RE: Slideout Rocker Switches Dead, Remote Works OK

You haven't indicated what rig and remote system you have, but if it is a Lippert based system, the following may apply. This has been discussed numerous times on the Montana Owners Club forum. The Landing Gear and Slides only working with the remote control and not with the outside manual switches has been a topic of discussion here lately. When ours stopped working "zman08" directed me to a post that solved our problem. It involved removing the ground for the manual switches from the remote receiver and grounding it to the chassis. Apparently there is a "failsafe" circuit to keep the user from using the remote switches and the manual switches at the same time. The failsafe will not provide a ground to the manual switches when the remote system is energized and will sometimes get "locked" in that position. That is what happened to ours. I just moved the ground from the receiver to the chassis and everything works again. Some users have also needed to move the 12V+ line to a separate 12V source. You can replace the receiver module, but I think Lippert wants around $150-$200 for it and it will probably just fail again. Our rig is out of warranty so this was the best economical fix for us. I have included a couple of photos of where the wires are for the manual switches and where I moved the ground to.

RE: Netflix forces newer TVs

I received a letter from Sony saying my Blu-ray would no longer support Netflix. They suggested I buy a Firestick from Amazon. They included a discount code which made the $25 device free. I am happy.

RE: Strange issue with this forum

While this probably should have been posted in the "Forum Help" category, I bet an Admin will be around to move it. I don't know if it has been discussed, being curious, I tried it out. I could go to Page 1 of a multi-page post either by clicking on the number from the listing or once in the post by entering a 1 in the Page Box and hitting Enter.

RE: No Propane Flow to RV Appliances

As I wrote earlier, kinking of the hose is not uncommon. If you are under warranty, your dealer will (should) replace the hose and correct the routing to avoid another kink.

RE: Cracked Rim-what now?

Your rims came from Tredit. They are guaranteed for life. That rim is no longer made. If you call them they will replace it (and usually it's neighbor to preserve the same look) with an option to buy 2 more (for the other side) at a reasonable cost. Not an uncommon problem described in detail on the free to join Montana Owners Club web site (montanaowners.com)

RE: No Propane Flow to RV Appliances

Do any of the other propane powered devices (water heater, refer, furnace) work? No, you have a supply problem. Yes other devices work, but not the ones in the slide out, check for crimping of the flex gas line under the slide. A not uncommon problem on some Montanas.

RE: Steps recommendations

Yet another enthusiastic vote for the Glow steps. Best move I ever made.

RE: Shortcut phone number to connect DNS with DirectV

It has been years since I used this, but I have this contact saved. Phone number straight into the DNS folks 1-800-263-0028

RE: DirecTV DNS changes

In case you missed it, local CBS stations came back a couple of days ago. Somebody must have blinked.

RE: Seattle RV Park Recs

Seattle is not RV friendly. If you are touring the south side of Seattle, then the KOA in Kent (this coming from a guy who dislikes KOA) is the best choice. If playing on the north side, then Lake Pleasant (nice park) is the place.

RE: 2017 montana

The most common causes: 1. The disconnect switch in the convenience center is in the wrong position. The labeling is confusing at best. The key is if you can remove the red key, the battery is disconnected. 2. The batteries were disconnected and/or replaced and wired backwards (even if for just a second or two). This blows the protection fuses in the converter. Replace the four fuses and things are good (assuming the battery is connected correctly) 3. The 50 Amp circuit breaker has failed completely. You can jumper it to verify. If none of the above apply, get out the voltmeter and follow the voltage from the converter to the battery (or vice versa). Plugged into shore power you should see +/- 13.4 volts all the way down the path.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

Just tested again. Lower antenna, turn off receiver. Turn receiver back on, no access to all recordings. Hr-44 Software ox11b2 Fri 5/10, 317a I have the exact same model with the same software level (done on 5/9) As I have absolutely no chance of getting a signal where I am, I just turned on the receiver (which had no power prior to arriving) and watched it go through its routine. I had no cable from the antenna and LNB attached to the receiver. Soon enough I got the infamous 775 error (no LNB found). I then press Menu and get two choices in the left pane: Setup; or Recordings. It takes a few seconds for the recording titles to populate in the main display body but once they do, everything is available to play and/or delete.

RE: 2017 montana 3921FB _ Front Bath Tub

They use an On-Demand WH in the bath tub models. As long as you have water, it will be hot (given the limitations of an On-Demand system). There are number of folks with bath tub models on the Montana Owners Club forum. www.montanaowners.com

RE: Boxes for T105 batteries

Century Plastics sells battery boxes for 1, 2 or 4 Golf Cart Batteries. The box is actually made by someone else and I forget the name. But there are numerous re sellers. Some Google work should find the alternatives. But here is a link to the Century Plastic offering - Clicky On Edit: The manufacturer is Dyno Battery Inc.

RE: Cloud Storage became cloudy..

(like GDGs in MVS O/S). Someone is showing their age! ;) Mea culpa. :B U 2, if you understood the reference. Welcome to mainframe computers Jurassic Park. :W z/OS now lets you access a base GDG set in FIFO order rather than the difficult to process LIFO order of the past. It only took 35 years to get it done. Now back to our normal program.

RE: Government Shutdown Quartzsite LTVAs

A sure sign that the BLM is furloughed is the hundreds of campers out on Plamosa Road camping out of bounds beyond the 3 mile marker. A definite no-no in normal years.

RE: Direct TV

We were experiencing the same pixalation/short screen freeze in CA on the home antenna. The receiver is now in AZ with a different antenna and it still happens.

RE: Directv H25 problems

I am confused! In your first post, and several subsequent ones, you state you are trying to connect to your Weingard Carryout dome type antenna to get DTV HD signals. It is a well documented fact that *NONE* of the portable dome antennas have the capability to receive DTV HD channels (i.e. satellites 99 and 103). They just don't do it for DTV. If you want HD with DTV you need a rooftop antenna (Trav'ler or RF Mogul) and/or a tripod mounted SL3 dish antenna. Adding a SWM8 kit allows you to connect a non-SWM antenna to a SWM only receiver. But it only works for SD channels as that is all the antenna understands. Am I missing something here?

RE: Is Artificial Intelligence swooping down on us?

Two days ago we were stirring around discussing Xmas shopping. Someone briefly mentioned a Swedish clothing store (which none of us have ever visited) here in Seattle. Later when my son used his iPhone, up popped a bunch of ads for the same store. Don't tell me Siri isn't listening.
