The video roadtrek showed originally was at a campground. The connect system AND the tablet used were both connected to the campgrounds wifi.

However i have never seen a CELL connection done in the usa that succeeded.

I assume you want to access from your CELL phone screen using a Cell connection.

If you want this TS but don't care if you have a working connect system or working Voltstart- i would go for it but offer less.

I don't know of any other issues that other roadtreks don't sometimes have.


You should perform a search of this site on the TS. we have had several disatisfied owners-mostly because of the inability of Connect to work on a cell system.

However i warn you-search here doesn't always get good results


when roadtrek first put connect in TS the plan was to offer it in other models-
they never have

we have the deal in and hoping to finalize this week.... Thanks for all the input! We will not put the money into the Volt Start (interesting that another dealership in the same chain said their location will not install after market any more) The connect unit was recalled on this unit and has been replaced... we will see what happens

are you sure a new one will solve the issue. the problem was cell connection not the device itself.

If you don't care about connect go ahead. But if you do i would insist they have a working connect before you finalize deal.

I am honestly not sure it will fix the issue but for us with the price we got it is not a deal breaker and it still has 4 years of warranty so if something is not fixable I guess we will see what is offered. I think the info you gave us helped us to go in eyes wide open.
Have you seen an ability to upgrade batteries being helpful with being able to run things like the air con? If we are not putting the additional $ into the Volt start we may consider so other upgrade
