25FKS WIFI RANGER router location?

Does anyone know where the router on a 2018 Microlite 25FKS is actually located? I know where the power switch is and the outside antenna but where is the router?

Thanks

Jim S

I have not removed the panel to check this out so it is only a guess. My WiFi Ranger antenna is located about 6" toward the center of the trailer and 4" back from the leading edge of the refrigerator vent on the roof of the trailer. Inside the trailer above the refrigerator is a panel. I believe the WiFi Ranger lives behind there and that is adjacent to my entertainment center.

When I remove a panel from the entertainment center to install a Blu-Ray player it was held in with staples from the back side. I was able to re-staple it working through the hole for the head unit. I am not sure how to reinstall the panel over the refrigerator if I knock it out.

Thanks GrayGhost.

I learned that the OEM version of the WIFI Ranger (called a Sky3 model) does NOT have a separate router. The entire unit (antenna & router) is mounted on the roof.

Agreed the Sky3 and maybe other models are all in one... router and ab
Antenna on the roof.when Sky3 is powered on it glows a green light in the roof.

On my service switch panel is a small unmarked switch.
That is the wifi Sky3 switch.
Under the panel is a wifi sticker with login info. Dont lose this.
You can't blow it up or hurt it, so don't be afraid or configuring it. It either works or you set back to default and start over.

The wifiRanger only repeats what it hears. If you are on the fringe Ranger can connect but could still be slow depending on distance and congestion.
If very weak or no signal ranger can't do much.
I love mine, I have house wireless in camper.

My 2019 26RKWS only has the antenna on the roof. If the router is part of the antenna it must be on the underside of the roof.

The OEM version is the Sky3 DC - it is all included in the roof mounted box. There is no separate router box, unless you have the Sky3 Pack.

Correction: I got up on the roof today and found the WiFi Ranger antenna/router. What I miss identified was the AM/FM whip antenna. Now take into account the batwing TV antenna and all of a sudden I have communication central taking place on my roof.
