Hope you bother to it in when you get it. Mine is still in the package it came in. Just haven't got around to putting it in. Plus I forgot where it goes.

My guess is that the seat kit you bought was missing the nut and washer that go underneath. If you bought it locally you should be able to get them to supply the missing parts. If not, you need to...

I had overspray on my truck last year. I first tried car polish, then a light rubbing compound, then stronger rubbing compound, rubbing alcohol, and a clay bar. None of these worked. I ended up...

Another thing to check is blockage in the vent. This could cause the unit to quickly overheat and shut down.

I suspect that your problem is with a thermistor. It's a type of resistor whose resistance varies with temperature. Manufacturers of clothes dryer, hair dryers, electric heaters, etc. put them in...

Good point Bud9051 about the hot, humid air going back into the crawlspace. I am sealing the vents in my crawlspace (in South Carolina) to stop this very thing. But I don't understand why rigid...

You might try trapping them in a cage. I've caught several that way, putting a plastic lid with sunflower seeds inside. I took them to a wooded area and released them.

No, but I've thought about using the cooler crawlspace air to circulate in our house. So your post interests me. Seems to me that if you draw the air from the crawlspace through a large air filter,...

Glad to hear you've tested and it works. I have another idea though, in case you need it. You could lay a piece of 1x4 or 1x5 treated wood on the roof so it's unseen, drill holes thru it for the...

I can't imagine the aluminum supporting the weight of a hammock. Have you tried pulling down on the chain to test for give? I don't know if there are any metal or wood rafters in the porch roof; but...

Nailing the sister rafters would be much easier with a palm nailer. Or, using a right-angle drill and 3" decking screws with square drive heads (less likely to strip the head than with Philips) would...

I like goldstar's idea of painting it all the same color, combined with gunguy's lamp idea, and replacing the numbers with large black wood numbers (like 8" each) arranged diagonally on the left...

I suggest you invest in deep sockets next. And, I would only buy the 6 point ones. I recently rounded off the head on a steel bolt on a car using a 12 point combo wrench. I've done this in the past...

Look at it closely when it wobbles to pinpoint what is moving. Then add diagonal 2x4 braces to stabilize it.

For eight years I annually used a deck cleaner, powerwashed, then restained our SYP deck. Actually, it needed it about every six months. Then I switched to deck paints. I've used several brands. All...

My Trap

Sorry Champion but I was probably wrong with my assertion that the cold air was from the cold water draining in the pipe. See this: https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20060807175430AAOiM2o

Well, you may be right, but my clean-out PVC pipe is capped; so, it couldn't be acting as a vent. I'll have to do some research on this. If you're right, then I probably should remove the cap.

The cold air you feel coming out of the pipe in the first photo is from the cold water flowing out the pipe. It will not affect your cooling cost. The open pipes are for what Bob says, pouring in...
