  1. I've been watching the various threads about the TSD card since it was made available to RV owners a few years ago, and I don't think I've read about one issue with them having access to bank accounts. They serve many people and many professional drivers, and every interaction I've had with them impressed me. We have about half of our regular bills paid by direct draft from our checking account. Never have had a problem with this. Not saying there can't be a problem, but there are many other things I worry about more than this.
  2. This is what I did. Had both for a while and hands down the TSD card is more convenient. Just be sure to check before you fuel to make sure the place you're fueling is in their program. The discount changes from brand to brand and even station to station. This is where the TSD app shines. Of course, discounts vary with the TCS card as well depending on the place you fuel.
  3. Difficulty funding the card is the reason I cancelled it and never looked back. Never could understand how a card which was supposed to make fuel purchasing easier was so darned difficult to fund.

    Inverter

    I'm guessing that the inverter here is an inverter/charger and not just an inverter. Have you confirmed that the transfer switch is working properly and that both hot legs are making it out of the generator? With proper voltage? Not uncommon for a connection in a transfer switch to get loose over time, and when this happens there will be a voltage drop. My thinking is that the output leg from the generator which feeds the charging circuit in the inverter is got a bad connection, likely in the transfer switch, and it's causing the inverter/charger to throw an error. When there is a low-voltage error it will shut down the charging, and perhaps try again if the connection momentarily gets better. If you're not comfortable working with 120v ac power, have someone who is open the transfer switch and confirm that ALL the connections are clean, tight, and show no signs of burning or overheating.
  5. Here's the link: https://camperreport.com/nirvc-changing-the-future-of-rv-service/ Seems like a great idea - hope it works out because what's been done up to now is a disaster.
  6. When was the refrigerator last serviced? What does the LP flame look like when lit? Is there rust inside the burner chimney? It could be a coincidence, or it could be something to do with the change in air circulation due to the change in cover. If the flame is shutting off every time you stop moving, then it sounds like the burner is not venting properly at rest. Lots of things could cause this, and I think that a full service & cleaning on the fridge burner/chimney/ventilation area would be a good first step.
  7. Same cover? Did you do anything during the install which could have blocked or restricted the air flow? Did any of the baffles inside the cavity move?
  8. Checked with a friend of mine into Prevost conversions, and he agreed that the best place for recommendations is the Prevost Community. Best chance to find someone with the same or similar model conversion to give accurate Information. www.prevostcommunity.com
  9. All depends on what you have for an on-board charger setup. If it's a modern multi-stage system, my money's on just letting it continue to do its thing by plugging in with an adapter. The problem with trickle chargers can be that some charge at too-high of a voltage and can boil your batteries. Alternatively, fully charge the batteries and then just disconnect them. They should make it months without a problem if they are fully charged.
  10. My healthcare provider is Aurora. On their website they now have a special tab off the main page with Covid-19 information, including recent test results and my vaccination history. Took a bit of searching to find it the first time as it's pretty far down the menu column. The part with the QR code download button looks like this for me: The QR code link does nothing but show a QR code, which I can use to download the electronic vaccination record into the app on my smartphone. It's my understanding that this should be available in every state and with most major health care providers. If you're not seeing the QR code for your healthcare provider, perhaps a phone call to them will help figure out where they're hiding it. As another option, I think that every state also has an online place where residents can access their digital vaccination records. Hope this helps.
  11. Same for us - we were told not to laminate the originals so they are in our lock box/fire safe. We both carry laminated copies, but we also have the digital version with the QR code which can be scanned by anyone that needs the details. The QR code digital cards can usually be added to your smartphone easily. Find the QR code for doing this on your medical provider's website.
  12. The first vaccinations required for schoolchildren were in 1855. Many others have been added since. When I was sent to kindergarten in 1967 my mother had to take me for my vaccinations before they'd complete enrollment. When I joined the Army in 1981 there was an entire battery of vaccinations I was required to take if I wanted to get past the intake phase of basic training. When I attended college there were required vaccinations. When I worked in summer camps to earn my way through college TB testing was required for employment. When people travel to certain foreign countries there are required vaccinations. Why, suddenly, is it such a huge deal when another vaccination comes on the scene? I just don't get what has everyone so upset with the testing and vaccinations for Covid-19. It's not like we haven't been down this road before. We have. We survived. We moved past it. Even more so, I don't see how this conversation is helping any of us enjoy our motor homes, vans, and travel trailers any more. Any chance we can get back to those conversations?
  13. Not quite. Does not apply to domestic travel. Unless you have information to support what you're saying let's not make it worse than it is. Here's a quote from a news story on the issue: Any foreign national who travels to the US must be fully vaccinated, though there remains no vaccination requirement for American citizens traveling via air, either globally or domestically. The White House said earlier in the day that a vaccine requirement for domestic travel remained on the table as an option for the future.
  14. I think you have a good point. Here is a snapshot of the member dashboard - where is the obvious link to the Forums? Shouldn't there be one in the left-hand column where all the other major links are?
  15. You can refine it even further - I have a link on my browser that takes me directly to the list of unread recent posts. No need to go through levels of menus.
