The other, related, but less significant issue is the heat coming off the booster. When running on the 12v DC cord the heat coming off the booster measures 98 deg.. When running on 120v AC, the heat measures 125 deg. and customer service admitted it can run as high as 150 deg., though they claim it will not damage the booster. 150 deg. is too hot to touch so you would want to be careful where you mount it so it doesn't touch flammable materials.
I will give Wilson's customer service dept. credit for their quality of service. They answer fairly quickly(1-3 min), they speak clear English, they seem to be fairly knowledgeable about the products and they do seem eager to help. They offered to send me a 12v DC cord that does not reduce the voltage down to 6v. which should solve my slow internet problem, but I will still have a very hot unit with 12v going into it. Reducing the input power form 12v to 6v drastically reduces the performance of the booster. These differences are significant and should be made clear to prospective customers. In my four conversations with customer service prior to purchasing the unit, the difference in performance between 12v and 120v power sources was not mentioned.
The booster appears to made of die cast metal and is very sturdy. When I first set it up, I was not getting all four green lights and learned from a follow-up call to customer service that you need to keep the inside antenna away from windows which causes the inside and outside antennas to compete and cause feedback that reduces effectiveness.
I'm now satisfied with the booster but there were some problems that had to be overcome.
I've had 2 years experience with this booster now & decided to upgrade from 3 to 4 stars. I've mostly used the 6 volt power adapter but occasionally use the 12 volt adapter if I'm in a particularly remote area & the booster doesn't seem to be up to the task. Sometimes that seems to help, though I can't definitively say it's the different adapter that does it. Overall I'm pretty happy with the booster. We do a lot of boondocking around the country or have worked in remote areas of south Texas as gate guards. We use both Verizon & ATT cell/data service & we've only had once or twice that we got no signal. It typically boosts the signal 2-3 bars & from 1x to 3G or 4G. I've been in many remote areas where others nearby said they couldn't get any Verizon or ATT signal, while we were getting at least 3G or better. On rare occasions we've been way off the grid and appeared to get no signal for our cell phones or laptops. But when I placed the phone or either hotspot directly on top of the booster I was able to get a usable signal.
The one annoying thing is frequently 1 or 2 of the lower of the 4 green lights starts flashing red, meaning it's not working optimally. So I shut it down for 10 seconds & turn it back on. This usually solves the problem, at least for awhile. Otherwise adjust the direction you have the final booster aimed. We have it between my wife's & my chair & the flat panel aimed towards the middle of the rv , about a foot off the floor & away from the 4GX that's mounted up inside an overhead cabinet at the rear of the room. We also keep it aimed away from windows. The smooth side of the booster is what you're aiming, not the velcro side. Aiming the velcro side will have the opposite effect of what you want. And the booster must be within 3-6 feet of the phone or hotspot to get the best performance.
So with a little bit of work & experimenting, we've succeeded in getting it to do exactly what it's supposed to do. And it seems to work equally well for our Verizon Myfy & our ATT Mobley hotspots.
So then they tell me that a new cellular exterior antenna has just been released for semi's and RVs. It is the 4G-OTR Antenna (Truck Edition). Priced is steep at $99.00, but I need maximum coverage when parked. I ordered one from Wilson and received it within 2 days. This thing is LONG, 19" without the mount bracket, so I cannot mount it on the roof of my RV, it would clip the first bridge I went under. And, it must be mounted vertically to work correctly. I personally think it is too ugly to hang off the side of my RV to eliminate the height issue.
I need this when I am parked, not driving. So I find this pesky tv antenna on my roof that has never been used........
I used a piece of 1.25" aluminum L and built a small mount that mounted to my crank-up antenna frame. When the antenna is raised, the cellular antenna is perfectly parallel. When the antenna is lowered for travel, the cellular antenna sits parallel to my roof. This works like a charm now, my signal went from -121 DB to -79 DB in the coach!
