    Sounds like someone already dropped a unit on someone head due to crappy steel.

    Actually that means lifting one unit only ... you see some guys lift two to the roof at the same time ...


    Oh, I have worked on a ton of those units and never stripped out a screw ... it's leftie loosey rightie tightie ... even worse if you are using a drill ...


    Oh, I have had great luck with them as well.

    You mean it wasn't stripped from the factory? lol

    Actually, that hole should have a clip that slips over the plastic. They tend to fall off. I haven't ever stripped one of those.

    Funny part of the compartment warning sticker is that it needs to be closed when servicing also. Just one of the many things I hate about those units.
