Not too long ago, I searched (I think) Amazon, and saw the same installation hardware+board, but when I checked recently I could not longer find it.

It sorta does sound like it's trying to suck fuel into the engine, hence the oscillation of the rpm (about a 1 second cycle).

The "feet" are wrapped in 6 mil poly. I think the idea is, if a storm causes seepage etc., the base plate won't get soaked. Apparently you can also put some kind of gasket under the base plate to...

Beats me how the laser...

I called Chamberlain. Apparently one of the terminals goes HI (or GND...or maybe changes resistance) at the same time the lights activate. This gives the laser power to activate, but the laser uses...

My Chamberlain has R-W-Bk terminals, with R-W for button and W-Bk for safety sensor connections. I presume the W-Bk are 12V, always on, with 1K/2K resistance for inactive/active, like an alarm...
