    Default TV & internet in RVs/Campers?

    What do you all use for cable TV and internet service in your RVs/Campers?


    Thanks,

    Barb, you need a MiFi device from Verizon or AT&T for internet, they are small, portable, wireless and work well.
    Verizon, has better service in Lincolnton. For tv an antenna and cable to an hd flat screen.
    All local channels are broadcast in hd and you can watch for free. My antenna was $39 bucks at Best Buy.
    I would ditch your current phone service and go with Verizon, you can do a bundle with anew phone and a MiFi device.
    Hey, thanks for the sweets from Capri bakery, I had Napolean on Monday, great after lunch treat.

    Maybe in the big city, but what about at out at the Goshen RV Resort?

    Actually, Terry's Verizon MiFi works pretty good out there. My Clear MiFi, which would be like T Mobile, does as well, but not 4G.

    Damn, again with Verizon!! I have Boost Mobile unlimited on my phone for $40 a month, just hate to pay Verizon's prices, but they got ya. Especially when you have to call the police to get AAA to you when your DEEPLY stuck in the mud with no cell service.

    Thanks for the info Greg.. but help me out. Ok, so MiFi for internet got that.

    For digital CABLE do what? I have a big antenna on the top of the RV which does nothing for me as far as TV reception out there. I do have a converter box and antenna hooked up, but I only get 2 channels FOX and NBC, sometimes ABC. But, that's spotty. I usually have to put Ten in a sit stay on the couch next to the antenna so I don't lose signal. So I'm sure he will happy for an upgrade. Satellite?

    Your welcome on the pastries, glad you got one to enjoy. That place is the bomb. You should have tried the chocolate cigar. Brought them to my girlfriend in Michigan she had an orgasm. She had me ship some back up there when I got home.
    Next trip down.. some New York pizza. Al said it's probably the same as Pappa John's. Don't think so, they say it's our dirty New York water try getting a pizza in Bermuda, you can't.

    Thanks again for the info... absolutely time to switch to Verizon for phone and now MiFi device. Let me about the digital cable TV.

    Hi Penn,

    Hah, the Goshen RV Resort. We have been working on names and came up with some good ones. It's really looking nice out there, so relaxing. Got it set up nice... Alex's wooden picnic table.. I bought a weber grill and 3 person swing with canopy all under a pecan tree with a beautiful view.

    Thanks for the info, any ideas on cable TV? Say hi to Terry for me!

    Actually not a problem at all, we have a digital antenna in our RV and we pick up several stations no matter where we stayed. TV really is no big deal.


    If you need a cell phone amplifier try Wilson Electronics I bet the could fix almost anybody up.
