Your saying you have no florescent lights on when you and neighbors have this problem.
If you disable the EMS board does it clear the problem?

Still have no resolve on my problem with some frequency that interferes with remote garage door openers as far away as 75 yards? Have called monaco and intellitec and get..I have never heard of that before from both places. Have had 2 techs look at it also to no avail? Tech thinks it could be the board in the intellitec unit. Still searching.

You can use an AM/FM portable radio to find stray noise. I just went out to the garage and unplugged my door so it wouldn't go up and down. I checked my radio while I pushed the button. No signal on AM. But on FM I had a very clear strong signal of codes on 90.7. The modern garage doors run in the 300 to 400 MHz range of frequencies. The 90.7 is a harmonic (multiple) of that frequency. So you can test your remote with a radio to find the frequency that you can hear it. Then walk around in your motor home with the radio tuned to that and maybe a possibility of hearing a loud static noise in the area that the noise is being generated from. Keep the antenna as short as possible so you have to get close to the noise. It may be something as simple as a dirty ground connection on some piece of electronic gear. Be sure to unplug any TV amp going to your antenna. That could be broadcasting out over your tv antenna. That is the easiest way we find noise in the ham or cb radio.

thank you for your reply i will give it a try. i did try with the am side will try the fm. just called monaco and intellitec and they have never heard of such an issue. 3 mobile rv techs have been to my location and had no answers either? we purchased this coach from the original owners who never had it at their home so they never had the issue so it may been sold with this issue.

Here is a thought... Go to Home and follow the links to find the nearest Amateur Radio Club in your area.

Contact them... odds are they have one or more members who would be willing to tackle a challange like this.

Suspects include: Power converter, Fridge control board, EMS, And all other electronics in the RV.

Lets reverse engineering approach this. Instead of trying to figure out what it is with the FM radio approach which by the way is a cool idea. Lets go from the other end. You know you can turn off an AC power breaker. If you have a wiring diagram see what that breaker feeds. If you don't have the wiring diagram see what does not work. Plug everything back into the normal configuration. Once everything is plugged back in and working make sure you still have the problem. NOW turn off the AC that stops the problem. Make sure the remotes work. Go around your motor home seeing what is not working. Take a cheap AC tester from lowes or home depot and make sure which outlets are working to see if any of them are without power with this CB off. Once you have it narrowed down to what devices are turned off by the CB turn it on and start unplugging everything it powers. If you unplug everything then the job gets harder. You are going to have to start looking for loose connections. It might be as simple as the wire going from the CB or it might be where two wires are put together with a wire nut. But the first step is going to be isolation of the circuit that causes the problem

That would be the best idea to contact a ham in your area to help. A lot of guys have done that quite a bit. Here is a link to your local club with names and phones. You may even know one of them.

Thank you so much for the tip. And I do know one of them and didn't even give it a thought. Since you gave me the wake up call. Will be making a call. Thank you again!
