    First smoke today and I just got a Maverick and the receiver will not register to the transmitter...has this happened to anyone here and if so any remedies?
    Thanks in advance

    I don't have one butt I may can help. 1st read the directions closely. Sometimes it make a difference in which part you put the batteries in first. 2nd, make sure your batteries are fresh.

    you probably have to turn the main one of and back on with the reciever on , or press a buttion on the back of transmitter ... something along those lines[​IMG]

    have done all the above.....thinking it is defective
  5. Receiver has to be turned on 1st and then the transmitter or there won't be any conection....

  6. If that's the case and you are close enough with the units....could be bad as you say !!!
