi off of the campgrounds, it really depends on their signal too. It can only go so far and if there are a lot of other campers or woods in between you and the source, it will be tougher to get the signal. Some areas it may work great while in others there is always a possibility of getting a weak signal. It can be different everywhere you go.

      Hope this helps,

    ticket 23292 Do I still need a modem or router in my MH that came with the Connect2.0?

      Dear David,

      Thank you for your patience. In response to your question-

      No you do not. Either way you use it, it will be a Wifi signal to your device so it is wireless in that aspect. Even if you connect to their 4G, you will have to connect to the Winegard system using Wifi on your device. It will just being using their own service instead of borrowing off of another Wifi signal. There is no need for a modem or router. I hope this helps!
