Unhappy Winegard issue on new Windsport

Hi all, this is my first post.

I just bought a 2022 Windsport 29M from camping world at myrtle beach. I've had some problems with the purchase and the service. One of the problems is that the manual and sticker which lists the Winegard SSID/password doesn't match what is being broadcast.

I assume there was a mixup at Thor assembly. Anyone have this issue and anyone have any ideas how to get the actual default password for the winegard?

I suspect the password might be on the unit it's self but I'm trying to avoid going on the roof because 1, I have a fear of heights and 2, I'm about 30 lbs heavier than the max load capacity on the ladder.

Appreciate any help and thanks in advance.

Welcome to the forum.

Take it back to Camping World and have them verify the info. More than likely they got manuals mixed up.

I might have to. I've been avoiding that also as I'm not happy with the service they provided and I drove 3 hours to purchase this one.

You can try calling Winegard and see if they can help.

It's possible the dealer swapped your documents... the black pouch containing all your manuals - with another coach on their lot. I would guess that happened over the scenario of Thor mixing up the Winegard manual. But hey... stranger things have happened!!

Do a little "sleuthing" and see if you can find a number that identifies the documents you received... there may even be a VIN in there somewhere.

At least you'll be better prepared when you DO return to the dealer. The mystery will already be solved.

Thats possible, I was thinking it was Thor because it was also wrong on the sticker near the driver seat. I assumed Thor put that on but maybe camping world does.

In my 2021 Four Winds 28A, they put a sticker on the dog house on the passenger side. That would have been put there by the factory.

You need to be connected to the ssid it is broadcasting to be able to use the web browers connecting to the 10 net to log into the console.

SSID and password for his unit is under the little clear plastic covering on the unit on the roof.

You will need to reset it at the unit under same cover also. Need paper clip.

Try ADMIN for both default username and PW. We just went through this. Also call Winegard CS is pretty good.

Pull the cover off the roof unit and the QR code, IP address and any other info needed will be on a sticker on the backside of the cover

I seem to remember when I set ours up the password was ďchangemyĒ and then the numbers that were part of the ssid that was being broadcast. Iíll try to find the instructions for that. Ours is a 2019, so it may be completely different.
