    My Industrial Cabin Build

    Life is never boring, is it? Best of luck on the rental situation. If you can swing the camper situation I think that would probably be a great solution (if I were in your shoes). Rob

    Arc fault is different than ground fault circuits. Don't know the details myself, but they are two different types of protection.

    That's a great point and worth emphasizing. If there is a way to wire the light boxes with the neutral wire method it will open up a much wider range of smart light device choices. Might not mean much now, but in 5 years it might really be appreciated. Rob

    Likely because working with 12 in a box is more difficult. I always try to get the widest and deepest box I can make work for the application because I hate trying to nicely stash 12ga wire into them.

    Starlink

    Regarding support, once you are a customer they are very responsive. I've opened a couple cases with them and they provide good customer service. They (apparently) want to limit the volume of work coming in from non-customers during the beta time. While it does deliver a less-than-stellar...

    Yes, a deposit, versus full payment for purchase, will have no expected delivery timeline until they are able to expand capacity. The service is 'available' everywhere within the latitudes they currently cover, just with a limitation of only a certain number of customers per cell. A cell is...

    I assume you didn't place and actual order in February ($500+), you paid a $99 deposit? You can play around entering different addresses (i.e. from nearby your location by a mile or two) and see if any result in a "service is available" message. You can do that without cancelling your deposit...

    John Deer 997 diesel won't start

    Well, if the battery is known good then fuse or safety switch are the likely culprits. Check all fuses for blown ones. Try to jumper safety switches to bypass them. As mentioned above, make sure battery terminal connections are in good shape and tight. A lesser possibility is the health of the...

    Untreated lumber for uncovered deck?

    Well, Rust-Oleum makes a product called Creo-Coat that is great for preserving and protecting untreated wood, above or below ground. But it is black and likely not something you'd want on a deck.

    Bad Boy Rogue zero turn mower

    Thanks. Looks like a decent kit for that price. I bought a couple Mictuning light bars about that size to mount on my Deere 2520 compact tractor and they have been fantastic. What did you use for wiring and switch? A rocker switch that fits the blank spot on the Rogue's dash? Rob

    Would you mind posting what you actually used for the lights? Looks like you have a lightbar and a couple spots? I have wanted some on my Rogue but didn't want to spend the $250-ish for the BB kit. Thanks, Rob

    Because all the facts aren't known yet. Charges are brought based on facts, not emotional reactions. Straps work loose.

    The Bose QC35 have permanent rechargeable batteries. They don't use AAA. Or were you referring to one of the other brands above with the AAA comment? I can mow for 4.5 hours with my QC35s and battery is only down to 80%. They've been great that way. Yes, they don't completely eliminate tractor...

    Noise cancelling headphones.

    I see this is an old thread, but since new conversation has come up I'll chime in. I use Bose QC-35 when mowing my 7 acres. They work well to reduce the mower noise and allow me to hear my music very nicely. I have nothing else to compare them to so I can't say whether they are better or worse...

    Yeah, if they phones are that old and can't get beyond Android 4.x I can see where there would be many opportunities for things to not work. Android is up to 11 now. Maybe a friend or family member would stop by to help you out and put the Starlink app on briefly to do the obstruction stuff? Rob

    Those images seem like you're in a browser on a desktop. How do you get to the obstruction map in a web page? I have 'Obstructions' section under 'Support' but it is just a text page that say "Not obstructed". Wonder if the map would show up only if there are some obstructions? Rob

    If your own router supports static routes or complies with DHCP 'option 121' then the stats and app will work behind it. The former requires you to set up the route (as another response here notes) the latter would just work. Rob

    Zero Turn Tires

    I have the Reaper tires on my BB Rogue. I find them to cause quite a bit of skidding and turf damage. Even for things like just turning around a small diameter object like a 8" tree the inside tire will usually skid a circle as I go around. And I try to not be very aggressive. Similar thing when...

    Unsecured hay hauling

    They are still accidents even if they were caused by incompetence or laziness. I think a huge part of the reason people don't pay attention to securing loads is because it isn't talked about or taught much at all (i.e. in driver's training or school). If you don't have a parent who passes along...

    I think a world where nobody can ever offend anybody else would be pretty boring. I see you only have 5 posts here. Give it time and you'll realize it's all in good fun (well, mostly).

    If coming out of beta doesn't mean a more unrestricted sign-up capability then what would it actually mean? "We're now calling our service 'production' but you still need an invite to get in" doesn't mesh.

    Good news! Hopefully the cell limitations will be gone. That would enable things like suspension of service, moving service to another location temporarily, etc.

    In MN we don't have restrictions like that. As long as the vehicle is passing another the left lane is OK for any. As a cycle rider I always, always pay special attention to any trailers or vehicles loaded with cargo. I know firsthand how challenging it is to strap down stuff securely, having...

    No, you cannot place the order until they e-mail you and let you know there is a spot open in your cell.
