RE: Drivers Seat Armrest

Thanks Craig. I’ll try to check that out. Having to start hurricane prep today. One of the joys of living in Florida! ?????

RE: Norcold on Inverter

Yeah, I have used it and left the propane on many times. I was taking the NRVTA home study course and they recommended leaving the propane off for safety. That was right after the part on converters and inverters. It got me thinking, which may or may not be a good thing, LOL. Thanks for the response!

Drivers Seat Armrest

2007 Winnebago Voyage. The armrest on the left side of the driver’s seat let go and drops all the way down. It lifts up normally. I figured out how to remove it and nothing seems to be broken. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Norcold on Inverter

I am concerned about running my Norcold 1200 refer on the onboard inverter. 2007 Winnebago Voyage. I believe the inverter is 600 watts and the refer draws 2.9 amps on 110, or about 330 watts. This way I could run the refer driving with the gas off. Any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated.

Temporary Cell Service

I work in a position where I need to be available by phone, text, or email all the time. My employer provides an iPhone on AT&T’s First Net. Most places we camp are solid and sometimes I do use an amplifier. My problem is one place we camp is in a mountain valley and has a Verizon tower, nothing else, even amplified. For about one week a year, I need access to Verizon for cell, text, and limited data. I have two questions. 1. Is there a reasonable way to get a “burner” phone that will hotspot or mifi cheaply without a contract? 2. Can I connect my current phone to wifi calling and if so will texts come through also? Thanks in advance. I’m somewhat text savvy, but far from an expert.

RE: Stolen Catalytic Converter

We live just outside Leesburg, FL. Our community has an RV storage area. We literally can see our RV from our back porch. The compound is fenced and gate locked each night. The compound has lights like street lights. Not real bright, but reasonable. No camera etc. facing the compound. Thieves climbed over fence in back and hit four motorhomes. Seems to be the latest crime wave. Deputy said even when cameras are present, most often you get a bad image. Going to paint the new one bright yellow with high temp paint. Makes them harder to sell or a lot of work to clean. LOL!

RE: Stolen Catalytic Converter

Everyone take a chill. I don’t want to violate any laws, pollute the environment, or damage my rig. I have insurance, and any repair will cost the deductible. My only concern was straight pipe temporarily until I can get am OEM or get an aftermarket. With a 2007 with 60,000 miles, aftermarket looks better and better. I have noted they meet federal standards and are much less. Tomorrow the quest begins! ??

RE: Stolen Catalytic Converter

Thanks, I will. Probably wait until Monday. And no they stole the one on the passenger side. Nearer the light I guess. LOL.

Stolen Catalytic Converter

Winnebago Voyage 35L Workhorse W22. Well it happened. Thieves cut off one of the two catalytic converters on our RV. Don’t know why they only took one. Reported and have insurance etc. Normally I would contact insurance and get it repaired. BUT… an OEM Cat will be 1-3 months wait. Here are my concerns. 1. If I go the OEM route, can I install a temporary straight exhaust pipe so I can use the rig and run the motor without rousing the neighborhood? My concern is, will this cause the computer to code, give a light, and or reduce power. Even if that is not an issue, could having a Cat on one side and not the other damage the engine? 2. I can get an aftermarket Cat sooner. Not worried at this point about warranty on a 2007. I know these are not the quality of OEM, but are they Ok? Again, don’t want to throw codes or damage the engine. Thanks in advance for the knowledge shared!
