    Educate me on the 3 way RV fridge.

    My experience is they don't work well at all for us on two vheicles we have owned. We just bought a Sprinter Airstream that has one and we have a heck of a time keeping the interior temperature below 50, especially if the ambient temperature is above 85. That is fine for English beer but not...

    That is a nice panel! Did you make that? That does seem like a nice option.

    Found: RRC Borg-Warner transfer case

    We thought long and hard about an LT230, but then we have to swap brackets, change the linkage, and modify the center console. We really need to get this back the toad ASAP. Also, the BW seems to work better in the snow and ice that is found the Arizona high country. Most importantly, it is my...

    Found: RRC Borg-Warner transfer case

    UPDATE - we have a rebuilt one on the way. Anyone know of a rebuilt Borg Warner transfer box for sale? They seem to be in short supply. A lot of places have them listed but when you call them, they don't actually have it available. FTC1564E.

    Wired winch remote recommendations

    Thanks, DaveInDenver! That is exactly the info I was looking for. I was looking at that very one. Maybe I will make my own handle and use one of these switches: https://www.mcmaster.com/#8002k84/=1cgc4v0 But I will probably just buy this since I am a lazy bugger.

    Wired winch remote recommendations

    Thanks for the info. The winch itself has given good service for 15 years both for me and for the PO who installed it - he is also a friend. The solenoid pack died after multiple water crossings in Afton Canyon on the Mojave Road during a wet New Year's trip a couple of years ago. I replaced it...

    Wired winch remote recommendations

    I never liked the winch remote that came with our Ramsey REP8000, and now that the contacts are getting flaky, I have an excuse to replace it. Any recommendations? I have a distrust of wireless controllers so I would like to stick to wired.

    How often do RRC's need head gaskets replaced

    Our first RR was an 89 model we bought with 125,000 miles in 1996 from the original owner who lived down the street from the dealership in Scottsdale. He had just had the radiator recored. It was a very reliable vehicle, taking us on our honeymoon to Canada and all over the Southwest. It...

    67 LR 109

    We have that same engine in our Dormobile, known as the Euro 6. The other 6 used was the NADA 6 which has a different cylinder head and intake manifold. I got fed up with the SU pump, new ones, rebuilt ones, solid state points ones. Finally replaced it with a Facet. I hope you have better...

    Ignition/alternator warning light on when key is out

    Hi All, In 2014 I installed a dual battery system into our 1992 Range Rover using a Blue Sea 7611 ACR. The PO converted the alternator to a Delco 12SI, and the most recent component change was a new alternator 3 months ago. About 2 weeks ago, an intermittent problem developed where when the...

    Update: Today Spot sent us an email asking us to come back, and offering to turn our service back on for a year for $50. This is 1.5 years after letting our service lapse, and two months after we gave up trying to get our Spot Trace reactivated since their customer service never responded...

    Thanks BigGeorge. We came close to getting InReach, but bought a Globalstar satellite phone instead. It was free with a 12 month contract, $100/month with unlimited talk, text, and data. My wife and daughter used it on their trip to Alaska and back. It worked for the talk every evening...
