ENGINEER MIKE,
I believe congratulations are in order from all of us on your 1000 messages and responses. Not only did you accomplish this but your messages(all of them ) have benefited every one of us. Thank you for all that you have done for us and what we expect you to do for us in the future. When we all figure out your abbreviations we will really have a ball. I believe there may be a TV show created around your abbreviations. Some of them are classic. By the way is your wife ever permitted to speak.

Rick, Creativity is the spice of life. What Engineer Mike has told us in his response to my note is how to correct all of your problems in your Alpine. He has narrowed it down to this very finely tuned minute explanation. I don't know exactly when Mike became involved with WRV's Alpines but in that period of time this has been his response to all of our problems. You can read into his response in two ways.
#1 HUH
#2 Drive it off a cliff.
Look at the incredible amount of time that you have saved and money!
I can't imagine why anyone would have a problem with this response, well the Coyote would but then again

We're in the dark also on what NALOPKT about me, TFTT???

Engineer Mike seems to be the amazing in his willing helpfulness. We all agree that we'd be lost without his expertise.

But, help is needed on the decoding of the bove.

There is a show off in every group.

First EM with his "NALOPKT". EM truely is TMITK

Then our wonderful "admin" gets involved and shows us what amatures we are.

But TED don't give him too much credit. Remember this question and EM's answer?

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Does anyone out there know where to to find a driver side complete window(frame and all glass) for a 2004 36' Alpine? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

EM's answer <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Yes. First, sit in the driver's seat of a 2004 Alpine. Second, look to your left. You should find one there </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

On the other hand EM was exactly correct!!

Thanks EM!!

Then I get a call out of the blue at 7:00 this a.m. from an RV tech in Texas (who got my number how????). He wanted to know where to find the solenoid for the air horn.

Guess where I went to do a find on "air horn"? iRV2 helped me tell him just where he could go.
(to find the air horn solenoid that is)

Don't you know that the Admins know everything?

Would you believe we have to Google everything?

Once you get those 5 candles you are open game. We all know know that you truly know most everything and we can ask you anything. Although your answers are difficult, once we get through the abbreviations we have all these problems solved.

By the way E Mike have you ever watched the show called "House" on TV or does that not make it to Mexico. You probally would not enjoy the show. Phone #'s I never give out. (just where is that solenoid for the air horn?)

Mike,

As to where someone got your phone number! Since you are a member of ACA, you are on the membership list. This list is available to all members and lists all of your contact and coach info. One of these members may have decided to help out someone with your #.
