  1. I just hooked up my 12 year Concorde RG-35 to the BatteryMinder (its getting cold here again!). I think it helps, but I also sweet talk my battery and massage her terminals to let her know she is loved.
  2. Hey Jerry! Maybe you and Don could go into business and build us a "Cheap Bast$#d Battery Test Box"?
  3. I am wonder if placement of these unit has an affect on the readings. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  4. Must be something in your neck of the Northeast. I monitor guard here all the time with IntelliAudio. If the squelch on 121.50 was open a lot, it would have driven me nuts. All I hear, other than the Guard Police is the periodic guy yelling "Guuuuuard". Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

  6. Alex -- went through a similar situation with my JPI 900. The JPI EGT was jumping around in a similar fashion as your unit is. Periodically the JPI internal troubleshooter would put a "bad probe" message on the display. I ordered a replacement probe from Aircraft Spruce and went to replace it. When I looked at the connector fro the harness, I found the connector loose. All I needed to do was tighten up the connector and it has been fine since. When I spoke with JPI, they said a failing probe would most likely just go open and not display a temp. Hopefully yours is as simple of a fix. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  7. The wires that come with the BatteryMinder are not FAA approved for permanent installation. The kit you referenced is the kit with FAA approved quick disconnects and attachment hardware for the battery. I bought one a few months ago, just haven't installed it yet.

  8. The wing loading on a Mooney is higher and it will be more stable than a 172. I have 300 or so hours in a 172. The 172 controls are cables and pulleys while the Mooney use control rods. A Mooney going through turbulence is traveling faster and you will feel jolts instead of the wobbling feeling. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I had a similar incident but mine was the exhaust riser. One of the flange bolts was over torqued leading to a fatigue crack failure and the other nut vibrated off. Let us know the findings. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  10. I think the 35 probably was some exhaust that you picked up on the ground. I have been in 3 Mooneys with this detector and they are all showing between 5 and 10 in flight. I think this may be the norm. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  11. Are you the same guy who said we needed to have our seats recertified if we added a headrest? (Don't answer that, I know you are). [emoji3] I have seen some interesting usages of iPads in the experimental world. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  12. Love the rubber ducky! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  13. Same here. I have moved onto Streamlight although I still like some of the Coast products. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Usually this means it was insured for less than the repair value. When that happens, the insurer will total the plane and pay the insured the value of the insured value. Something to pay attention to if you have a good amount of money invested in a plane. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
  15. See, I told you. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro
