Found it

Ok I got the SSID and password configured on the tablet. The only issue I have now, is that the signal coming from the hub seems to die about the time I get to either the front or the back of the camper......I cannot go over to the side with my slides. It loses the signal every time. At least in my driveway. I'll try it again this weekend when we go camping. So far, I'm not overly impressed with this thing. It should have a much stronger signal than that!

You may need to add an external antenna. If the router antenna is attached by a connector , you can remove it and buy an external antenna on a length of coax. Another option is to add a remote antenna and mount to a window on the slide side of the unit.

That's a good idea. I actually have an old wifi extender in my upstairs bedroom that I think might do the trick. Just need to plug it into a 120 outlet, but then it would only work when I'm connected to power at either my house or at a campground. When looking at what is currently installed, I have not seen an antenna. There was a photo of what is installed that someone posted earlier. I'll take another look though.

There should be a hub and a range extender installed in the RV according to LCI documents. Have you located both the hub and range extender? If so, check the range extender to make sure it's powered on.

I will have to try to locate the range extender. So far I have only found the hub that was in the cabinet over the kitchen counter. I looked through the documentation that the dealer gave me, but so far I have not located anything about this system. Does anyone know where I can find some?

There are several documents on the LCI site (installation, configuration, etc.). You can search for MyRV link and it'll direct you to the LCI pages. At the bottom of the main page are the links to the documents.

The Android Tablet???

The router extender whatever you want to call it is behind the trash can in the cabinet above the hot water tank not easy to get to if you weigh 230 lbs. You pull out the trash can then crawl in the door you will see a fuse panel control board on the left just behind the piece of paneling that separates the hot water tank the router is mounted right above it on the inside of the outside wall. When I change mine out, due to it failing, I moved it up into the trash can compartment closer to the front door easier to get to and also seemed to improve signal strength. I walk all around our camper when setting up or putting up. It's all I use.
