Stus-List Icom RIP

I have had an Icom IC-M1V HT for over 15 years. It is the best radio I ever had, but lately the battery has been going dead quickly. I bought a new battery for it for $90 and that battery showed up DEAD and won’t charge ☹ I think some EBay sellers got a hold of a bunch of never used but

We recently updated the 12V system on our 33-2 this year. We reached out to an ABYC marine electrician for advice about our plan. I won't re-hash other thoughts in the previous emails, but my two cents: - Connections are often an issue and the first place to look. Connections may visually

Bill, Harbor Freight is your friend.  Stop by the Muskegon HF and pick up a $5 set of picks.  You should be able to get one of the angled picks into the pin hole.  I have a set on the boat if you want to come down to Whitehall this weekend. Neil Schiller 1983 C 35-3, #028, "Grace"

Thinking about Tef-gel and recommended practices by experienced people, I once coated my trailer lighting harness connector for a small boat with lanocote. My thoughts were as the prior posters, that it would keep away future corrosion and perhaps improve connections. I tested the fitting after

There may be a complex, microscopic explanation. But the short answer I picked up as an ME and in years of being a technical trainer is that the action of crimping, staging, etc. to get a tight connection forces the dielectric out of the way and gives connectivity through metal to metal

Oddly enough, trailer connections are one of the "electrical plugs" which I have mashed silicone dielectric grease into. I never had a trailer light problem that could be traced to the connectors. Maybe, in your case Bailey, it had something to do with it being lanocote? Josh On Thu, Aug 15,

OK guys, here is an explanation from my Missile Control days.  What the Tefgel is doing is acting as a "faying surface" sealant.  Big words for describing that the Tefgel is filling in all of the crevices between the actual contact points. Remember that there is no such thing as a smooth

Also interested in where the heck you put the batteries - like Michael, I stopped with 2x group 31 plus a start battery. I think I could cut out the existing battery shelf and maybe gain a few more amp hours with an incrementally larger footprint/height but that’s it. Agreed on some of the

Neil, I forgot about things like missile contacts. Perfect example though. In a similar way the 13kv, 4kv,and 480v breakers that I regularly work with all have "stabs" that engage and disengage the bus bars. All of them have a lubricant applied. I don't know anything about the chemical

Jon, No yard anywhere will let you do work on the hull. Suggest you do what I did — move south. Now I only haul the boat once every 5 years to slap some paint on and then back to sailing a couple of days later. Winter storage? Rather be winter sailing. All the best, Edd ———-
