I wish it were that simple. However on the Side by Side Whirlpool Model WRS321SDHZ05 refrigerator installed, that feature doesn't exist.

Just sickened. It can't be replaced since there are none for sale and Thor has discontinued the floor plan. Heck, the way the floor plan was this year was a one year change to my knowledge so the odds of ever finding one used is pretty slim.

So frustrated. This floor plan was just perfect and because of a greedy shop that took work (I made an appt 3 weeks in advance) that apparently they couldn't handle; my RV is gone. I have had auto shops make we wait when they had more cars than they could pull into their garage at night. I sure wish they would have made me wait another month or so until they actually had room.
Oh my word, that is awful. I feel so bad for you. I hope you are able to get it recovered. Did you register it on the the FordPass app?. If so you may be able to locate it as the vehicles position gets recorded and you can see where it is parked on the map in the app.

That is awful. I am soooo sorry!

I'm not exactly sure on the data, I just know it works on mine. Plus, the app, if configured in the settings, can track your journeys. I think that you may be able to load the app and enter your vin number and get a result. However I also seem to remember that there was a step that you needed to be in the vehicle for the initial configuration.

However, since the vehicle does relay it's position to the app it may worth exploring this capability with Ford to see if they can assist in locating the vehicle.

Look at page 10 in the Ford owners manual that speaks about vehicles with a connectivity device.

Downloaded the app and it looks like the trip is tracked using your phone's GPS system using an app.

The trip might be but the location comes from the vehicle.

Are you seeing other data such as oil life, odometer and miles remaining of fuel?

If so then the vehicle is sending data to the cloud. And if so then click on the map icon. You will have needed to have added the vehicle using the vin number into the app.

Thanks! Size is 24x48 with 16 foot walls. I have a separate heated shop so only needed a place to store the coach and my 6x12 covered trailer. Both fit nicely with slides open and room to walk around. Main door is 14x14, and a standard is 3 foot. 4 sliding windows and has a 5 inch concrete slab. I ran my own electric and added a 100 amp panel to feed a 50 amp plug. It is not insulated but has 6 - 10k lumen shop lights and is nice and bright in there. My cost last summer, before the cost of everything went up, was $41k. It wasnít cheap, but I am so very happy with it!

I think we have that same fridge. Hold the right two buttons down at the same time. It will count down then message that cooling is off.

Thanks for the suggestion. The touch pad on my refrigerator are from left to right Freezer Temp, Light, Ice Type, Lock, Refrigerator Temp.

I tried the two right as suggested and the two temp indicators ran back and forth but that was it. Then I tried holding two temp touch pads and the refrigerator seems to reboot.

But neither combination turned it off.

Iíll just throw the breaker. Itís not that big a deal. Just lazy.

I called Ford. Vehicle location is not available through their tools. Just maintenance items. Oh well...

Did you happen to put a SIM card in the Winegard or activate the SIM card that came with it. If so it might have pinged the closest cell towers at the point it was last turned off The thieves may not know to turn off the master battery switch. In which case the winegard might still be broadcasting.

I did not. Seemed like a fairly worthless piece of equipment given my cell phone's ability to create a hot spot. I have all of the manuals. Is the SIM card that came in the unit noted in the manuals or do you have to go on the roof to look at the number?
