Jeff,


Did you learn this lesson the "hard way" on an earlier inspection? Just another reason why I don't do P/S's--in addition to the fact that there aren't any around here.

Actually I did, but not on this large of a scale. It was embarrassing to say the least, but it didn't cause any damage to the unit. ![icon_rolleyes.gif](upload://iqxt7ABYC2TEBomNkCmZARIrQr6.gif)
