I hope you answered Yes” to the question above. So, let’s begin with defining what service absorption” means. We paid premium for this little gem… mainly because we’re not the handiest folks and knew that there would be very little we could do ourselves. When we searched for a Shasta our biggest red flag to avoid was any sign of water damage inside. I’d seen many a video about people’s renovation horrors and knew I wasn’t up to that level of reconstruction. I can barely find a philips screwdriver in my house.
The RMS voltage of an AC waveform is the effective voltage and similar to the average voltage. If the peak voltage is Vpeak, then the RMS voltage for a sinusoidal voltage is Vpeak / √2 The power in a circuit is the RMS voltage multiplied by the RMS current flowing in a load. The voltage normally printed on appliances is the RMS voltage even though this is not usually stated.
Finding what is draining the battery can be tricky, but sometimes your ears will help you find the culprit. SureTrack community member kenscssvc had a Chevrolet Impala in their shop because the owner complained that the battery kept going dead. The charging system checked out, but while working on the vehicle they heard some clicking sounds under the dash. They posed the question to the community, and with the help of fellow community members dmckemie12 and ironnutz, they were able to resolve the issue.
Some people have reported that Irish Spring soap or peppermint oil is helpful as a deterrent. Others have said they didn’t help much. I have not heard of using peppermint candy. It doesn’t seem that it would be a strong enough mint smell, but if it works for you, go with it. Since you have some proven success with the traps, I would keep using those as well.
Give some of your time away to your customer service from that part of yourself that has empathy and you can’t go wrong. If you have a female friend, ask her about her ideas on empathy. Women are often well versed in empathy and will explain to you! They have experienced being treated like an idiot by auto shops, and will tell you how they would feel if treated with respect and empathy when they have their auto serviced.
You will spend about the same amount of time wet sanding with 2000 as you did with 1200 or 1500 grit, but you will need to be more careful and keep track of the parts you are done with. For an untrained eye, there won’t be a noticeable difference between the two types of scratches, so just make sure you sand evenly and thoroughly, though, once again, be careful not to overdo it. The sanding pattern is the same as in step two. Don’t forget to rinse and clean each part before and after you are done.
