  1. X2 Chad....NH would be our dream Coach. We are on our second Drv a 2014 and a 2018, each were 40ft or over and have never had a problem finding a spot to fit into. We have 1200 watts of solar and are close to our carrying capacity with full fresh water. A word of caution If considering the DRV 2014, if the slide outs use the Schwintec system I would pass on it.
  2. Hi Al, Did you every get your Refrigerator Running? What parts were needed and where did you get them from? Bob
  3. Argo Thanks for the advise. Our Insurance might have cover it but our deductible is $1000 and the part was $500. Bob
  4. Al, We replaced the inlet nox sensor which came with a new harness and all seem to be running fine. We have been on a rampage........ 4 WoodChucks, 1 Racoon and of course 1 Skunk, Pee-Yoo. Bob
  5. A friend of mine is the service manager for a nationwide fleet, every truck has a launch CR-HD scanner in it. They can clear codes and get them back to the shop for repairs. I paid about $120 for mine off of ebay. The following link is what we use www.launchtechusa.com/crhd/ Bob
  6. That sounds like fun! Now that's revenge! I hate to admit it but.... I did corner a Woodchuck in the barn with a pitch fork and lost.. They are aggressive little bastards. Bob
  7. That poor Volvo (Lucy) suffered and suffered for days. It is Monday 4:07 pm. and Lucy needs to be pressed into service on Thursday for a short 500 mile trip for the DW. I am lucky enough to have a friend that manages a large flee of trucks and most of them are Volvo's......so after work he stopped by to take a look. He said Nox sensors are finicky you probably should replace it...... crimping the wires together or soldering might work but down the road your asking for trouble. So I removed the sensor and headed down to Volvo for a replacement. Hang on to your Knickers..... they aren't cheap but I have been told that the aftermarket sensors have a 30% failure rate. I handed over the old sensor to the parts man and told him the story about Mr Woodchuck... we have a very expensive laugh as he rang up the sale! Get home put the sensor in..... easy peazy 2 bolts and 1 zip tie. I cleaned the Def doser and replaced the the doser gasket as well. Next I turn the key and start her up.....I here the beep and up pops the scr derate message. Now what? Texted my friend who stops by with generic Volvo software. He couldn't get it to clear the codes to do a park regen, so we decided I would stop by his work at lunch time on Wednesday and he would clear the codes with the official Volvo software and do a regen. Wednesday I get into the truck, start it up, here the Beep and see the SCR Derate in <20minutes message, bummer it's 30minutes to his shop. Luckily I have a code reader that temporarily clears the codes. I get to his shop he clears the codes and does a regen. After the regen the codes reappear so we decide the only way to get it fixed by tomorrow morning is by going to Volvo. I get to Volvo, they say that they might be able to fit it that tonight if I leave it. As I am waiting for a ride home the service manager comes out, plugs in with his computer and say's which sensor did you replace the inlet or outlet Nox? He said lets take a look......that's the wrong Nox sensor he says. By the time I get to the parts department the correct sensor is sitting on the counter. I replace the Sensor in the parking lot (old school) and all is Good😎. So What lessons have I learned Lesson #1 Be prepared.... Tractor needs a minimum of a 22 mag. Lesson #2 Make sure you check that the part numbers match up even though they look the same. Lesson #3 Be prepared..... Carry a Code Reader that clears active codes in your truck. Love these trucks Always learning Bob
  8. Lesson number 1 It was all my fault....Should have had him twice while in the tractor......... But as my neighbors said............ what half A** farmer doesn't have a gun in the tractor.........that would be ME. I found the den and wish I could use a conibear trap but have to many cats and dogs around so must use live trap.
  9. We just got back from being on the road for 2 weeks which put us way behind on chores.......So plugged the truck and trailer in and left it outside the barn. While mowing I noticed a Woodchuck run out from underneath the truck and into the tree line (where is the gun when you need it). A few days passed and as I am walking towards the truck and I see Mr. Woodchuck we have eye contact and freeze.........he starts running towards the truck and disappears. I quickly open the hood to see if he is in there.......he's not but I now can see he has been eating the Heat shield foal and foam on the hood. It's time to get the truck in before he does some real damage! The next day I fire up the truck, pull around to the barn and start backing in.....when out from under the front runs a big brown rodent. After getting the truck into the barn I started looking to see if he had done any further damage, I opened the skirt under the passenger door and found he had eaten the wires to the inlet Nox sensor. Then Came: Dam* Woodchuck where was the Gun when I needed it. The rest of the story to follow Bob
  10. Al, found this, not sure if it is the exact match but should work if it fits. Bob www.camperid.com/norcold/refrigerator-thermostat-control-assembly-mpn-636495.html?view=050357&gclid=EAIaIQobChMInoyxjfGf4gIVxlcNCh2IYQf7EAQYASABEgJaCfD_BwE
  11. Al, Penguin Refrigeration videos were of great help! Replacing the fan looked like a real challenge..... I was lucky, I ordered a fan but didn't need to replace it. I found it worked fine when connected directly to a 12volt source and with the new controller. Al you are in uncharted territory, those bottom nuts looked impossible to remove. You might have to break the old fan to get it out and hold the new fan with only 2 or 3 nuts. I thought about mounting the fan on the outside of the coils if I couldn't get the old one out. If you can not find a fan let me know. Good luck keep us informed Bob
  12. Al, Here is a video that shows how it is held in.
  13. Al, The controller number is 101N0210. Does the controller unplug from the frig ? Yes it unplugs I think the plug is underneath the controller and will show itself upon controller removal. I do not see any bolts or screws holding the controller. I do remember it was hard to figure out what was holding the controller in place, the screw holding it is on the opposite side of the electrical connections. If my memory serves me correctly all you have to do is pry the case over the screw that holds it in place. Good Luck Bob
  14. Al, Sorry I haven't gotten back with you..... We are planting crops....... it has rained and rained and rained..... first day in fields for 4 days... I will look at ours tomorrow and get back with you. Thanks Bob
