Summer is here. Is your RV ready?

That’s right friends, summer is officially here. We talk about Memorial Day as if it were the first day of summer. Technically it’s today, the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.  We’re all set for three months of long, bright nights, warm days, and fun in the sun.

RVing, the real national pastime

I know everyone says baseball is our national pastime. It is, if you mean “watching baseball.” Most of us don’t actually play baseball. On the other hand, a lot of folks head off in the RV for the summer. Are you one of them?

Even if you’re out on the road, the last thing you want to do is leave the world behind. That idea went out with flip phones. No, you want to be connected and you want the best entertainment the world has to offer. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to get great entertainment in your RV.

Satellite TV

Forget the headlines. I’m here to tell you, satellite TV isn’t going anywhere. DIRECTV and DISH are still the world leaders in providing entertainment everywhere, no matter where. That includes your RV. It’s easier than ever to get hundreds of channels of live television no matter where you are in the country you are.

There are options for every budget. If you want to aim the dish once you get to the RV park, you can use a simple tripod system. Or, go with a permanently mounted dish that tracks satellites even while you’re driving. There are so many plans and options now that you’ll definitely find what you’re looking for.

Over-the-air Antenna

If you’re looking for a “back-to-nature” kind of experience, consider an over-the-air antenna for your RV. That may not seem like the “nature walk” your grandfather talked about, but there’s definitely something about connecting to the local area and watching in real time.

It’s easy to put up an antenna when you park for the night and get great live TV the way it was intended. Settle in for a night of just seeing what’s on, and go with the flow. This antennas is very inexpensive and it stows away easily when it’s not being used.

OK, give into the lure of the phone

Yeah, it’s true that most of us can’t give up our phones when we’re out on the road. So why try? If you’re looking to keep streaming while you’re out on the road, you’ll need a nice strong signal.

This new cell booster from weBoost mounts permanently to the RV and pulls signals out of the air when no other booster can. It’s the most powerful mobile booster yet, and it’s a must-have for your RV, especially if you want to park in the woods.

While you’re thinking about the phone, why not upgrade to the latest phone and unlimited plan from AT&T? Our team at Signal Connect can hook you up with everything you need, and in some cases we can even hand deliver the phone to you. This is the service you deserve when you’re getting ready to go out on the road.
