Thanks iRV2

I didn't want to reply and resurrect very old threads.

...but IRV2 is such a great resource.

This week I learned to disconnect the neg lead on my magnum inverter for 15 min to hard reset ...and it fixed my weird outlet intermittent issues.

Confidence on entering the truck side of the truck stops for the first time

The proper way to add an outlet at home (which ended up with me not doing it yet because the electrician was a tool ...but that is another story

Brand validation of DEF fluid at Walmart (let me tell you, the jug with the filler hose attachment couldn't be easier for us whose DEF is on the wrong side.

etc

Yup, there's not telling how much money and time the good folks on IRV2 have saved me over the last 4 years since buying the MH!

BTW, your user name reminds me of my first Radio Shack computer!

You guys missed the Tandy 1000! Bought one for work and it ran nonstop for over a year.

Dang, you guys are dragging up some old memories! (I used the Commodore 64 to hack satellite codes.)

C64? You folks were fancy. VIC-20, a cassette drive and a thermal printer for labels on the first paper route!

Can't say I've saved a lot yet, but we've definitely been guided in our purchase decisions. Thanks!

Sounds like everyone responding is like me ; born 3 days before dirt was invented.
Couldn't carry those new calculators to school , had to use a " slide rule ".

Try handing one of those to your grand children ; tell them they need to know how they work for the times when the power for their computer goes out.
