SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV Kit

Hi. I purchased the SureCall Fusion2Go 3.0 RV Kit and preparing to install. I've been reading various posts and comments about this (as well as for the WeBoost product, which I think is similar to what I bought). I'm trying to educate myself!

Our situation me and my wife both work from home, and sometimes from our motorhome. We have two MiFi hotspots. One is AT&T and the other is Sprint. Both are unlimited data and both work great for us, as long as we have decent signal.

We use the MiFi devices for laptop, wifi calling on our iphones, and TV streaming.

For the cell booster products, I have read about the importance of having your device (iPhone, for example) close, or a certain optimal distance, from the internal antenna the cell booster products have. I read that many people don't like the cell boosters b/c of this, some returned them. Their frustration was having to move close to the internal antenna to get a great signal. I get it, I wouldn't like that either.

But for us, I'm thinking we may be fine b/c we use our MiFi hotspot devices. So in other words, I don't think we will have to have our iPhones in certain distance from the antenna. Instead, I'm thinking we just need to make sure our MiFi hotspots are within a certain, optimal distance from the antenna. As long as the MiFi signal is strong, we can connect from anywhere in the coach to the MiFi wifi network. We do that today. Does that make sense?

For us, the hotspots almost always do just fine. But occasionally we go somewhere with the signal outside the coach is okay, but if inside the coach not so good. I have on occasion even temporarily placed one of the hotspots outside, on a lawn chair or on my truck bed, or something to get better signal for a call or something.


Before I install the SureCall Fusion2Go Cell booster permanently, I plan to test it as best I can. But would love some feedback on above. Wondering if what I have outlined makes sense if others think I'm on the right track here.

Then, the WiFi Ranger:
In addition to above our 2017 coach (new to us) came with a WiFi Ranger installed however we have not done anything with that. From my understanding, the wife ranger is meant to find a wifi signal outside the coach, amplify it, and bring the signal better into the coach. Also a benefit is that all my devices (TVs, iPhones, Laptops) always stay connected to one device (the wife ranger) and when I need to change wifi network, I just it once for the wifi ranger. Does that sound about right?

For people that often change their wifi network, perhaps every time they go to a campsite they want to connect to their wifi... maybe the wifi ranger is good. But for us, since we exclusively use our mifi hotspots, I'm don't see how the wifi ranger will help us. I'm I missing something? Is there some other benefit of the wifi ranger I'm not considering?

BTW, both of our MiFi hotspots (ATT and Sprint) are unlimitted data. We have not had any issues with throttle back on these. The ONLY issue we have is when we are somewhere with weak signal. Thus, hoping this SureCall Fusion device will help us in those areas.

I'd love some feedback, thank you!
