For the most part, you shouldn’t experience too many issues with your RV Wi-Fi. However, there are a handful of potential problems you may run into.
The most common problem you’re likely to encounter with RV internet is a spotty connection. Depending on where you are, there may not be much you can do about it—satellite internet requires a clear view of the sky, and mobile data and campsite Wi-Fi require close proximity to a tower or router, neither of which you may have much control over.
The best move in these situations is to relocate. Find a spot to park that’s closer to a cell tower or clearing so you can get a cleaner signal.
Another major issue is running out of data. You can typically purchase additional mobile data on an as-needed basis, but just make sure you keep an eye on how much you use, and adjust your plan accordingly.
Perhaps the best thing you can do to avoid connectivity issues is to have two different connection types available. Here are some examples:
- If you can’t get a clear view of the sky for your satellite dish, you can use your signal booster to connect to campground Wi-Fi.
- If you don’t have the on-the-go version of Starlink, you can use a mobile data connection to supplement on the road.
