No new Vansco’s available until Dec.

We ordered 4 more a few weeks ago and just got word they will not be available until Dec.
I am thinking we should up the order.
If anyone wants to add on to it we’ll check if we can get more on this shipment.
Hope this helps.

That sucks, that means they were only in stock for 3 weeks. Glad I got mine.

I've been thinking about a spare since I got our coach.
I would definitely be interested in one.
I'm leaving after work tomorrow for a trip to the Oregon dunes but I should have cell service to see messages.

The Vansco 2820 is the electronic module that Alpine started using in coaches somewhere around 2003 (?).
I know our 07 has 2 of them.
From what I can tell they manage basically everything on the coach.
Like if it starts.
So having a spare is kinda good.

It seems they very seldom go out but if that happens it can be troublesome.

There is only one place to get them from what I know, out of Quebec.
You have to open an account through Wells Fargo and it’s a long process.

So we have been ordering extras for anyone who may need one and keeping 2 spares for ourselves. ( no discount for quantities).
We sell them for cost, $1800, and that covers shipping.

We ordered 4 more, one for us as we only have 1 right now, and I think already have 2 others spoken for.

Thank You, TMan59. I am very grateful for all your efforts, input, and expense in acquiring these VMMs and for having them available to us 'states-side. As mentioned via pm and discussed by telephone this week, I am very thankful for being one of the two "spoken for" Alpine Coach owners on your short list. Look forward too in meeting you soon!

Thank you Danny!
You got one and sounds like if all goes well it will be personally delivered.

Indeed, many thanks to John for taking the initiative and starting the process of building a readily available supply here in the US. If only Amazon carried them.

Exclamation No Vanscos available until Dec.

John,
I just had a Vansco fail in the battery compartment. It would not PWR up. Bought a new obsolete one from Mike in Yakima who purchased it from WRV old stock years ago. It is a 2005 model, same as my coach year. It powers up but will not program or link up with the good forward mounted VMM. No NET lights on either unit. I need to start and move the RV now. I get Trans Comm Err and Eng Com Err messages. No start and no input or output lights on the NOS unit after attempting the programming instructions on this forum. Anyone have a spare I could buy or borrow or know how to program one? I am stranded in Poulsbo, WA. Thank you. Original owner of 40 FDTS, s/n 75353.

Did you try the nos in the front? I personally am not that savvy with these things other than ordering them in batches.
At this time I only have our 1 spare and 2 trips upcoming.
As much as I would love to be a hero and help I cannot give up our only spare.
There are a few folks with extras, and if one of them reads this and doesn’t have an upcoming trip maybe we can get you one of those and replace theirs with the December shipment?

Vansco vmn

I did try putting the new one in front and still no networking between the two modules. Power light flashes, not solid on the new one. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated. My coach is stranded.

OK just a suggestion, I would start a new thread asking questions about programming. Make sure we’ve covered all those bases first. Chances of someone seeing it this far in this thread are minimal.

Bob, we are in the process of seeing if we can up the order. All 4 are already spoken for.
I will let you know as soon as we hear
