You might find this out in a few years, but I bet you end up with 2 boats. A boat big enough for 12 doesn't end up being a very good platform for even tubing, and if the kids get into any more...

Sailin, I know I've been consistent in saying "just leave it on". That doesn't make me right about it, just consistent :). But I do think you may have an incorrect impression of water heaters. ...

I don't understand why running the hot water heater for a few hours a day on a timer or switch saves much, if any, energy.

Leave it on, and it maintains the temp you have it set for. Temp drops a...

I would re-visit your thoughts on LED bulbs. You save around 50 watts by replacing a 60 watt incandescent with an LED. Let's say you have 6 different lights on, some for 4-6 hours per day, some...

Some part of this discussion doesn't make sense to me. I think from the reading the issue is that water that is warm, but not hot enough, can grow the bacteria. That is not what you are talking...

To answer your question, with valves open you only get water from the tank if you open a hot water faucet, or push a mixing valve (kitchen sink for example) toward hot. You're right, close both...

No need to shut the valves. IMO you are better off from a health standpoint with full pipes, not pipes partially full and partially with air. By leaving valves open, when you open a hot water faucet...

1) Electric breaker in the fuse box. Possibly a service switch right next to it.
2) No. Full of water, hot or cold, no difference.

I agree with John.

I have a temperature activated exhaust fan at one end of the attic, exhausting out the gable vent. Air is pulled in from the other gable end, you can feel the flow when the fan...

There are 2 types of floor units, single hose and double hose. Avoid single hose, as you say they just don't work well or efficiently. But double hose units bring in outside air in one hose,...

I swam/walked my boat in on the east side last time there, didn't take the chance of being under power. Trail is nice, worth the short walk. Fun place to visit. I can see where it was easy to get...

What I think we know, again not convicted in a court of law but enough evidence for me as a citizen, is that one of the owners and the general manager were abusing kids. That's enough for me. I...

Really? You don't think you've seen and heard enough evidence? Do you think the kids are lying?

WinnisquamZ's advice was good, bring a belt to an auto parts store and they can quickly and easily match it up and give you a replacement.

Dangerous to drive a car more than 10 ft. after doing that.

AAA or any other road service can get into a car in 90 seconds. I can't imagine intentionally breaking a wheel lock pin. JMO

I know what you mean, I've experienced that too, seems like the wheel will barely turn. I guess if you can't turn it enough to relieve the pressure, use the e-brake suggestions above.

If you turn the wheel hard one way or the other to avoid a roll-away incident (I do this too), just make sure you didn't turn it 100% all the way, turn it back slightly. Then, if you do find it...

So if people don't do their lake experience exactly like you, what they are doing is disgusting? Strange outlook, kind of narrow view of things IMO.
