I won't really be out the money Del, but thanks for the thought. My pal probably got them for nothing, left over from a previous job. I'll send him up the mast
or put him on the dumber end of something if his ego can handle it.
He's still wiping his nose after he "wired" my new Sterling charger
. It didn't work and his counsel was some weak BS about programming. I'm one of those wimpy guys that reads the instructions so I doubted that. I sweated out watching the house bank go to 50% before I turned everything off.
Monday morning, I'm about to call tech support, and I stared at the setup long enough for me to realize he hadn't run the new positive cable to the batt bank itself.
I found it curled up, forgotten, and out of sight. 10 seconds later, all was grand, as the charger
put out 30+ amps for hours.
I just installed the last new handrail and could have used him on one end. Still, my (3) vice grips drank no beer
, and I didn't have to listen to any BS. I used MS's butyl tape to bed
them. Sure is less hassle and less mess than goop in a toop.
I'm not unhandy, just slow, and not yacht quality
work usually. I just put teak
plugs in the handrail thrubolt holes. My neighbor was impressed. I thought to myself, "is there another way?"
Thanks to all for the comments. I've read about those Groco adapters. You just know I've got that mismatched thread thing going with my mushroom thruhulls. If I can't get them wholesale, I'll try HopCar. I'm in a boating
community, tho, so things are generally available. Especially used things.
