Has anyone recently tried to buy a Trik-L-Start from LSL Products? I placed an order three weeks ago and received an email confirmation. To date, my credit card has not been debited, no product has arrived, there is no response to email or phone questions. Anyone know anything?

I received mine from them about three weeks ago. Placed order about two weeks before that. I had to follow up through their billing service (2checkout.com). I beleive the follow-up is what kicked them into gear.

They were really slow on my charger, had to email several times. Called, only got a answering machine. I think they will get around to it. Email again with threats to call credit card co.

I ordered one from RV Upgrades, a sponsor here, and received it in two days. I wired it like the wiring diagram on the Winnebago web site, which is slightly different then the instructions that come with the unit. I actually checked a later production 2006 Journey (it became a standard item at some point in 2006, but wasn't on mine) in inventory on the dealer's lot to see if Winnebago actually wired it like the diagram, and they did. The difference is that when wired like the diagram, it does not do anything to anything when you have both the battery disconnects (chassis and house) turned off - i.e the batteries stay isolated and off, so the unit does not charge the engine batteries where as when connected per the Trik-L-Start's instructions it is "on" all the time.

I have been pleased with mine and it appears to work well.

I have also tried to contact them by E-mail and phone without a reply. I had mine installed by the dealer and it is not working correctly. I have heard good things about the product, however, I intend to remove it and find a product that the manufacture will stand behind.

I bought mine from them last year. I think the owners of LSL are full timers. I also think LSL products were at the RV show in PA last year. We will be there this week. IF I see them I will complain and tell them to get going. I will also tell them to check this site. But I also think you would be better to order from RV Upgrades. One of our Supporters.

LSL is a pretty small little company and when Winnebago came knocking on their door for orders for the 06 model year they have been having a tough time keeping up.

RVupgrades.com has 3 in stock and are waiting on delivery of another 20. Trik-L-Charge

I have one installed that I also ordered through RV Upgrades. It took a few weeks to get it, but it has been working exactly as advertised. The Echo Charge is also a very good unit with higher output, and a substantially higher price tag. I did notice that my unit does have a Winnebago part number on it. It has enough output to more than compensate for the parasitic loads on the starting battery, and keep it fully charged. I too believe that the orders from Winnebago may have bogged down their production a bit.

Thanks for everyone for the info. I have cancelled my order with an email to LSL and contacted 2checkout and told them that it was cancelled. The result was an email from 2checkout confirming the cancellation. I am going to get one from RV Upgrades.

LSL Products was not at this show. Must be having some problems. I think you will be happy with RV upgrades.

I also had to wire my unit differently from what was shown by Winnebago in the WIT Bulletin. It really works well when hooked up right.

Rich, might we get some specifics on what you did differently with the wiring?
