    Did you lift your bed when you added 16.00's?

    I saw, somewhere, that a guy welded 1/4” plate under the bed where the wheel would contact, in order to keep the braces from tearing up his treads.

    Thanks kendelrio, The AC , VIC 3 and Air Ride seats make this a completely different vehicle. The VIC 3 allows you to have conversations on the phone and with passengers at highway speeds.

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    Mine was in terrible shape. You can tell it’s a patch, but it looks just fine. I think It’s a good idea to paint covers to protect them against the sun and wind.

    Behr Paint Jobs- Show me your MV's

    On that note, I had a cargo cover that was worn to threads in parts. I painted up to the threads, then I wet a bedsheet with paint and laid it across the damaged area. Then rolled paint across the edges to make sure it sealed. It has held up for 5 years and many 100’s of miles.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I’ll ask. I wonder if my city will allow it. I don’t know the code here.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I tried to get a quote from another electrician. They wouldn’t do it. Said their company isn’t allowed to install interlock kits. They sell Generac and I guess they have some sort of agreement to only use Generac parts.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    240/50a I had considered wiring it for a 20kw/100a generator. It wouldn’t hurt. Labor is the same, how much more could the wire be? $200 more? I have to talk to the electrician anyway. I’m going to ask.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I have the generator in my garage now. I fired it up yesterday. Even in the garage I was impressed with how quiet it is.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I realized that’s the cost to run it, it’s not just the wire cost. That’s their money on this job. My fat azz ain’t pulling this run. Up 2 story, across a hot attic, back down and through brick and hook up. Nah. They can do that. I’ll stick to just pouring the slab.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    Tractor Supply stall mats come to mind here. Do you bolt your generator down? Or is it fine just sitting there?

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I just took delivery of the generator and was thinking about this. I have neighbors and don’t want to run a generator any longer than I have to. I need some way of notifying me that my power has returned.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    Ah, yes. One more thing. They do allow an interlock kit here, so I can choose my loads based on the season (AC in summer, more options in winter since I’m on natural gas). The electrician also said he would tell me the real amperage, start up load etc of all the favorite circuits.

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I got a bid that is better. $2300 all in. Interlock kit, labor, wire, etc, etc. It’s 100’ run. The wire is listed at $1500. I guess that’s where they are making their profit. I’ll manage the slab, but since you won’t catch me running conduit up the side of my house and crawling through the...

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    Is 6/4 the correct size for a 70’ run? Do I need a ground and neutral?

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    I got a bid for $2300 plus the cost of the transfer switch. The run is about 70’ (includes slop, jic) in 3/4”emt I buy the switch I pour the slab I set the generator I’m no electrician, but $2300 to run wire and install switch seems high. Am I off?

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    Don’t tell me that! Now I have to dive into the world of raspberry Pi. I have resisted this for years!

    Transfer switch MEP-803a

    It’s the Generac 9855. I think he just googled 50 amp transfer switch.
