BILL ~ Everytime I've had a problem w/CODE RED I have done just that. I've actually replied to their E-mails letting them know what has worked and what has not worked, just so that they are aware that there are problems, and secondly, what types of problems. If we don't let them know then all they can say is, "Well, nobody ever tells us", and then it would be noone's fault but our own if problems didn't get resolved. It's quite a useful tool to have, and I'm glad we do have it!
