WINEGARD WB-1035 RangePro Cellular Booster for RVs User Guide
The Winegard RangePro is designed to work with existing cellular signals, and cannot be used as a standalone cellular hotspot. A cellular plan and device are required for operation.
INSTALL THE SIGNAL BOOSTER AND CONNECT INSIDE ANTENNA
Identify a location for the booster that is near the center of where signal is needed. The location should be free from excessive heat, direct sunlight, or moisture—and provide proper ventilation. (We suggest you mount the booster within a cabinet or on a side panel close to a power source.)
Connect the inside whip antenna to the port on the side of the booster labeled “INSIDE”.
Note: The inside antenna sends signals in a 360-degree radius and should be positioned vertically.
SELECT A SITE FOR THE OUTSIDE MOUNT
Note: To avoid possible interference, mount the antenna at least 15′ away from the indoor booster and allow at least 3′ from other RF products (such as satellites and over-the-air antennas).
The outside antenna must not be collocated or operating with any other antenna or booster.
Maximum height restriction is 31′ 9″ (10 meters) above ground.
We advise you first perform a “soft” installation by routing the outside antenna cable through an open window (step 4). After completing the “soft” installation and verifying successful operation, proceed with installing the external antenna.
Select a location for the outside antenna that is above the roofline. The outside antenna is omni-directional, which receives and sends signals
in a 360-degree radius. For maximum performance, mount the antenna at the highest possible location outside the vehicle and in an upright position, but also ensure this is a spot where you can drill a hole for cable entry
MOUNT OUTSIDE ANTENNA ON ROOF
- After selecting the outside antenna position, drill the cable hole through the roof in an area free from other cables or pipes.
- Feed the small end of the cable through the hole until only the connector and 1″ of coax remain outside the coach.
- Remove the three screws and washers that are attached to the outside antenna.
- Place the antenna through the hole on the top of the roof mount.
- Align the two small holes located on the bottom side of the antenna with the two small holes on top of the roof mount.
Next, reattach the three screws and washers through the roof mount and into the holes on the base of the antenna.
- Position the roof mount over the cable, threading the cable through the mount’s channel.
- Secure the mount on the roof by inserting and tightening the provided screws into the four mounting holes. Verify the provided screws are approved with the vehicle manufacturer before installing.
- Connect the cable to the outside antenna. Create a moisture barrier by using manufacturer-approved permanent sealant around all screws and holes in the RV roof.
MOUNT OUTSIDE ANTENNA ON ROOF MOUNT OUTSIDE ANTENNA USING OPTIONAL LADDER MOUNT
Before you begin, please note that this installation requires the use of a ladder, mast or RV mounting system on which to mount the outside antenna.
- Remove the three screws and washers that are attached to the outside antenna.
- Place the antenna through the hole on the top of the roof mount and reattach 3 screws and washers.
- Assemble the L-bracket with U-bolts, brackets, nuts and washers and secure to mast as shown in the illustration.
- Secure antenna to the horizontal plate of L-bracket using screws.
- Drill a hole for cable entry on the side of the vehicle, away from other cablesor pipes. Use a rubber gasket (sold separately) to protect the cable and your vehicle surface. Form a drip loop before entry and create a moisture barrier using a manufacturer approved permanent sealant.
CONNECT POWER AND VERIFY SUCCESSFUL OPERATION
- Inside the vehicle, connect the cable leading to the outside antenna to the port on the booster labeled “OUTSIDE.” Make sure that all connections are secure before powering on.
- Finish permanent cable installation by securing any loose cables inside the vehicle.
- Connect the AC power adapter (or 12V adapter) to the signal booster and plug it into power.
The Power LED will light, indicating that the signal booster is ready for use. Place a call in a location you have previously experienced poor signal and confirm that your phone is receiving a boosted signal. Normal operation is indicated by green LEDs (both flashing and solid). In the event red LEDs appear, antenna adjustments may be needed.
WARNING: The booster is rated for 6-15V input voltage. DO NOT use the booster with a higher voltage power supply. This can damage the booster and/or cause personal injury.
|Green||Solid||Indicates normal operation.|
|Green||Flashing||Normal operation. Indicates that Automatic Gain Control (AGC) is self-adjusting due to over-signal or antenna proximity|
|Red||Flashing||Indicates issues caused by overpowering or oscillation. Adjust your outside and inside antenna locations to maximize separation between them by increasing distance as well as adding obstructions.|
Note that the booster case may become warm during operation. This is normal.
|Signal booster has no power||Verify that the Power LED is ON. Connect the power supply to an alternate power source. Verify that the power source is operational and the fuse is intact. If it remains OFF, contact tech support at: 1-855-433-2291|
|After completing installation, signal coverage has not improved||Verify that cable connections are tightly fitted to the booster. Try further separating the antennas. Note: Bars are not always a reliable measure of signal. The best way to confirm signal coverage is the ability to place and hold a call.|
