Thanks

I have no control over money

I work from home for this company ,

No it is not a scam, it is a deposit until you rate a answer 3 stars or more

you can request a refund at any time of your deposit

Yes I do know about them , I worked at and for TK for 34+ years

start at cleaning batteries, that unit is very touchy about voltage

is the reset popping to shut it down

what is the year of unit

no I am not upset,

some times customers get confused with 1st time use

and waiting a length of time, I go off line at 8 ish Pm

and back on at 8Am, then on and off all day

The reset isn't popping. It runs until the air or i hear the fan goes into high speed then control unit in the sleeper goes completely blank and engine shuts off at the same time but no codes
Expert:  Wayne replied 2 years ago.

let me know , I am off to the Dentist UHHHHH

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hello Wayne.hope your dentist visit went well.When I got home that day I wasn't feeling well ,ended up in the and left on blood pressure medicine!I did get the battery terminals clean .haven't had the alternator output checked but it is brand new by the way. .
Expert:  Wayne replied 2 years ago.
Dentist went well , just cleaning, no cavities
Sorry that you are on Blood Pressure Rx, I have been for 7 years now
but Hey , if that keeps you on the right side of the grass, so be it
OK, your issue, it still sounds to me a voltage/amp issue,
either the alternator is weak , or the fan motor is pulling to many amps
