Hey BruceI. Now I'm starting to smile . I didn't want to voice my theory because I wanted to see if anyone else would come up with the same idea based on the symptoms without my suggesting it. This is getting close. The Sporty has circuit breakers that re-connect after cooling down so you are right on (I hope).
Have a dream, live it. Set a goal, achieve it.
