RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

I was digging around in the kitchen slide tracing the entertainment cable I need to cut into. If all goes well it'll just be a couple feet to the knife switch. Isolating exactly which cable it is, since there are 3 identical ones, may be the hard part. I can't work on it now.. it's just too darn hot.

RE: Wa. State people, What is here?

Might be a good place to sleep for the night?I've driven by there many times. Google's street view shows the access road with a locked gate on it, a short ways past the outhouse. I can't find any way to even get to those roads.

RE: Interesting Fridge problem solved!

The coach has a Xantrex Freedom 458 3000w inverter/charger that I was a little surprised to see didn't seem to be phased by the polarity problem.Pun notwithstanding, the 458 should have thrown an error.. I know my old Prosine 2.0 would have. I'm still confused as to why a 12v refer board would care about 120v polarity.

RE: When traveling avoid ATM which can snatch your card

.. programming should have prevented him from switching to service mode mid-transaction as well, or alternatively returned the card.That seems like a no-brainer to me!Bank employees can not only get fired for not following regulations but they can be prosecuted as well.It darn hard to imagine a bank employee getting fired for giving a customer back his non-stolen valid card. It's also hard to imagine a government regulation saying that any card confiscated during a malfunction of the ATM is considered stolen. Then again, it's the federal gov't, so I guess it shouldn't be that big of a surprise.

RE: When traveling avoid ATM which can snatch your card

Would the safest alternative be to use credit card in grocery store and request cash back?I wouldn't sweat using a DC. Have you had other incidents with them that make you fearful? Seems somebody's always posting something to make us all run for the hills. I don't know if cash back works on CCs. I once lost my ATM to a machine because I waited to long to retrieve the card..and what did you do?You were incorrect in addressing the issue as you have posted here!Is that a joke? What should he have done.. reported it stolen by an ATM?

RE: HD DVR dedicated inverter

did you ever get in touch with anyone at Bestconverter to see if they will make things right for you? They claim "lifetime support".No. They did not respond, and, their return policy is pretty clear. I guess the only leg I'd have to stand on is "you recommended it."

RE: Interesting Fridge problem solved!

I haven't either. Isn't the control board 12v? Interesting first post.

RE: When traveling avoid ATM which can snatch your card

Someone stole my ATM card and tried to use it at bank ATM. The ATM was getting serviced and for some reason locked on the card and wouldn't give it back to the thief. Whew! That ATM saved me from losing a lot of money.Someone also knew your PIN? Was the card kept because of the servicing, or the report of theft? I wonder if the thief went into the bank and demanded the card back. It seems ridiculous that an ATM would go into maintenance during a transaction in the first place - let alone keep a perfectly legitimate card.

RE: MDT-2003 FREIGHTLINER SPORTCHASSIS FL60

No need for a 2-year wait...You just have to put out the effort to search 'em out!LOL, right, like I know what I'm doing! Then find a builder to have it singled and look decent. Price starts climbing. I found what I want in a ready-to-roll MDT. I hope the OP can too.

RE: When traveling avoid ATM which can snatch your card

A lot of policies that banks have are mandated by federal regulation because fraud is so prevalent.I guess that's my point.

RE: When traveling avoid ATM which can snatch your card

Stuff happens, and this issue wasted some valuable travel time.I'm sure what happened is a very rare event. However, sounds like an incompetent bank manager who couldn't simply verify your story. Many banks are run like government offices. "It makes no sense, it's just our policy."

RE: MDT-2003 FREIGHTLINER SPORTCHASSIS FL60

Google: I-shiftAFAIK that xmission is the only fully automatic. Since that's what a lot of RV HDT buyers want, they're kinda hard to find. I wasn't in the mood to wait 2 years for a truck.

RE: SL3 SWM Slimeline single line triple LNB failed?

That's good to know. It seems to be a rare event that an LNB fails.

RE: MDT-2003 FREIGHTLINER SPORTCHASSIS FL60

Good advice - also suggest spending some time on the Escapees HDT forum.The MDT forum doesn't get much traffic, from what I've seen. The HDT guys figure if you're going the MDT route, you may as well go all the way. My biggest problem with the HDT was the paucity of automatic transmissions. No stick for me. That, and the fact I don't care if I can climb a mountain at 65mph.

RE: best way to run residential fridge on limited shore power?

Yeah I was worried about "residential refrigerator".. Maybe they forgot the word 'size'.

RE: Why can't I get new camping card?

Good Sam should get with the times and have an app with the card on it. Then convince campground owners it's legitimate.
