Silly me.... Sorry about that. Here is what I got:
- 801245 60 dB Dual Band SOHO Amplifier - now upgraded with adjustable gain!
- 301133 Dual Band Outside Antenna, with built-in Spring for durability, includes 13.5 foot Cable.
- 901104 3-way mount for outside antenna, permits attachment to ladder or side view mirror.
- 301135 Indoor Panel Antenna.
- 951104 20-Foot RG58U Low Loss Coax Cable (N Male - FME Female), to connect indoor panel antenna to the amplifier.
- 859913 DC Power Supply for Cigarette outlet.
The heart of the kit is Wilson's 801245 Amplifier: a dual-band amplifier, now upgraded to 60dB gain, which, when installed with the included antennas, dramatically improves cell phone and data card reception. Used widely in Small Office/Home Office applications, this robust device provides just about the highest possible gain when it comes to mobile applications - it is THE choice for Ambulances, RV's, Boats and Truckers. The system supports multiple cell phones and data cards simultaneously (all connect wirelessly - no physical connection between phone/data card and the device is necessary).
Dual Band support means it will work with pretty much all North American carriers.
I bought the unit as a bundle on eBay as I got a good deal. This guy put all the stuff together you need. Wilson RV Kit 801245 Soho Cell Phone Booster Amp 841245 | eBay
The next issue was to find a better way to mount it. So, I decided to mount on the driver side on the side of the coach. This way i do not have a issue with the height on the antenna. I drilled 2 holes for the screws, spray painted the bracket and one hole for the cord. Sealed it up and mounted the antenna... and rand it right into the wall where the TV is. Then mounted the amp in the TV cabinet and hooked it up to the AC outlet there in the cabinet as you can see in the pic. Next, run the cable up the cabinet above and in the floor of the cabinet above the TV and out the side. Looks like a totally factory job wit this set up. Just took a couple hours and presto!!!! Great signal on the road.
Highly recommend this set up.
You can get it all on Amazon but you got to get it item by item. I liked the ebay root. Check out the reviews if the amp/. All great ones. Amazon.com: Wilson Electronics 801245 SOHO AG 60 Adjustable Gain Cell Phone Signal Booster: Cell Phones & Accessories
I paid $375 for the kit on eBay.... and sped a couple hours doing the work although any dealer can do it for you too.
