RE: iRV AM-FM iRV 34 radio problem

I called the company, thank you delwhir, and he said that it sounded like a power source problem in the radio. They are foreign made and no parts available. he suggested a new one, $150 to $200. I don't call that cheap. It takes care of my DVD for the TV among other things with three area speaker system and fits the spot it is mounted in. I am not even sure how to get it out!! I will just keep going as I have been I guess, for now. Thanks. Mike

RE: iRV AM-FM iRV 34 radio problem

I have, I suspect, the same type of 2016 AF and the radio has never worked. We got the AF a few months ago, used. Just plain dead. I haven't searched for the fuse since we just don't use a radio that much. And I have a long list of other items to fix or improve. But just in case, where is that fuse? In the fuse box or somewhere else? Sooner or later the wife will notice it and then it will jump up the priority list. The fuse in mine is in the fuse box, fourth from the bottom.

iRV AM-FM iRV 34 radio problem

I have a 2016 Arctic Fox 25Y Travel Trailer that has the iRV AM-FM iRV-34 radio in it and is giving me problems. Most of the time after it has been sitting for awhile, and sometimes even when we have been using it, it will not start with the remote or with the switch on the radio. The switch has a light on, so it appears to be getting power. I found the 20 amp fuse, and if I remove it and put it back in, it gives a little spark and will work most of the time after. I replaced it with a new fuse, and no change. But the switch on the radio always shows power is getting there at all times. I put some Ox-Gard on the fuse, an aluminum wire antioxidant and that didn't help. Does anybody have any ideas? Thanks for the help. Mike

RE: Solar question

Will do, thanks for the help. Did that on the solar that I put in my old trailer, I didn't set this up, and I can't see that it has any. Mike

RE: Solar question

Sounds good. I will talk to them at the shop to try to avoid troubles again. Thanks. Mike

RE: Solar question

Also, the controller has been working good, charging up rapidly in the morning and getting up to 14.6 to 14.8 to start for the daily charging. Seems normal. Mike

RE: Solar question

I didn't use the plugs, I used the configuration of the wires or the polarity of the wires as marked going + to plus and - to - . The problem I had was on movement of the battery case the wires shorted catching on fire and blowing the neg pole out of the right battery. Replaced the wire that looked like it was the one that shorted with a piece of PVC pipe to protect it, and both batteries since I want them to be the same age (6 volt), and everything was fine for a couple of trips. Then on another trip, hooking up to leave the lake, pulled on the plug to hook to the truck, blew up again and blew the neg post out of the right battery again. The fire extinguishers are getting expensive, let alone the batteries. I have it going in to the shop this week. Hope to get it figured out, I have a reservation at the coast starting Friday. Thanks for the reply's. Mike

Solar question

I have an Arctic Fox 25Y that I bought used, and it came with 2-100 watt Zamp solar panels on it. I picked up a Grape 160 watt panel and got a combiner box and hooked them together parallel. I have been told that the wire used in the Arctic Fox is a 10 gauge hookup to the controller. It has been working fine for over a year, but I am having some shorting problems at the batteries, and need to know if that could be causing any problems? Mike

RE: CB Radios??

We use them between rigs when we are traveling across the state going hunting. Cell phones don't work in a lot of that area. Mike

RE: RV Parks charging for water use?

...Cheap water is going away in our overpopulated state... by what measure is FL overpopulated. 2019 estimate is ~20-million with an estimated growth rate of 1.54%. In my book, that is overpopulated. Here in Oregon we have a little over 4 million, and I think it is way overpopulated every time I go down town. Mike

RE: hwy 199

Just go slow. It is tight in places and curvy, but it is done by many every day, and beautiful area. Go at the speed that you have control of your rig. Mike

RE: Different way to take your car

I found what my problem with getting the posted pictures in this post. I switched from Google Chrome to Firefox and the problem is gone. Chrome is faster, but Firefox cleared up several of my problems with receiving pictures and live webcams. Mike

RE: Ram 2500 weak heater?

I have a 2003 dodge diesel that it takes 5-6 miles before it starts to warm up, but it is fine after that. Mike

RE: Changing to a new rig picture

Thanks for the answers, I have been having problems since I switched to Google Chrome and thought that could be the problem. I will have to play with it some more. Getting the live cam for Mt. Ashland is much more important my wife tells me. To each his or her own I guess. Mike
