Progressive Ind. PMS HW30C Install Part 2

Next is the removal of the input power wire and 30 amp main breaker.

Now I pull the main out of the back of the power panel.

Progressive Ind. PMS HW30C Install Part 3

Now I take the opportunity to tighten all the 12v grounds. And straighten the block because thats me 😜.

Back on task - I make a pig tail with a 30A female twistlock plug.
This replaces the input in the power panel.

Then comes adding a male twistlock to the original power cable.

After reinsalling the main breaker I am done with the power box.

As you can see, I can connect the new pigtail to the original input cable and power the unit up. I did that as a test. It passed.

Progressive Ind. PMS HW30C Install Part 4

Now I make two more pigtails.
One with a female twistlock and one with a male twistlock.

The PMS gets wired now. The female end becomes the input cable. This connects to the original power wire that was removed from the power box and got a male plug installed.

The male plug pigtail becomes the new output from the PMS and connects to the new pigtail that goes to the main breaker.

Progressive Ind. PMS HW30C Install Part 5

The PMS/Surge Protector box is installed and the plugs are connected.
They only go on one way so it is foolproof.

Finally, the display monitor is installed.

After everything is buttoned up, heat vent reinstalled and panels replaced.
The project is complete.

Shower Support Upgrade

It has been my experience that leaks form at the drain because of floor flexing. Being a large Duck, the flex is probably more pronounced.
Upon inspection of the drain and subfloor I found the subfloor to be a bit “thin” in the support department. So I made some additional supports and shims to prevent a leak, hopefully. The shims are made from 1x4 PVC exterior trim boards cut into squares. Then welded together with PVC cement except for one block and the shim. The block of 4 is glued to the floor. Then the last block and shim are inserted. No floor flex now!

Looks pretty nice plus piece of mind knowing all your connections are tight, I had to re-crimp my main positive battery connection the lug slid right off the cable when I was changing batteries.

Bug Screen Part 2

This is the second half of the “save the radiator” project. The main grill screen is a made to fit item from Fia in Canada.
Install is a piece of crumb cake.
Clean the surface, tape it in place, set the “Stick a Studs”, push hard. Done!

Dyson V6 Storage and Charging

I added a 120V GFCI protected outlet to the rear compartment. Could come in handy for other uses but the intent is to be able to charge the V6 power head in its wall mount. The charger has not arrived yet.

Hi Duckogram, Could you provide the company ordering details for the grill screen? I have been searching for something attractive, or at least not ugly, to protect the radiator and fill the openings. Do they still provide airflow?

That’s funny , I had the outlet and the charger but no vacuum. I bought a new one and use the extra charger in my shop during the winter.
