RE: RV Refrigerator in cold weather

My Refrigerator quit working in the cold weather 25 to 4 degrees for many days. I put a 60 watt trouble light in the rear of the compartment to keep it going. That is a regular light bulb not a LED Good Luck to you JimR

RE: Need a device

I have a Jeep Wrangler with the M&G Engineering brake system, that system has a way to hook up a signal light when the brakes are applied. A safety light for when and if the break away is activated. The signal light was installed in the Jeep, a good LED light that attached to the visor worked like a champ. When I hit the brakes I could look back, via rear view camera, and see my signal light come on, life was good. Then one day I was stopped at a stop light in Layton Utah where I and other cars were stopped including the PD Officer that swooped in behind me with lights on, WHAT THE?? Then I saw the smoke coming from the Jeep I did managed to get to the side of the road and after 2 PD officers a Fire Engine and an Ambulance (I guess us old guys have a habit of falling over during extreme stress). Long story short the Jeep fire went out when I stopped (front Brakes). The break away was pulled when I left Charlies's Service and applied the brakes I was looking forward and in heavy traffic and the lighting was not good for me to see the light in the Jeep. Bottom line the light was not a good way to see when the brakes were applied, you are not looking back all the time. The fix was to run the light, a bright red LED, to the dash and redo the electric wiring from the MH to the Jeep. Now when the brakes are applied by me or the break away I know it now not in a few minutes when I can look. The Jeep was still towable with no break away and was repaired, Hubs, brakes and calipers and some related parts, under $1000.00. The cost to install the signal light was a lot less. Your call but it is better up front where you can see the light when it comes on. JimR ps I did not have a heart attack so the ambulance went hone

RE: " observe " TT frig from afar

Toss the condiments, turn off the refrigerator and leave the door open. Cut back on the AC. The money you save on electricity will more than pay for the condiments. X2 X3

RE: Wheels off the ground "Does it Hurt the frame/RV"

No issue with having your front wheels off the ground. You should not however use the jacks to lift your rear wheels off the ground as it circumvents your parking brake. First, I do not have and have never had a class A, but, when the rv is in the air on jacks, how could it possibly move. When it is off the ground, there is nothing round that can roll. I think it could slide. On my MH the jack base is maybe 10 inches of steel as compared to rubber tires on the ground X 2 or 4 seems better to me. As far as the OP question I do not know but for me I do not like to lift the wheels off the ground, I have done it but. jimR

RE: Synthetic Trans Fluid

Right now your on regular trans maintenance schedule. To be able to go to the full tes 295 schedule you are suppose to drain trans fluid fill with tes 295 drive 30 miles drain trans fluid change filters and refill with tes 295. Where did this come from, the drive 30 miles? JimR

RE: Synthetic Trans Fluid

Filters at 36 months Fluid at 48 months Go here and input your information My Allison Transmission This is for my trans yours based on serial number may be different. I do know that if you go from regular fluid to synthetic fluid it is not considered 100 percent synthetic till one more change after changing to synthetic. There is a lot of info on the Allison web site. Also I am under an extended warranty and to keep that valid I need to maintain the maintenance schedules to stay under the warranty otherwise I think one could go longer on the change. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Bill I agree with you on this, I did mistype HD for the dome when I should have typed SD. I did edit that. I do know to get HD is to change up on my equipment (update) and bend with the wind and not push against it. Thanks for the information. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Bill What surprise? Right now anything is possible. I do have a DTV HD receiver and a Genie but I use the SD D12 only because of the Sat Antenna required for the HD. In other words the little 18 inch dish is easy to set up and where I am at now I am aiming through the trees to hit sat 101. Also I have a King Dome that locks in very well on the SD programing. I do know soon that I will need to change but right now will wait and see. Thanks JimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

Hey Ray Just received my last check $113.69. On your refrig it has lasted awhile, mine quit a couple years ago and I replaced it with a Samsung. So far so good but I am not boondocking like I did in the early days. Stay or try to stay cool in Barstow.

RE: Directv access card

Update on Monday called DTV asked "Where is my access card you sent" well they sent it to the service address but I am not there as was discussed on the first call. They are resending a new one, will let you know. Funny or not why they, DTV, will do something after being giving info on where to send things and DTV agreeing that they were not sending to the service address but to to me. I just do not get it. Terrible service. JimR Update Called today and they are sending me a new one this will be number three. Will see JimR Update again: Just received this email from AT&T if you have read my posts and updates you will read where AT&T has send my card out, or did they. Very confused following is the email received. "On June 15, 2020, we mistakenly sent you an email regarding the replacement of expiring Access Card(s) for your DIRECTV® equipment. While you will still need to replace the Access Card(s), we are unfortunately not ready to ship the replacement card(s) yet. However, you will not lose any programming during this time. Please watch for a follow-up email later this summer when we are ready to ship you the replacement card(s). The new cards will be sent via Fedex, and there is no cost to you. In the meantime, there is nothing you need to do. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 866.445.1144. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused." I do think that AT&T does not have it together on this one. JimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

Total amount to be paid is $916.00 or 25 shares at 37.11. Yes I know the math is wrong but that what it says. Checks received: First check $228.90 2nd $307.52 3rd $307.52 Total so far $843.90 less about $916.00 leaves maybe $80.00 to $100.00 dollars left on incoming check. This is for me not sure about any one else. jimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

The way I understood it was the last payment would be less. I would need to look at my correspondence from them to be very sure. JimR

RE: Camping World takes too long to ship

Ordered a surge protector from Camping World four days ago. As of this writing it still has not shipped. Note to self, next time order from Amazon, I could have had it two days ago.Hate being in a campground with out a surge protector . Unless you have prime, Amazon is also taking longer to ship it is not just Camping World. Throw in Walmart and Target too. I know I have orders from each on Tuesday and I now have some stuff with more coming in July 2 to the 9th. JimR
