  1. I understand this change, but what frustrates me is the lack of communication from FMCA on a program for which we are paying $50 a month. Why couldn't they at least send an email to all Tech Connect + members informing us of this change? Or is there some communication that others are receiving that I am missing out on? I am happy to be part of FMCA, plan to be a member for many years, and believe it is a great organization trying to do the right thing. But it is disappointing that FMCA may be getting a bad name due to poor communication and poor tech support.
  2. We had good experience with the FMCA Roadside when we had a blowout on a 5th wheel trailer tire on I-74 in Illinois, not far from Galesburg. The technician on the phone was competent, and located a really good truck tire service company. The guy showed up in a half hour and quickly changed to the spare. We were back on the road within 90 minutes of when I made the call. Overall a good experience. I will keep the FMCA roadside. By the way, I got all 4 tires changed to new Goodyear Endurance at the next opportunity!
  3. I have the Sprint Tech Connect plan using the Mifi 8000. When I am in an Extended Network area the display shows Sprint but is exceedingly slow, with download speeds up to 110k (that's right, 110k, not 110 M). I have a strong signal of 4 bars. Does anyone know if this is the best that can be expected in the extended network areas? I've ran into this in a few locations and it is disappointing. The system works great when we are in a genuine Sprint coverage area. Thanks!
  4. Just in case someone looks at this topic in the future, I will provide an update. I got in touch with FMCA, and they are sending me the Inseego MIfi 8000 hotspot as expected, and I will return the Franklin T9. They said in the future it would need to be changed out for the Mifi 2000 which is 5G compatible, but at least I have a higher end hotspot for a while. As always, it is good to work with the capable support persons at FMCA.
  5. I just initiated my FMCA Tech Connect plan this week and the hotspot I recieved is the Franklin T-9. Reviews I have seen on it are lukewarm. Has anyone else been using this on the FMCA plan? How is the performance? In particular we are interested in reception in fringe areas. Unfortunately it does not have antenna connectors. When I called in they said we'd get the Mifi 8000 but that didn't happen. Thanks!
