Phone App to control RV

We've got a 2017 CC 36CK2 5th wheel. It has the handheld remote to control the jacks and awnings and there's also the built in Android tablet in the control cabinet. I downloaded the OneControl app for my Android phone and thought i could use it to control the rv functions. However, I could never seem to get it to connect. Now I'm not even sure my trailer has "OneControl". Anybody have this same trailer and app up and running?

We have the same situation, but we are trying to get the remote to work at all. We followed instructions to pair it. it seemed to be done correctly. But only lights up red , when I push any button.
That phone app I tried to. I am sure there isnt wifi in the RV . Like they ask you to hook up with wifi. Does your remote work at all ?

Yes, the remote works. I just removed and reloaded the app and see that it has a wifi and bluetooth connection option. Not sure I've tried both options. I'm heading up to the storage yard to give it a try again. I also need to check the Android tablet that's in the control cabinet. I'm pretty sure that the on/off button is broke and I'll need to get a new tablet.

I would like to just get the remote to work without the tablet for starters

I hear ya. The leveler control pad on the outside of the trailer is flashing a red light (instead of green) and does not allow me to use the "autolevel" function. In order to reset it, I need to use the tablet to "abort" the error function. However, I think the tablet on/off button is broke and I won't be able to get the error cleared. I can still raise and lower the front jacks but can't autolevel the TT. Hate to have to the tablet out of a 2 month old trailer, but if that's what it takes, that's what will happen. Can we say "warranty"?

I use my iPhone and the trailer wifi with great success. To clear the red light error you will need to go into the manual to move the rear leveler legs after putting the front landing gear down.

The OneControl emits itís own WiFi signal. You should be able to see it on your phone in your WiFi settings. You should see MyRV_ followed by a series of numbers. This is the signal generated by your OneControl. Once you set your password, you should be able to connect with your OneControl through your app. My instructions are inside the cabinet over the kitchen sink. Once you find yours, follow the directions, and you should be able to connect. You use WiFi signal to connect, but that is not the same as internet connection.

I like the app because I can control most everything on my phone. When I drive up to the campsite at night, I can turn the lights on from the car. I can control the generator, lights, slides, and monitor all fluid and LP levels on the app. Once you figure it out, it is really nice.

Our CC has the same wifi setup. A fast blink on the outside on our coach only happens when the batteries are low on charge. Love the remote function...

I can see the wifi when trying to setup the OneControl but I don't currently have the password. I'll have to dig out all the paperwork and manuals we got when we purchased the trailer and see if I can find the wifi password.

Look around for a sticker with the information. I found two - one on the back wall of the cabinet over the kitchen sink and the other loose in the freezer door. Happy hunting.
