Panzerwilie can you elaborate on that comm/ sat nav setup?
Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
I had a flatcoat retriever that did that stuff. Anything long and thin got chewed. Rope, hose, wire, whatever. She just munched it all into small little pieces.You might try putting some cayenne pepper on the wiring. Maybe mix it with a raw egg and spread it on the wire? Messy I'm sure, but probably less harmful to teach the dog that way than waiting for him to chew through a welder's 220V plug or something.
We tried the pepper spray anti-chew stuff with my roommate's Border Collie / Aussie Shepard mix, the dog still ate through the fence. We then found out we could feed the dog as many jalapenos as he'd eat... other than really bad gas, no side effect. That dog liked the hot stuff....You might try putting some cayenne pepper on the wiring. Maybe mix it with a raw egg and spread it on the wire?

I got me one of these here thingy's: http://www.handsontools.com/assets/images/j-33043.jpg for a great buy. I was just about to make one when I found one at a really good price (about 1/3 of what I'd seen them go for). New and unused in original packaging. At that price my time making one was paid in full twice over.
I set about to adjust the vacuum valve on both my trucks. The valve on the M1009 was set all the way rearward. Shifts into 3rd were sloooooow. I had just replaced the modulator with the ATP red stripe equivalent, and it did improve the shifting a bit, but not enough. I adjusted the valve to the specs in the -20. Had to rotate the valve completely forward to get the specified vacuum. Now, my wife says it is way more powerful . I didn't have the heart to tell her that it was only that the truck was now sifting where it should have been. Plus, I likes to look like the hero once in a while.
The M1008A1 was spot on, and already rotated fully forward.
BTW, I used 3 separate vacuum gauges to ensure I set it correctly. So, either they are all set now, or I have 3 gauges all messed up exactly the same.
The procedure in the -20 TM is very straightforward. Attach a vacuum pump to the lower nib on the vacuum valve. A vacuum gauge to the upper (transmission) nib. Pull a 20 inch vacuum, rotate the throttle until the stop screw contacts the J-33043 gauge block (detailed image in the TM). Rotate the transmission vacuum valve until the vacuum on the gauge reads abut 8 inches. Secure the valve, and double check.I got one of those from eBay about a year ago, have never tired to use it yet. There is a post here on how to make one and use it, but most people just trial and error the shifting. I have followed that process, but since I have the tool I need to learn how to use it.
Below is the part information for anyone interested.
