Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

With the cold blast that the Midwest is experiencing, I have a full range of use of the 12v heater. It is still effective down to just below freezing but the effectiveness quickly is diminished as the temps drop down. At 20 degrees there is still reasonably warm air coming out. At 10 degrees it is o...

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

Over all I think the idea of the isolated 12v battery pack just for the 12v heater extends the range by 5 to 12 miles in Winter. Thanks for your observations. If it keeps you from using the car heater, it's gotta be extending your range more than 5 or 10 miles But, the question remains, does it pro...

Re: RBS light Alarm

I just wanted to say even though it has only been 2 weeks, my car is running fine and normal with the used AC compressor installed.

Re: Why not a RoadPro heater?

I was charged with the duty to report back on the performance of my RoadPro 12v heater. Since Chicago is well into winter I have some things to say about it. Late in the Autumn I used my RoadPro more as test runs to see how it would do. Temps ranged from ranged from 45F to 32F. I tried several diffe...

Re: RBS light Alarm

The repair was completed 4 days ago. I am sure the part has been tossed out. If I wanted to retain the part I would have had to request that well in advance of the repair.

Re: RBS light Alarm

Well I do not specifically know what happened to the AC compressor. The unit was faulting out the system. I did not request the old part given to me. I picked up my car today. Everything seems fine. The AC works fine and all is normal. The total cost was just over $1500. Obviously there is no guaran...

Re: RBS light Alarm

Finally my car has been repaired at the dealership. The faulting AC compressor has been replaced with a used unit. I was called this evening so I will pick the car up Saturday morning. I will report back about the repairs. The total bill for the repair is $1,500, so if it lasts it is a far cry from ...

Re: RBS light Alarm

My car has been sitting at the dealership now for one month. The used AC compressor arrived a couple of weeks ago but I am waiting for the special AC compressor oil to be delivered from Japan. That allegedly is to arrive on Monday (in 3 days). Hopefully the used part will work and solve the problem....

Re: RBS light Alarm

No matter what, my dealer would not disconnect the AC as a solution. They would let me take the car on a flat bed and pay all the diagnostic fees. This would be foolish to do as I am not so sure this is a real solution. Besides I obviously would prefer to have functional AC. The projected cost of th...

Re: RBS light Alarm

Thanks for the feedback. I have suggested to the dealership, the idea of a used AC compressor. They managed to hunt one down. The part is returnable for refund but all the labor at the dealership is not. So there is a big risk. In addition I have to wait 30 days for the special oil for the compresso...
