Question Lippert myRV® Tablet Questions!

Okay, I'm totally confused about this Tablet added to the new motor homes. I was looking at the 3011DS that includes this OneTouch Tablet. How in the world can you operate the motor home's systems if you are in the middle of nowhere with no wifi available? Is there an option to override this system and operate the slides, lights, oven, pumps, etc. manually. If not, how would you ever be able to take your motor home to areas without wifi? I don't get it.

I may be wrong but I thought it's Bluetooth.
Can't you download an app to your phone and operate systems via Bluetooth?

My lippert tablet in my trailer is run off wifi from a router that is built into the trailer. Essentially my trailer has it's own wifi. It doesn't connect to the internet though

That makes sense. . I have a router with my own network name and password in my rig. You do not need Internet to connect to it

As mentioned above, it has a hub that is powered by the batteries, and that creates it's own Wi-Fi network, but isn't connected to the internet.

There also should be manual switches for each device so that if some part of the network fails (i.e. receiver, remote, hub, etc.), you can still operate the devices.

There is a Wi-Fi router built into the motorhome. You do not need an outside Wi-Fi source to run this system.

I love techy stuff wish I could add that as a mod. That is a great upgrade on the new units.
