The day that I drove the car home, we had our first winter storm of the season. Freezing rain and slush. Plow drivers mu...

Re: Insurance Problems?

If your house is paid for, You don't need house insurance. Instead of paying for insurance, save your money so hopefully you can pay to repair is something goes wrong. Me.. I worry more about some faker getting hurt on my property and suing me for a gazillion dollars.

Don't give up. Keep harassing the manufacturer. Tell them that your lawyer advised you that there are laws requiring manufactures to supply service manuals for the products they sell. See right to repair If all else fails. Send a email to the genze.com with your lawyers name as a Cc: If you don't wa...

Re: Can I use 18ga silicone wire as an 120volt AC extension cord?

You can buy 3 conductor wires in most gauges. Even home depot will have 20 or 22awg single gauge. Cord Plugs - https://www.homedepot.com/s/cord%2520plug?NCNI-5 If I was traveling, I would buy speaker wire which could be an option. Split a length for the 3rd conductor. https://www.amazon.com/RCA-AH1...
