    I have been using RVLife app for about two years. In that time I have only been asked to “check in” to my campsite three times out of more than 20 locations. I must be missing something on the app. I search and search for that button or menu choice but cannot find anything. I did Ray in Palo Duro Canyon last week, no cell service at the campsite, so I get why I can’t check in there, but now I’m in Branson with great cell service but can’t seem to find out how I check in here. Any advice?

    There are many differences in the app and the online platform. I started using the online platform.

    The check in function "fires) when you have the app open and are within close range of the park. It relies on your location info so if you have location service off, it doesn't work. If you are using wifi, it may not work.

    There are regular updates and added function to the app as we make improvements. Recently, Android auto compatibility was released and there is more functionality coming. :)

    I've found the same thing. Other than routing and finding campgrounds, the app is useless, to us. The web based computer platform has all of the options though I'm not sure it was worth the annual subscription price.
