Good idea, Hblick. I use the standard Montana backflush and shoot for 4-5 minutes of rinse. I haven't had any problem except when I get distracted and let it run too long (new tank required...

Also, to see if the breaker is bad, try swapping with another breaker. I think there are at least 2 of each wattage in the panel, but maybe not - take a look.

My trailers have been moderate weight - 5800 per axle, so I run Michliens. I usually get 40,000 or more - one year only 30,000 because of axle mis-aligned. So 10k or 20k is way too few miles. ...

For those using Craigslist, how to you handle financing? Do the buyers get bank loans and you meet at a bank? I have heard even cashiers checks can be fake or bogus. I am just curious. Also, 4-5...

You might get one of those pressure tank things(?) that attach to the pump. It evens out the pressure drop, I guess and allows the pump to run less often. Sounds like a good idea to me, but I have...
