THOR #14076
WiFi Extender

My new 2019 Thor Windsport 27B says that it comes with a WiFi Extender. I asked the dealership about it when I did my walkthrough. He said he didn't know anything about it, or if it had it. I climbed up on the roof today and there it is; Wifi Extender. How does this work? Is there something I have to connect to? Does it just automatically make my WiFi stronger in the coach? I know there is a WiFi button in the coach, but neither he nor I really had any idea what it does. I assume it is connected to the extender. I am planning to buy the Winegard ConnecT 2.0. Will whatever is in the coach work with that, or does it replace it?

Thanks to anyone more knowledgeable than I (that'd be mostly all of you when it comes to WiFi set ups) that can explain this to me.

You should have got a build list with your coach detailing exactly what is installed (including serial numbers). You'll find your WiFi Extender listed on that build list. Then google it and find the manual (if the manual isn't included in your Thor bag).

In addition: Make sure you log into Thor's Owner Resources page (have your VIN handy). You'll probably find the owner's manual for it there as well:

I think you'll find you won't need your Wineguard Connect as that is what you already have.

Ummmm, maybe the tech should have stopped and called Thor at that point to educate both him and you on how to operate it. I believe they have a direct line just for situations like that.

I just picked up my 2019 Miramar with the wifi extender. My PDI did not cover it either. However I did find paperwork in my bag of manuals with the password and directions for it.
