Can you use the weBoost Destination RV at home?

Have you heard of the weBoost Destination RV cell phone signal booster? It’s a cell booster designed specifically to be used while your RV is parked. It’s the right choice for someone who gets good cell service on the road but then finds themselves in campgrounds with poor service at night.

The secret to the Destination RV is an outdoor antenna that you raise on its own dedicated mast. It usually only takes about 5-10 minutes to get it set up once you’re parked for the night. It just becomes part of your routine like hooking up your power, water, and waste lines.

Why choose the weBoost Destination RV?

For those who haven’t yet bought a cell booster for their RVs, here’s what you need to know. The law restricts vehicle cell boosters to a maximum output of 45dB. That’s usually enough while you’re in motion. This restriction is there to make sure your cell booster doesn’t interfere with someone else’s, in case the two of you are in traffic together. It makes sense and it’s a good move.

However, residential boosters can have power up to 70dB, which is more than one hundred times more powerful. You might want or need that extra power if you’re in a campground. So, you choose the Destination RV, which only works while parked. It takes advantage of the rules for stationary boosters to give you that extra power. Make sense?

But can you use one at home?

There’s nothing wrong with being thrifty. There’s nothing wrong with trying to make use of what you have. And, if that’s the sort of person you are, I have good news for you.

You can use a weBoost Destination RV cell booster at home. The Destination RV is essentially a Home Multiroom cell booster that has been adapted to work with RVs. weBoost gives you the extra hardware you need to mount the antenna at your campsite, but the amplifier itself and the antenna hardware is basically the same.

If you want to use the Destination RV at home and in your RV, you can simply hook it up at home as if you were in an RV. Or, if you want a cleaner, easier way to make your booster do double duty, buy a duplicate set of antennas from Solid Signal. Choose weBoost or Wilson Electronics antennas with 75-ohm F connectors and you can use them at home. Keep the antennas that came with the Destination RV in your RV. Then, all you have to do is bring the booster with you when you travel. It’s like having two cell boosters for the price of one!
