I would venture to guess that whoever installed the speakers originally probably followed the same wiring convention when it came to polarity for all four speakers. Thus, if the three speakers you...

Gunguy, I only average around 750 miles a year on the Explorer. I mostly use it to haul grass clippings to the dump site, since 30 gallon trash cans won't fit into my Ford Fusion's trunk. I've...

Did you remove the drain fitting knockout in the new dehumidifiers you bought? Almost all I've seen will collect condensate in the bucket, unless the drain fitting knockout is removed. If you did,...

I think all LED bulbs are made in China, regardless of whose brand name is on the label. One thing I've noticed is that as the prices of LED bulbs have come down greatly, so has the rated lifetime. ...

You don't mention if this is your first winter with this furnace, but I assume it's not and the furnace has worked fine in the past. A couple of easy things to check first before digging into the...

I bet this flashlight, like most I've seen, was made in China, and as such, no parts are stocked in the USA. It's meant to be tossed in the trash when it fails. The LED assembly is intended to be a...
