THE ALUMINUM CASING OF YOUR SIGNAL BOOSTER WILL ADJUST TO THE
TEMPERATURE OF ITS ENVIRONMENT, BUT IS DESIGNED TO PROTECT THE SIGNAL
BOOSTER TECHNOLOGY. FOR EXAMPLE, IN THE SUMMER, THE SIGNAL BOOSTER CASE
MAY BE AS HOT AS 150 DEGREES INSIDE YOUR VEHICLE. THESE HIGH TEMPERATURES
WILL NOT DAMAGE THE SIGNAL BOOSTER, NOR DO THEY POSE A FIRE RISK TO THE
VEHICLE. AGAIN, BE SURE TO PLACE YOUR SIGNAL BOOSTER IN A LOCATION WITH
ADEQUATE VENTILATION AND AWAY FROM DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR MOISTURE.
THE DRIVE 4G-X SIGNAL BOOSTER MAY REMAIN ON, IN VEHICLES WHOSE 12V DC POWER
SOURCES DO NOT AUTOMATICALLY SHUTDOWN WHEN THE VEHICLE IS TURNED OFF.
THIS COULD RESULT IN DISCHARGING THE VEHICLES BATTERY IN ONE TO TWO DAYS.

______
Step 1: Mount Outside
Antenna
Determine where you want to have the outside antenna on
your RV. Mount outside antenna to a pole or ladder so that the
entire outside antenna is above the roof line of the RV and
clear of other metal obstructions. NOTE: This must be in a location within reach of the booster with the
20’ coax cable (installed in Step 4).

antenna location
NOTE: Keep in mind to stay below the max height limit allowed by law, which
varies from state to state (generally 14’ in western states and 13’6” in
eastern states).

Step 2: Drill Hole
Drill a 1 inch hole toward the top of the RV that goes into the
desired location. Do not put this hole on the top of the RV.
WARNING: Be sure to stay clear of any power, pipes, etc. that may
be damaged.

Keep track of the network (3G or 4G) phone is connected to.
•
Any signal readings you take are valid for that phone’s carrier. To get readings
from other carriers, you’ll need phones from each carrier.

______
Light Patterns
Solid Green
This indicates that your booster is functioning properly and there are no issues with
installation.
Blinking Red, Then Solid Green
This indicates that one or more of the booster bands has reduced power due
to a feedback loop condition called oscillation. This is a built in safety feature
to prevent harmful interference with a nearby cell tower. If you are already
experiencing the desired signal boost, then no further adjustments are necessary.
If you are not experiencing the desired boost in coverage then refer to the
Troubleshooting section below.
Solid Red
This is due to a feedback loop condition called oscillation. This is a built in safety
feature that causes a band to shut off to prevent harmful interference with a nearby
cell tower. Refer to Troubleshooting section below.
Light Off
If the Drive 4G-X Signal Booster’s light is off, verify your power supply has power.
NOTE: The Signal Booster can be reset by disconnecting and reconnecting
the power supply.
After troubleshooting you must initiate a new power cycle by disconnecting and
then reconnecting power to the Booster.

______
Troubleshooting
FIXING BLINKING OR SOLID RED ISSUES
This section is only applicable if the booster is red or blinking red and you are not
experiencing the desired signal boost.
1
Unplug the Booster’s power supply.
2
Relocate the inside and outside antenna further from each other. The objective
is to increase the separation distance between them, so that they will not
create this feedback condition discussed before.
3
Plug power supply back in.
4
Monitor the indicator light on your booster. If, after a few seconds of ‘power
on’, a solid or blinking red light appears, repeat steps 1 through 3. Increase the
separation distance until the condition is corrected and/or desired coverage
area is achieved. Note: Horizontal separation of the two antennas typically
requires a shorter separation distance than perpendicular separation.
5
If you are having any difficulties while testing or installing your booster, contact
our weBoost Customer Support team for assistance (866.294.1660).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What hours can I contact customer support?
Customer Support can be reached monday thru friday by calling 866.294.1660, or
through our support site at support.weboost.com.
Why do I need to create distance between the booster and the antenna?
Antennas connected to a booster create spheres of signal. When these spheres
overlap, a condition called oscillation occurs. Oscillation can be thought of as noise,
which causes the booster to shut down to prevent damage. The best way to keep
these spheres of signal from overlapping is to maximize separation between the
Booster and Antenna.

Safety Guidelines
Use only the power supply provided in this package. Use of a non-weBoost product may damage
your equipment.
The Signal Booster unit is designed for use in an indoor, temperature-controlled environment
(less than 150 degrees Fahrenheit). It is not intended for use in attics or similar locations subject to
temperatures in excess of that range.
The desktop antenna must have at least 3’ of separation distance from all active users. All inside
panel and dome antennas must have at least 6’ of separation distance from all active users, and low
profile antennas must have at least 1.5’ separation distance from all active users.
Connecting the Signal Booster directly to the cell phone with use of an adapter will damage the
cell phone.
RF Safety Warning: Any antenna used with this device must be located at least 8 inches from all
persons.
AWS Warning: The Outside Antenna must be installed no higher than 31 feet 9 inches (10 meters)
above ground.
This is a CONSUMER device.
BEFORE USE, you meet all requirements set out in CPC-2-1-05.
BEFORE USE, you MUST REGISTER THIS DEVICE with your wireless provider and have your
provider’s consent. Most wireless providers consent to the use of signal boosters. Some providers
may not consent to the use of this device on their network. If you are unsure, contact your provider.
You MUST operate this device with approved antennas and cables as specified by the manufacturer.
Antennas MUST be installed at least 20 cm (8 inches) from any person.
You MUST cease operating this device immediately if requested by the FCC, ISED or a licensed
wireless service provider.
WARNING. E911 location information may not be provided or may be inaccurate for calls served by
using this device.

CELL PHONE SIGNAL BOOSTER DRIVE 4G-X RV
______
(SPECIFICATIONS cont.)
The term “IC” before the radio certification number only signifies that Industry Canada technical specifications
were met.
Each Signal Booster is individually tested and factory set to ensure FCC compliance. The Signal Booster cannot
be adjusted without factory reprogramming or disabling the hardware. The Signal Booster will amplify, but not
alter incoming and outgoing signals in order to increase coverage of authorized frequency bands only. If the
Signal Booster is not in use for five minutes, it will reduce gain until a signal is detected. If a detected signal is
too high in a frequency band, or if the Signal Booster detects an oscillation, the Signal Booster will automatically
turn the power off on that band. For a detected oscillation the Signal Booster will automatically resume normal
operation after a minimum of 1 minute. After 5 (five) such automatic restarts, any problematic bands are
permanently shut off until the Signal Booster has been manually restarted by momentarily removing power from
the Signal Booster. Noise power, gain, and linearity are maintained by the Signal Booster’s microprocessor.
The Manufacturer’s rated output power of this equipment is for single carrier operation. For situations when
multiple carrier signals are present, the rating would have to be reduced by 3.5 dB, especially where the output
signal is re-radiated and can cause interference to adjacent band users. This power reduction is to be by
means of input power or gain reduction and not by an attenuator at the output of the device.
This device complies with Part 15 of FCC rules. Operation is subject to two conditions: (1) This device may not
cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept any interference received, including interference
that may cause undesired operation. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by weBoost could void
the authority to operate this equipment.
