Ok so dealer was full of it. I downloaded the pdf for the myrv system and this is what I found.

NOTE: the wireless hub cannot be used as a Wi-Fi hotspot. The my RV tablet is Wi-Fi capable and may be used to access the internet , BUT a usable Wi-Fi connection MUST be available.

There was a discussion on this a few months ago and if I remember correctly, the WiFi is simply a connection method between the tablet and the RV to allow the tablet to operate some items in the RV. If is not an access point to the internet.

Maybe your salesperson sold Chevy vehicles in his former life! Some new Chevys have built in Internet access that requires a monthly fee. LOL

I need to know about the unit that came with the trailer. Thank you for your time.
