Is WiFi Ranger your answer to WiFi networks?

Well it’s time to add a new feature to travel trailers if electric awnings, remote controls, LED lights and
leveling systems were not enough. The manufacture Starcraft jumped into new technology for
standard equipment on a RV. Is this an important game changing new feature? Time will tell.


First of all let me say that it’s a big advancement for those of you who travel from RV park to RV park and you want to have better Wi-Fi. If you find yourself on the wrong end of an RV park you may not get much signal because buildings and distance can interfer with the signal and that’s where the Wi-Fi Ranger can help.

Some background to help you understand. Wi-Fi is a radio signal that allows us to attach our wireless phones and computers that have wireless antennas built in that receive the radio signal we call Wi-Fi. In RV parks, you never are sure what kind of signal will be available, and cell data rates are not always the best thing for the pocket book. So that’s where this new feature comes into play.

The Wi-Fi Ranger not only has the ability to boost the signal it also has a router that allows you to secure your own network inside your RV. When you have a signal that is far away you will need a way to reach the signal and boost it for your Wi-Fi devices. With all those RV’s and devices connected to the same Wi-Fi network, you will also need a way to secure your devices from other users. Without a secure network someone outside could access your devices. The Wi-Fi Ranger has both the receiver and a secure router to enable you to build a network that is password protected. 


Starcraft RV's with Wi-Fi ranger have a window sticker showing it's equipped with this new feature. If it has the sticker like the Starcraft in my short video then you will be able to boost Wi-Fi signals and create a secure network. If it does not have this WI-FI Ranger sticker, I would recommend you consider a product like this to help you have even a better experience RVing!

Joining the RV business in 2001 and then Blue Dog RV in Kennewick in 2012 has been a great adventure for me. Most of those years I have been in sales and in August of 2016 I moved into my new Content Manager roll. I love being a part of how present our products today and with the growth of digital media, the internet and new ways to use tradition Video and audio it’s an amazing daily learning experience. I grew up in tent and pick up camper camping out enjoying the amazing Northwest outdoors. I love being able to influence others with this RV lifestyle. This business still gets me excited today. I have resided in the Tri-Cities, WA area again 17 years now with wife Shannon and one 16 year old son still at home. Shannon and I both work in the people service business and it’s always been our passion.
