re: Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - rustyjohnson
95V is way too low. If by some chance they skimped on the wire run to your shed, you may get lucky and be able to re-run that or you might find a high resistance connection somewhere in the chain. Odds are you’ll have to run all the way back to the panel with a decent sized conductor. ...

re: Electrical wiring issue - outlet reads 120V but not getting full power - rustyjohnson
Those are high power devices. You probably have significant voltage drop on that circuit under load if it’s a long run from your primary box. Put your voltmeter in the outlet and turn on your blower and see how much it drops....

re: Basic electrical question? - rustyjohnson
Yes, bare ground goes directly to fixture. Eta, and no, the neutral cannot touch the bare fixture. Neutral is a current-carrying conductor....

re: Professional Engineering Exam: Power (Need Reference Material) - rustyjohnson
Highly recommend the testmasters class. 3 weekends in Houston were worth it. I bought the spin-up book and the ncees book and reviewed those before/during/after the class. I'm no genius and was really well prepared for the test. Get an approved calculator and learn to use it before the class....

re: Any outboard mechanics know about Johnson ignition modules? - rustyjohnson
Not sure about your specific issue but I have a '98 and it's a tank. Loud & thirsty but relatively simple and reliable. Template Marine in French Settlement had a guy who was really experienced with them. He diagnosed and fixed a few issues and has mine running like a top. This was last summer s...

re: New Boat - Need Advice - rustyjohnson
The previous owner had huge green letters on a white hull on the boat I bought. I used 4" eraser wheels (bought on amazon) made for a drill and it took them right off. Slow process, but it worked well....

re: 6 weeks too young to get a puppy? - rustyjohnson
I picked my yellow up at 6 weeks and he's been great. He's always been very social but it did take a little time to get him to stop playfully biting. Not sure if it was from taking him or him just being a puppy. If I had to do it again, I'd still take him at 6 weeks....

re: WeatherTech floor covers - rustyjohnson
I got the weathertechs for my supercrew. Love the front, they're thick & fit like a glove. The large mat for the back is absolute garbage. Never fit right and is now all curled up. So I have mixed feelings....

re: For those with T-tops... - rustyjohnson
I did it myself & it really wasn't bad. Lined it up and marked my holes then drilled them slowly. 4 screws in each leg with some 3M 5200 under. Hardest part was getting the stabilizer bars attached to the console since I didn't have much room to work under mine....
