    Is the service to the unit even big enough for 80 amps? Who wired that thing, the house is gonna burn down.

    In rush hit 90 I hit hold as it went in overload, cycled it four times and took my SPP7 back off, I think it was an 30 amp circuit with a FPE breaker :}

    You know that pic with the auto fuse on the low volt isn't a bad trick... In a pinch it could work, just have to remember that it is 24vAC and not 12vDC...

    As for hitting 90 amp inrush, it's amazing that nothing melted down or arced..
    I r the king of the world!...or at least I get to stand on the roof and look down on the rest of yall

    A 5 amp fuse will save a lot of transformers, but not all, the 50va transformer is 2.08 FLA, I thought that fuse trick up in a crawl space for Harmony III controlling a two stage Lennox. 90 amp FPE Breakers are known not to trip, I believe that’s why there out of business.

    Good job finding the leak on the comp body , those are always such a pain to find. After all everyone knows Comp bodies dont leak its always in the piping.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.
