In Topic: Any Pilots Out There??

29 August 2017 - 06:54 PM

Not a pilot but when I retired from the FAA I was Technical Support of Navigation/Landing/Communications for the Pacific Northwest Systems Management Office. A fancy name for the guy they called if the ILS, VOR, TACAN, MLS, RCL, or any transmitter/receiver site couldn't get repaired by the field technician. I loved my job right up until it became more political than technical.

Thanks for all your work. I flew many ILS approaches in that region.

I myself have crossed the line and work as an inspector for the FAA now.

Yep...make and model would help, along with some pictures of what it looks like.

Yeah that's my bad. I know better then to ask a question without any details..

I will get pictures in the next day or so. Between work and kids baseball, it's none stop on Tuesday's and Wednesday. I'll try to sneak a pic and post tomorrow night.

The jack was a gift from DW.

Manufacturer: Lippert Components Inc
Mfg Part #: 285318

Replacement switch --
JR Products 13635 Black 5th Wheel/Tongue Jack Switch

Makes me wonder if I ordered the wrong switch

Sorry to hear about your 21RS. Hopefully everything else was ok.

Not sure if I can be of help but we have been contemplating selling our 2012 230RS. We have 3 boys and basically have outgrown it. We live just south of Charlotte NC. Message me and we can chat about it if you want.
