    • Grumps told me.........."Kid, if you don't start getting better grades in school........you WILL find yourself digging ditches" So......maybe Grumps was just spit-balling but..........I own a mini excavator AND a Ditchwitch 1230......both have dug a lot of ditches at various properties we own........AND........digging ditches is just another ......."degree of education"   I was a bit reserved to suggest the ........"Climb-ditching" method of ditcher trenching but it can be done ........IF.......IF you realize that it is a ............."ADVANCED HILLBILLY TRENCHER OPERATION"........ Obviously with "Climb-Ditching " the trencher chain tends to pull the trencher ahead naturally and the trick is that the hillbilly-operator needs to hold the trencher back from getting too large "bite" and then you might find yopurself trenching on land or flower beds that you do not own..........   If you decide to try "Climb-ditching" you might try it a few time in a open area about the size of 10 football fields and perhaps you might tie a rope around the spark plug wire and tie the other end to your belt loop sorta like the "Dead-man-switch" on a jet ski..........   If you decide to sue me your in good company............good luck finding a lawyer that dumb.......   Or...........perhaps go back to school and get better grades.........Grumps always said " Folks that got good grades in school have folks with poor grades dig their ditches"........   Drive / trench on..............of course the ditch has a curve in it.......the plans had a fold right there.......  
    • I actually screw a bolt in the ramp now. I used simply friction first few times. When I discovered one moved backwards some on me, I changed that. Glad no one or anything hurt. 
    • Then that is what you should be working.  As others have said, get it straightened out with your boss now.  Or leave.  Your home has wheels. When I look at w/k jobs, I only want FHU, unless it is in a state with no income tax.  Even then, I do not want a FT job.  To determine what "I" believe is a fair exchange of hours, I take the MONTHLY rate, + $100 for electric IF it is not included in the monthly price.  Then I divide by the LOCAL minimum wage.  That give me the MAXIMUM # of hours PER MONTH I will work.  Divide that by 4 and it gives the hours per week.  For example, monthly lot rent is $500, electricity is $100 per month, local minimum wage is $10 an hr.  ($500+$100)/$10=60.  So I will work a maximum of 60 hrs per month or 15 hrs per week.   I use minimum wage unless some specialized skills are needed, but usually they are not.  And, if there is a "seasonal rate", I use that instead of monthly rent.   I look at several different w/k pages.  There are A LOT of parks that want A LOT of hours for only FHU.  There are also parks that pay for all hours worked, but they usually want a lot of hours.  I have seen some parks in AZ that give enough hours to cover site rent.  They pay a wage, then you pay the site rent.  When tax time comes, you pay tax on the wage that covered the rent.  Good deal for the park, bad deal for the worker, IMO.  So you have to know what you're signing up for. As always, your home is on wheels.  If you're getting the shaft, load up and leave.
    • That was NOTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT me mentioning removing ground pins, that was a quote of Mike Sokol. See above, I say the GFCI works independent of any ground, ONLY the Hot and Neutral pass through the Torroid Coil NO ground wires IE they sense and detect ONLY hot and Neutral currents  Hey I know you know all that as do I,  but so many do not, maybe together we can help educate them ??? Always a pleasure sparky chatting with you Dutch, thanks for your comments John T 
    • I expected you did, John, but then you mentioned removing ground pins to defeat the devices which doesn't work besides being dangerous.
