Furrion antenna that integrates 4G LTE and Wi-Fi from Keystone

Has anybody heard about the new Furrion antenna that integrates 4G LTE and Wi-Fi with standard VHF/UHF/AM/FM reception and acts as an in unit Wi-Fi signal booster. It comes installed on the new Montana's? I'm curious about how well it works and how to get it fired-up in an RV park. What has been your experience?

The part to make it work is $360.00.
I would like to know if it works and worth buying ?

Our 20th anniversary did not get all of the bells and whistles. So we did not get the LTE WiFi booster.

If you have say a Verizon jetpack you are supposed to be able to just move your sim card into it. As far as how good it works, I have not heard from anyone who has one.

All 20th Anniversary Editions are wired for the Wi-Fi systems. You need to by the router which lists for $360.00. I wheeled & dealed had it thrown in. Some where in your unit you will see where cover slides off & router slides in.

Double check, all Keystones came prewired. Works in conjunction with your tv antenna.

As long as the Wi-Fi system asks only for a password it works great. If the park gives you an individual access code, the system will not route you to that area to input it making the system useless. Furrion charges too much per gigs to use the internet. Would love to have it added to my Verizon account. Still checking into that.

Just Installed the Furrion Access WiFi router
It was easy to install and setup.
just tested at my house it picks up my WiFi That my laptop doesn't pickup in my Montana.
With the Furrion Access turned on I have full strength.
Will test at a Campground next weekend.

No just the Furrion WiFI router.
The 2019 Keystone RV's come pre wired for the Furrion wifi.
Got it from Amazon Prime $359.00 no tax no shipping.

Source for WiFi?

Sounds good to me. I'm very curious and interested in the Furrion option. My Montana also has the Furrion WiFI System pre-installed. Which data plan is your Furrion connecting to? Is it 5G ready? Better than cell phone data sharing via Personal Hotspot? Can you watch NetFlix?
I'm asking a lot but if you know the answers I'm very interested.
Thanks.

In my opinion it is not worth Furrion gig package. As a WI FI extender works great. Still researching if I can add it to my Verizon account for unlimited use. Following future comments

or just get the Verizon pre paid jetpack plan, plan: 28366, buy your jetpack at whatever the price is 99-199 I would imagine, pay 65 a month with auto pay and turn on and off as needed. The plan 28366 is truly unlimited, with throttling only occurring during network congestion, no hard or soft data caps.

I have a jetpack, but this discussion is about the Furrion. If Verizon can access the Furrion then you would have a stronger, probably more secure, system. A weak Verizon signal might not be picked up with jetpack inside RV, but the Furrion would/could boost that signal making it a great signal.

I'm a bit confused. I have a Furrion box underneath the antenna in the bedroom of my new unit. Does this $360 part replace that box, slide into the box, or does it need to be installed somewhere else? Although I'm not a fan of the Furrion plans, a wifi booster to connect to the park wifi would be worth the trouble for me. Thanks in advance.

What you see see is a cover it slides off.
Mine went to the right. The extender slides on in place of the cover,

I just put the one I ordered off Amazon right in. Fit like a glove. Thank you again. Just testing it out, I was able to get on the hotspot at the gas station down the road a few blocks. I was impressed.
