    Re: Flickering Lights

    Too bad you took offense, but the lack of info is frightening to posters on the board. And as we can't see your garage from where we all live, one wonders how to help when presented with so few...

    Re: Upgrading electrical questions.

    I too would be leery of the two quotes he gave you.
    Without seeing the job "option 1" sounds like a waste of time and talent. In my world upgrading a 30 amp feeder to a 40 amp feeder is next to...

    I had always though all units recycle, top vent or wall vent. It just depends on how your needs set up. Also would think a few on the market don't.:D
