We added a Winegard Air 360+ to our 5th Wheel and last year we for a seasonal site but my ParK WIFI signal is "ugly"
Between the cedar trees (which I am told eat WIFI signals) the trailers next door and the mounting location of the Winegard Air 360+ on the back slope of the 5th wheel the signal is not good.
If I walk my cell phone to the front of my lot, I go from 5 to 100 speed. also, if I put my cell on a broom and get it 3 feet higher than the current mounting of the Winegard Air 360+ my signal also experienced significant speed increases.
So, I am wondering if the is a smart electronics person that might have solved this issue with an extension antenna and how to do it.
I think this doable, but no idea how and what is needed. (as well I can’t find a good circuit board diagram to see if there is an existing port I can tap into)

I dont have a preference to a soluition
I have the Winegaurd and it worked well for the last year traveling, but not the position is causing an issue. I also want to have protection behind a modem with the GW-1000
My Winegard 360+ is moutned on the 5th Wheel trailer but it seems has a bad signal/signial strenght as it is mounted 2/3 of the way back on the downward slope.
I am wondering if I can and how can I connect/add a external wifi antenna to the Winegard 360+ to the front of my trailer where I get 10X the WIFI speed for some strange and wonderful reason.

There surely is a way it could be done; afterall, there is both a cellular antenna and a wifi antenna somewhere inside that dome. The question is the skills and costs involved to make the mods. I doubt if anybody here has already done this, so you (or a friend) will have to dig inside and figure it out.
