Determined my hot water electric element is bad. Need to get a new one and suggested I get a spare.

2 or 3 pop rivets and it's better than factory.

Got dish network dish aimed and tested out in Windjammer. I love the way it works, no problem with Windjammer wiring.

Brian, Brian, it is an electric water heater element. NOT a hot water electric element. Hot water doesn't need to be heated.

Had to fix a couple catch latches in kitchen. Guess DW cooks too much!

When I did mine, I used nails and left them slightly longer then the wood. Use on s smooth surface, they don't slide anymore!

I also helped a neighbour towing a overweight Highlander with the brake controller at 11. He locked up the trailer brakes on his mini light digging ruts with every move backing into his site. Suggested he back off the controller a bit. His Toyota brakes smoke if he doesn't run the trailer brake controller at maximum.

Didn't like the fact I had to have a flashlight after dark to see inside my rear outside storage. So I ran a 2 conductor line from the panel with it's own fuse (5A-18ga @ 25') underneath, through the existing conduit to the back storage. I fashioned an aluminum bracket and mounted it to the door frame, installed a rocker switch (SPST) and ran the wire to three spaced out points along the top. I cut some LED tape (white) into 3 strips of 6 LED's each. I soldered the wire to the LED strips and mounted them on the ceiling of the storage unit with clear silicone caulk.

Now with the flip of a switch, I get a soft glow, just enough to see everything in the dark but not to bright as to overly light up the area.
