[quote] The GFCI in the picture is a 15 Amp, everything inside of the bathroom is on a 20 amp circuit. Remember this, a breaker is designed for 80% load, meaning 16 amps. The hair dryer and hair Iron pull the most amps. That will be the main load items. The tooth items draw very little. The iron an...

Grabince off Airline at Siegan. They had decent prices and were able to measure, model, demo, and install in about a 2 week timespan. Very friendly folks. [link=(https://www.grabince.com/)]LINK[/link]...

The venom is unique in that it vaporizes when the snake is beheaded and is breathed in by its attacker who dies a painful death several days later.

ID This Baby Snake

I’ve found at least 2 of these in my house in the past week. I think they’ve come in around some old weatherstripping on the front door but any suggestions are welcome. [img]http://imgur.com/snJlCGg.jpg[/img] Sorry for the single pic. Removed the head via razor blade and brought it out to the...

re: CFL to LED for can lights?

[quote] Remember, LED lights have a switch to set brightness. Make sure you like the brightness on the first one, then set all the others to the same setting.[/quote] I think you're actually referring to color temperature. A lot of the newer ones have an adjustment from 2700k-5000k. Lower on the ...
[quote]Everyone who lives to the age of 18 can conceal carry without license, fee, training, or background check.[/quote] Louisiana is one of almost 30 states to allow it and the majority of those states passed constitutional carry years ago.

[quote]Also, see below as an example of the damage the squirrel(s) did to the wiring.

Very clean install. Looking good :cheers: [quote]One example: I found two 220V circuits that were cut and LIVE in my attic and attached to energized breakers in my old panel.[/quote] Did these cables end in a junction box with wire nuts over the end? If not it’s definitely good that you found ...
To pull the heads and reinstall factory lifters (DOD included) is probably $2500 in labor and around $500 in parts. The DOD lifters are a lot more expensive than standard ones. One other option is to have the engine tuned and AFM/DOD disabled and then take a delete kit to a shop. Just pay them t...

[quote]Johnson lifters[/quote] I was between the Delphi LS7 lifters and the GM performance ones. I went with the latter because AMS Racing told me they’d have the best reliability and are rated for 8k rpm. Not that I’ll spin the motor that much but I like the reliability :lol:. [quote]The AFM ...

AFM/DOD Delete - 2018 Yukon Denali

Posted by bapple on 3/18/24 at 10:19 pm
Bought a used 2018 Yukon Denali with 96k on the clock in fantastic condition but I know the ticking time bomb that is the AFM/DOD lifters so decided to delete the system. But I'll give background to those not familiar... The Active Fuel Management / Displacement on Demand system was likely create...
I actually just got my 2018 Yukon Denali back from getting a full AFM/DOD delete last week. I plan to do a larger writeup about it but if it's a simple tick, it could be one of your standard lifters. However, if the tick becomes a tap and you get a cylinder misfire warning light, you have a collapse...
[quote]You need to hook the blue wire to the C terminal on the control board of the air handler, likely in the attic.[/quote] This. Most thermostat wires will have a spare conductor that is unused in the cable. So land one of the spare wires (likely blue) on the C terminal of the control board in...
You won’t notice much change at all most likely. But a recent study in Ohio specifically showed almost a 10% reduction in violent crime across a few big cities since they passed it. It doesn’t prove that the constitutional carry law caused it (correlation - causation) but it does disprove that passi...

re: Attic Fan experience

Posted by bapple on 2/29/24 at 7:58 am
You have to be careful not to have too strong of a fan or it can create negative pressure in the living space and pull conditioned air into the attic. But I’ll admit my limited experience and having read that factoid in an article somewhere a while back :lol:. ...
