Wow days not half over and already learned something new. Now I need to see if our Jenson's have TF. Maybe TF comes with something like Sirius.

Just FYI on the traffic info. It's not broadcast on typical radio stations, it is broadcast on a specific FM frequency in major cities that is received by add-on module to the Magnadyne radio.

My Berk has the options in the Magnadyne software but it didn't come with the hardware module to receive the broadcasts. I suspect most are that way. Would need to add the hardware module to receive traffic info.

I vote for a CO2 or propane detector making beeping sound. Air fluctuations in gauge is normal cycling of your air dryer and regulator. My 2 cents

Ok Wolverine is spot on. We are on our shake down trip and the beeping continued. Don has his monitor on all the time but happened to shut it off and the beeping stopped. When he turned the system.... radio/gps/cd/camaras back on, the beeping started happening again. So we figured out Where the beeps are coming from (the radio/monitor/gps system) but couldnt figure out how to fix it. And it did say "NO TF" on the monitor. So Wolverine hit it on the head. Thank you! Now how do we get that off so we no longer get the beeping?

Never had the beeping but our radio did come on by itself when staying in Colorado with a tornado warning.

The weather alert comes on automatically. Even if you are listening to the radio or playing an ipod through the radio, it will over ride that and start broadcasting the weather alert.
