RE: Replacement fridge

I replaced my fridge with another of the same brand (Dometic). Same size, nothing to modify. Take the old one out, slip in the new one...turn it on. Fast and simple. The only difference was the old one came with an ice maker, which after the first trip, wife demanded I remove it. (Took up too much room in the freezer, she said...so I did.) The new one does not have an ice maker.i don't know about yours, but you do that with something like a NORCOLD 1200 you'll wind up with a bill north of $4000, and a fridge that's still broken. Fix the old one right for ~$1500 all in

RE: Replacement fridge

If you decide to go with a replacement cooling unit, check out RV Cooling Unit Warehouse and do it yourself. Residential is good as long as it fits and/ or you understand the limitations power-wise

RE: RV Fridge Cooling Unit

There is no way I would buy a remanfactured unit for something as big as the NORCOLD 1200, and I sure hope you didn't either for lots of reasons easily found here. There is a reason people are going to the Pines/ Amish units.

RE: Generators-> Standard vs Inverter. Power Quality Concerns

To my knowledge, none of the built in Generac or Onan RV generators are inverters.The Onan QD series are inverter

RE: Generators-> Standard vs Inverter. Power Quality Concerns

Before the Honda inverter came out, that's all there was and we all survived those dark days pretty well

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

If you have the powered wall plate and nobody has changed the antenna out, then it has an internal amp built into the head of the antenna and it HAS to be powered. Not powering will cause a significant loss of signal, far more than the gain it provides. There are other options to power the antenna over that plate. You can use the BOMB mentioned above, or better yet install a Sensar Pro that provides power to the head, an adjustable gain distriubution amp, dual output splitter, and input switch. Oh yeah, it's by far the best pointing tool out there.

RE: Total loss of picture on Satellite???

I have never heard of an LED light taking out a signal running over HDMI between receiver and TV. Could you help me with this?he said nothing about HDMI, only that he lost pix when he turned on the light. It's possible that input went dead but there's no reason not to reverse diagnose the problem

RE: Scorpion Hunting / Bottled Water Sterility Maintenance

And a side question: what about these super intense UV strobes being used in hospital rooms to "sterilize" the room once the patient is gone?

RE: Refrigerator

How old is it? Is it a 1200, N8 or N6 series? go to norcoldclassaction.com you may be able to make a claim. You have until the 26th to do it, you have nothing to lose and may get an extra 3 year extended warranty out of it. Something is not right with it obviously.those are for defective cooling units. This is the opposite problemNo its not, you do not need to have experienced a problem to file a claim, just already own one. You stand to receive a 3 yr. extended warranty with a claim on file. Mine is working fine and I filed.Agreed, but the OP's problem has nothing to do with the basis of the lawsuit, and that is cooling unit failure regardless of wether one can file. Their "point" system makes no sense either

RE: Total loss of picture on Satellite???

After turning the TV off for an hour, and called Dish. As I was on hold, I turned the TV back on, and had a picture again. So this mystery continues.you didn't answer the question on the light? This wouldn't be the first time that a noisy LED has taken out satellite receiption.

RE: Scorpion Hunting / Bottled Water Sterility Maintenance

You still need to finish the ACME Home Do-It-Yourself De-Fib Machine now that you did all the Beta testing yourself

RE: tpms systems

wolfe 10 I tow my Frontier maybe 3K a year and usually never go more than 250 miles between stops. It would be easy to just turn the key during a lunch break and take a look. A leak or blowout on a toad is not that tramatic if it happens. Thanks for all the input.except you likely will never know it happened. Likely ? No
