RE: Great new electrical connectors

They use the same style of jab in connector terminals on some switches and receptacles. Less then desireable connection. Rated for different gauges of wire but may not work well with small and large wire.I believe these are rated by code to allow to be covered in a wall without a J-box. In essence rated same as continuous wire by code. I have never seen a code that allows splices to be "buried" in a wall apparently nobody reads the code then. try 334.40B, kits have been available for years.. page 195 on NFPA 70 in wall splice kit Home Depot Kit Just because they make them doesn't make them legal. Apparently you read the code wrong. Those splices are allowed for exposed work per sec 334.40. we were talking about buried in the wall. Re read the code sec 300.15A Need a box for a splice there are exceptions but the application talked about is not one of them. pretty sure I'm not, not sure how else to interpret concealed Code

RE: Windows 10 Email Program suggestions

I have been using Thunderbird email program on several of my Windows 10 PC's.. Lately the program is not responding / halting on ALL of the Windows 10 computers. Want to switch to another program but what? Outlook? any other free email programs other than G-mail worth the time effort? I use Outlook all the time and have for years. I find nothing to "not like" about Outlook. The thing I most like about Outlook is that whenever I "clean up" my emails in Outlook, the emails are merely eliminated in Outlook - but NOT ELIMINATED on my main account I can access at my email provider's website. I can go to that website to check emails that for instance, I may have erased by mistatke from the large library of Outlook email folders I normally keep on my laptop. I can also keep certain important informative emails stored for years in my account at my email provider's website with no concern for running out of space. I hate the email app on my smartphone: Whenever I clean up emails on my smartphone THE EMAILS ARE ALSO ERASED AT MY EMAIL PROVIDER!! :M this sounds terrible, why would u want multiple versions? if you delete a email by mistake it goes in the trash, you can recover it right from outlook. that being said if you really want this design, change your phone app from imap to pop3 and this issue will go away, emails will delete on the phone and stay on the main email server for the guy who said gmail doesn't support imap, it most certainly does.

RE: Wifi extender using a satellite dish?

what exactly is your budget for this, they make wifi stuff specifically for this? and how fast do you need to go? and is there any obstacles in between

RE: Dual batteries, DC to DC chargers, isolators, AGM... HELP!

I think (hope) LittleBill meant “Put the output of the DC-DC charger on the main lugs of the secondary battery”Now I'm even more confused. How can I charge the secondary battery if the input and output are the same? =)The DC-DC charger will have power input connection and power output connection. Connect the input to the start battery. Connect the output to the accessory battery. Remove the other charge control relay. yea don't do this, this will kill the start battery if you run down the secondary, not to mention the constant drain from the charger running all the time

RE: Dual batteries, DC to DC chargers, isolators, AGM... HELP!

already told you how to wire this, put the input of the dc-dc charger on the main lugs of the secondary battery option, this will charge the secondary battery correctly, but you will not be able to parallel them for additional capacity if this was your intention It was partially my intention, yes. But also, it still doesn't address the need to properly charge the starting battery, since the OEM alternator will not do that properly for these types of batteries. What is the purpose of connecting the DC to DC charger input to the Genesis output? Why wouldn't I just completely remove the Genesis isolator? Trying to learn here... your not going to be able to do that, does this kit come WITH the battery's? its not worth the expense to try to change the start battery charging characteristics, personally i would change the battery to one that falls inline with the charging style of the jeep. the reason to keep the isolater is simple, you run your accessory loads off the secondary battery, fridge lights radio's etc, and if you kill the battery, you will still be able to start the truck. thus the need. you can take it a step further and add another solenoid to get your jump start feature back, but thats another topic. and no the input of the dc-dc would come from the isolater terminals going to what was the second battery, the output of the dc-dc would connect to the 2nd battery.

RE: Dual batteries, DC to DC chargers, isolators, AGM... HELP!

i have to say im confused. this looks like a custom designed product for the jeep? an expensive one that's for sure? i find it hard to believe they didn't design for this. that said if your just using the secondary battery and don't need it combined, then its easy, disconnect the second battery, connect the dc-dc charger to output of the second battery wiring from the genesis kit, and connect the output of the dc-dc to the second battery and that should be it.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

I know all of you that worship Elon. But advertising "autopilot" and that you will have software to make your Tesla a "autonomous taxi" to make your money back, and NOT BEING ABLE TO DISTINGUISH STOPPED EMERGENCY VEHICLES is horrific in my mind. Yes, it was driver error based on advertised "safest vehicle in the world". Unbelievable how some of you rationalize your beliefs. I have values.UMMMM... No. There are no self driving Teslas. Plain and simple driver error. Tesla clearly requires all drivers to stay in control. You must be the person that worships Elon and Tesla if you believe the vehicles have more capability than they do. killed a few quotes... The main problem as I've repeatedly stated is Elon. Tweet, tweet "autonomous taxis this year", "full self driving soon", "semi in 2018", and of course I paraphrase because I don't feel like proving to you that he could be some of the cause of the stupidity. Also because he WON against that poor cave diver. What a class act. Anyway, here's tesla's own site. If people don't read... click Here's the other half of the equation. People DON'T read their entire manual. When you buy a car, and wind up with a 350 page plus manual (yep, Jeep Cherokee) or capability to view online, a lot of people will just ignore some of the manual. So of course you'll have people ignoring things they should read. Still the manufacturer's responsibility to phrase it correctly and Elon is not much help there. I have to ask, is it just the media or do Tesla's get singled out because of their hype? I mean, there are other cars with driver assist features, surely those people must not read either. Where are all their crashes? My father has a Grand Cherokee with some type of lane follow/center feature. When it's on, and set to the highest setting, it will move the wheel to stay in the lane. It's a bit unsettling, if for example you wish to pass a State Trooper on the side of the road, the wheel will almost jerk itself out of your hands. An example of a learning curve perhaps. did you use a turn signal? lane assist generally disables if the blinker is on, since it expects to leave the lane

RE: digital photo storage

For those that need definition -- SSD is a hard drive, but Solid State Drive, nothing to fail, no internal fans or moving parts.I've had more solid state devices (SSD, USB thumb drives, SD cards) fail then mechanical hard drives. Nothing is 100%. Another note: My working SSD is 2T, but my backups are only 500gb, that way, if something fails, I only lose SOME data, not all data. Um what? if your 2tb hd fails, the size of your backups is irrelevant, unless your talking about some kind of file corruption, which still makes the storage drive size irrelevant

RE: Midsize car for towing

as far as i am concerned the ratings are generally ****. reason being. the chevy cavalier had 2 motors, 2 trannys and a 20 hp difference, one was rated 1k one was not rated to tow anything. do you think the lower one had any trouble towing? it didn't and the cars were known well, same EVERYTHING short of the tranny and engine, and you could get the 4 speed in the lower engine which i had.
