There are loads of replacement IPC units available on eBay for your year Suburban. I too had been looking into this for mine before I traded and found that the computer in the 1500 suburbans is already configured for a trans temp gauge, it just doesn't actually have the gauge. You can get one added when you replace the IPC.
No programming should have to be done to support this, but you will need to send your old unit in exchange for the new. So you won't be able to drive it for however long that takes.
Get a scangauge2.
Or you can do this - works great too and is overall less expensive. But it sounds like you need IPC work done for your existing cluster anyway.
We had the same problem - stock mattress was too firm for us. First season we decided to try a thick topper. Just didn't cure the problem for us. So this spring we swapped the stock mattress for a queen innerspring w/pillowtop and couldn't be happier.
To each their own. Good luck.
Not sure about the mounting angle issue, but the mounting method on ours here in Maryland is a velcro-type of mount. So you can detach it and just hold it up to the glass in different places to see what works. I'd recommend the passenger help with that! :-P
We are able to have just one transponder and move it between vehicles as needed. There is a website we use to manage the vehicles allowed per transponder. I suppose you could have two separate transponders, but they would both register through the toll booth unless you pack the TOAD's in the radiation bag (have to seal it real good though or it may still get read.) I would think that the EZ-PASS on your motorhome would get charged for two additional axles when you have to TOAD. So you don't want the other transponder getting a charge too.
Fantastic reply! I don't mind the hairpins too much, so looks like I'll be headin' in via 211. And this will be our first time at the Luray Jellystone - glad to get some good feedback on it. Kids are exited. Thanks much.
We'll be heading from Severn, MD to the Jellystone in Luray Virginia in about 3 weeks. I'm not familiar with the stretch of US-211 beyond Warrenton that will take me into Luray. Some of the descriptions I've found online see like it might be a hairy ride towing a 35' travel trailer.
Just wondering if coming down 66 to Front Royal and then taking US-340 to Luray might make more sense? According to Google maps the distance and time traveled are not much different for either route.
Anyone familiar with the roads in this area?
