    At my first comm job I worked with a guy that had a setup similar to what skoonen posted, only he used a truck with a fold-out. For some reason, he liked the oxy/ace in a plastic rig so he didn't...

    ha. I would hope that one is the secondary drain so you know when there's a problem instead. If you look, there's another tube running with the lineset down to the unit outside.

    As for working,...

    it's the same stuff that gets trapped in a car. maybe I'm thinking of the wrong thing, but that's what I was told. Some attics actually do get light coming in from outside

    heh. I'd have to post in the wall of shame, but I only have a few pics, assuming I could find them. I'd say I learned more about what not to do than anything else.

    I've never seen really strong flex, but this is attic country down here in Texas. Sounds like you should try a post in the residential forum where more pro's will see it and be able to help you...

    You see those tears in the flex in the above post? That's the problem with it. That foil looking stuff is only designed to stop things like UV rays and other things you might find in an attic or...

    Love the condensate line (I assume that's what the tubing is for). I'm surprised they didn't just let it run out onto the roof.

    How does a guy like that even get equipment? Steal it from somewhere?

    Those pants are awsome. I love mine. Got them from Galls, which is a great place for some hard to find stuff. Their website sucks, but I think we're used to that in our tool hunts.

    Well, in truth, the bag would be designed for hands in the suit, so it would likely be a little akward for our use... I'll see if I can't find it anyway, just 'cause that's really interesting.

    I got into this to make a career of it. Maybe someday I'll find someone who cares about quality more than speed that I can really learn from.

    I've come across more than one dog chewing through 2 wire, but next time you see that, make sure the HO knows that they -can- bite through copper. That was a fun bill to write up on a warranty unit.

    Most of us use common sense, a hand and an ear. Another option is a vinyl tube, which I use to localize leaks (one end to ear, the other to probe). Might help with tracking a noise.
