    Make sure you plug it in to the lower outlet. Everyone knows the cold settles downward so that electricity is colder and cools better. The top outlet is for heating.

    I do not think that ford pickup can carry tons of stuff unless it is high density. Just not enough to put it. A station wagon has a bigger cargo area.

    This is a good time to learn that lock washers do not work. This has been known for about 150 years. Locktite does work, if needed. Fine threads on the bolts is probably all it needs.

    I think the cable has to cover the entire eaves and up several inches onto the part of the roof above the actual building. Wider eaves thus require wider zig zag.
