Cell service good but spotty - you'll be fine

Will be down on Monday afternoon. Section C50 as well. Have a single automatic step to sell as well as an extra control unit. Long story.

WIT Rally Internet Comments

- Winnebago free WiFi on grounds is working but interference from 100s of personal phones and hotspots with WiFi turned on is killing their system making it low speed and unusable in many locations.

- ATT and Verizon seem to have good cell site coverage for data and voice

- Sprint is good for voice but is roaming to Verizon for data - this triggers their 300 Megabyte roaming data limitation, so if on Sprint you may want to switch on your cellular data only when you absolutely need it while at WIT GNR

- No report for other carriers

I am using my ATT Connected Car Service with the ZTE Mobley Hot Spot and it's great. Currently speed testing at 12.9 Megabits per second down and 5.4 megabits per second up.

Jon, It was my first GNR and unfortunately I missed the speeches about Winnebago future plans. A major storm came through on the second night damaging the display and seminar tents and everything was closed down for the day including the nighttime entertainment. We also had rain on another day. From what I attended I thought it was well worth it. Just amazed that 600 of the 1000 coaches there was there for repairs of some sort. Also the number of golf carts zipping around was crazy.
