WifiRanger Sky3 on/off button (help)

Good evening RV Family!

I recently purchased a Thor A.C.E. 32.1. Iím exploring our new ďtoyĒ and canít locate the WifiRanger Sky3 on/off button or switch. Iíve searched high and low but canít find it. I have not put a ladder up to the roof to look at the Sky3 for any on/off indicators. Any ideas? Thanks!

-Steve

I just purchased my Thor Windsport and noticed there wasn't an off/on button. It connects automatically, but you need to use the quick reference information provided for you that has the IP address and password. Once you locate that quick reference sheet, put the number indicated into your browser...you do not need internet access to do that, because the Sky3 will pick up that number. Just follow the directions. Good luck!

We have a new Thor Siesta 24SS. It has a Winegard ConnecT 2.0 WiFi/4G lte extender and there is no on/off switch. I am going to install a switch...while it does not use much power, I still would rather have it off unless I plan to use it. Each tiny battery draw adds up.

If you get around to installing that switch for this thing, post some pics & part numbers please. :-)

I’d like to do the same. More to disable it to keep kids off of it than anything else.

The hardest part will be trying to follow/find the power wires to tap into. In looking at wiring schematics in the Winegard manual, looks like the way they turn on/off is with a switch on the positive line. So, a simple 12v dc switch is what I'd use...find on Amazon or auto parts store.

Here's the switch that I bought.

This weekend I'll hunt for the power wire to connect the switch to.

Found WiFi wires today. Was on the same fuse as the CO and Propane Alarm. Put switch next to that alarm. Sorry for the sideways photos...

Thank you for pointing this out!

Would it be too much to ask for a wiring diagram? Or a detailed owners manual? I seriously can’t understand why it’s not an existing standard.

Thanks again!

Have you gone to Thor Motor Coach site for documents? Log in (create user name & password, enter VIN) and at the top, click on "owners", then "Owners Resources". You will have several pages of diagram, schematics, user's manuals, etc. mostly for your particular coach. Some are generic or may not match but a call to Thor and they will send what you need. In your case for schematics, it will be there. If you have questions regarding something on the schematic, you have 2 options: 1) call Thor, 2) keep posting them in this forum. Between those 2 options, you will probably get your answers. Good luck and have fun. It's why we have RVs.

WiFi Ranger not showing up as an option??

Iíve been using the WiFi Ranger for almost 2 weeks on this trip, and today the WiFi ranger is not showing up as an option to choose. When I enter the numerical address, it says ďcanít open pageĒ. I have heard birds on our coach roof this morning. Can birds peck at the WiFi ranger on the roof and destroy it? Any ideas?
