I'm pretty sure I've seen a few posts here regarding converting rigs like that to RV status.

Hmm. If only there was a way to contact them without going in or using the internet. Like some sort of device you could, I don't know, maybe press a coded sequence of numbers into and someone on there end would be alerted and possibly be able to answer said queries.

Yes it's been done. The one I'm thinking of was titled as an RV.
