Sometimes while the microwave is running it is charging 14+ others it goes to 13.3. Anyone ever have this issue? If so, how'd you fix it...

    Ever have this happen?

    We have a Carrier Comfort Pro gen 4 apu. Saturday morning we kicked it on for a minute. I noticed that it sounded quite odd, so we thought maybe we had snapped a belt again. At first glance there was no snapped belt, but a bit of movement on the alternator, so we thought t needed to be...

    Premier truck wash

    We recently used the Premier truck wash at exit 15 off from I75 in MI. They did a fantastic job. They have a loyalty card that after 5 washes you get one free. The only downside is that they are not a 24 hr location, but as I said we were more than satisfied with their wash. Best part was no...

    Where do you park?

    Where do you park when you go home? Not all of us are able to park our trucks in our driveways, and sometimes even our own neighborhoods. Just wondering where others choose to park. Sent from my VS870 4G using Xparent Pink Tapatalk 2

    Prepass battery

    Has anyone had the battery in their prepass die? I think ours did. I went through a scale, it blinked once, made a weird noise and never blinked again. Not sure how to test the battery or if you can replace it or not. We have one of the grey longer units. Sent from my VS870 4G using Xparent...

    I76 E Vail area

    If you are traveling this way give yourself extra time. Due to road construction at the Idaho Springs tunnel area, it took me 3 1/2 hours to do the pass today. Going up and down those hills in bumper to bumper stop and go traffic was absolutely horrible. Sent from my VS920 4G using Xparent...
