The first one I removed was brittle from age and heat. It had a crack along the housing covering the magnet. I'll see how the second one looks when I get it out. I'll have to see if I can find my small files, maybe I can clean the contactors up. Pretty much just like how we use to clean points in a distributor.

Finally finished the install of my new forward AC. It required 12V DC for some components, and since I didn't have 12V in the AC hole I got creative. I used a 120V AC to 12V DC Converter. Just wired it onto the same 120VAC wires the Air Conditioner uses and tucked it away up there. Works great, and now I have 15K cooling and a heat pump where previously I had a really noisy (like 75 db) and not very cool 13.5K air conditioner. The new Air Command unit is about 1.5 inches taller but the design looks like it is going to move air a lot better. Also the unit is only 55 db sitting on the couch.

I saved the components and parts to the old Duo-Air. I'm guessing it is a problem on the circuit board since the compressor, capacitors, and thermostat all tested out well. I just wasn't willing to spend more time on it. I'll bring the roof unit, interior trim, thermostat to WOG if someone wants to take it home and play with it.

I have been trying different covers for our two roof vents to try to keep some of the Texas heat out. We have had good heat rejection with these inexpensive covered phone blocks, but our roof is too thin to hold them in very well, so we were resorting to taping them up. It looks terrible. So I just bought one Maxxaire cover to see how it does.

It looks decent and has a spring loaded roll up cover that is reflective on the inside.

It won't be too long before it gets tested by real heat.

You might consider replacing the lid on the Fantastic fans with the double-wall insulated one. The white ones (which I have) let no light through and are much much better at keeping heat, light, and noise out than the regular ones. It's two molded pieces with about a 1/8" air gap between them when they are bonded together.

K2020-81 is the white one. Here's a cutaway of the smoke one:

What did you do to strap down your TV?

I just removed the 1989 Toshiba in the front of my SP36 with a Vizio 32" flatscreen (put one in the bedroom too, very nice unit for cheap money at Wal-Mart) on a good swing-out Sanus mount that I mounted to a board braced into the hole left by the TV. I used some 3M Command dual lock strips to secure the stand arm in the flat position but this is likely not enough.

Off to FL on business tomorrow for a few days so I can continue to think of a solution, but would enjoy seeing yours.

I mounted a 27" flat panel on a double swing arm. Bracket had maximum vertical adjustment of 13 degree down, needed 15 degree. Mounted arm on 2"x4" post 2 degrees out of plumb, used 3" strips of 3M Command dual lock strips on arm to hold flat panel in line with overhead cabinet face, worked fine. If I had mounted arm 15 degrees out of plumb doubt if it would have been secure, last thing you need is arm swinging flat panel into someones head (when travelling/ turning).
