    • My 2011 780  is very quiet inside almost as quiet as my new T880 work truck. What kind of radio does every one install.
    • From the NTTA website: The NTTA is a crucial component of the transportation system in North Texas, operating more than 980 toll miles in the region including the  Dallas North Tollway, President George Bush Turnpike, Chisholm Trail Parkway, Addison Airport Toll Tunnel, Mountain Creek Lake Bridge, Sam Rayburn Tollway, Lewisville Lake Toll Bridge and 360 Tollway. All of these roadways serve as key connectors for people throughout the region. No mention of Houston or Austin Toll Roads.  
    • We each have our own rules for using a map. Some say you only have to drive through a state to count it. Some say you have to spend at least one night there. I once read where someone said you could only mark states where you'd had sex. Linda
    • Wire nuts are not designed to carry current from one wire to the other.  They are strictly intended to maintain pressure on the two or more wires so they stay fully in contact with each other.  If the nut is loose, it was not properly installed.  For 120 volts, the only wire nuts to use have the metal wire inside.  The only place the all plastic nuts should be used is low voltage, such as thermostat wires or communication wires.
    • Wire nut story. No hot water just warm in house with electric hot water heater. Just use light tester at elements and there's power. Change elements and still just warm water. Then change temp. rheostat. Still warm water. Go look at water heater meter and its turning real slow. Cut the tag on box and open door. Electric Co. can remotely cut your power when a high demand. They had wired the receiver box into meter box with wire nuts and one must not been tight and got hot and came off. Moral of story-If I had used a 220volt tester would have known only getting 110 volts. The 110volts would go into element one side and out the other. I like to just use butt connectors with shrink tube if all possible and No all plastic wire nuts. To be old and wise had to be young and stupid.
