I'm finding more and more as I purchase stuff for the MH that they don't work as advertized and I wasted my money. From Wifi parts to water pressure gauges to sewer pipes. Maybe this thread will save someone from wasting their money.
Post the stuff that didn't work and the stuff you really like that does work.
Hfield Wi-fire wifi antenna. Made for inside and hooks up to your USB port. Totally useless. Couldn't get any signal until I disconnected it. $56 wasted
7dB Novatel Verizon USB760, Sprint Ovation U760, MC760 USB Modem External Antenna w/OEM SMK TS-9. For my Virgin mobile air card. Doesn't make a difference if it's plugged in or not. $39 wasted
Smart Drain Sewer System. Looked real good but mine leaks from every connection. Maybe I got a bad one and I'm sure I can't return it. $78 wasted
Digital outdoor tv antenna. Worked for 2 weeks and died. Here is the one I bought: $40 wasted
DIGITAL DTV VHF UHF OUTDOOR HDTV HD ROTOR TV FM ANTENNA | eBay
Things that work good:
Jefa-Tech wifi antenna 5.5' with router/repeater. This thing is amazing and pulls in even the weakest signals and amplifies them.
See my post here:
Finally found a WIFI antenna that works!
Conntek RV Y Adatper Cord with 50 Amp Male Plug To 30 Amp RV Female Connector (3-Feet). Was the least expensive one I found $99 and got it on Amazon.com good quality
Sony DVP-SR200P/B DVD Player, Black
. A real small DVD player that fit over my flat screen in the front and works great. Got it on Amazon
Also the Progressive power surge protector. Works great.
So, I hope this helps others out when buying "stuff" for our RV's and MH's.
