Is it a dimming rather than an actual flicker? With nothing turned on in the bathroom does this happen? I have had breakers that were faulty and erratic. Try substituting the breaker to remove that...

Never trying what you propose, I can only guess. Assuming you are in the 3 to 5v range to be safe I'd suggest that you simply connect the LEDs through a resistance. The proper value is determined...

DIYnewbie9: By the way, your calculation for wattage is off a bit, i.e., by a factor of ten. (746 watts = 1 HP; 4HP = 2984 w)

As long as you are unobstructed for wiring at this time, why not simply run two 20a lines for the computer location. This will be adequate for now and for the future. Use 12awg with 20a CB. The...

I've found that so many people who've done basements, etc. were almost oblivious of upgrading the utilities. Add outlets for convenience and don't forget any telephone and TV cable hookups.

Any relatively sensitive relay, magnetic or solid state, should work ok. You asked: is the input voltage separate from the output voltage? Not sure what you're asking. A relay transfers whatever...

That red wire on the pipe was never live. Had it been, it would have done damage. You would have had a blown fuse or tripped CB, and probably a hole in that pipe.

With the switch out of the circuit did the 40-75V disappear? The switch is the only item that could have a bit of leakage. It likely will not show up on an ohmmeter, but will when the full line...

The demon chaser you may need is a stripchart recorder from your power co. measuring your service over an extended period. This will establish any surges happening, when and how much.

Don't think there's a problem with the fuse voltages. Most common fuses are rated at either 32V or 125V maximums.

There should be no problem in using a 24V contactor (relay) to control your pump motors. It's unnecessary and inefficient to run 120v switch leg lines. The same is true in reverse; when the pumps...

Your requirements at this point are minimal, hence a single 240V line should be adequate. As your band saw draws 18A, I'd be more comfortable with a 30A feed.

You may have a bad battery, but you are seeing the open-circuit, no-load voltage. With a normal battery connected, it should drop to its nominal voltage.

The neutral is used when the 240v appliance has various devices which work from 120v. Otherwise, the white neutral wire has no purpose and take note that the potential from either Hot to ground is...

Script Error Warning Popups

These warnings indicate script error on a certain line and ask if I want to continue running (YES/NO). Any idea of what these are all about?

Mobile homes are much the same as cars built on assembly lines, hence the manufacturer wires the unit against a set wiring diagram. Going by that diagram wil help you troubleshoot you outages.

Electrically, you can do what you've described. But from a practical viewpoint, I'd prefer the sprinkler control to be on its own circuit with a GCFI.

It's quite common to extend wires as you describe. As for the old ("inferior") switch, you'd hope that after 90 years you won't disintegrate.
