Ride info.

I think wifey and I will be loading up the truck trailer and Wee to go north to camp in Medway on Memorial weekend. Looking for a route that will be quiet,scenic and places to stop and eat, etc. Gravel is not out of the question it just has to be mild with her on back.

Do you routinely descale the heater? I don't own one personally but have talked about on demands in depth with my boss who has designed a couple heating systems around them. According to him they will work fine then all of a sudden stop working in a unpredictable manner. The issue every time has been scale build up. Apparently descaling is an important yearly maintenace routine.

If you're up for some simple wiring you could always install one of these as a back up to at least be able to finish your shower before going to reset the other one.



From what I've seen the breaker in the shower is optional.

Picked up another bike. XT600 is going to be a summer project, and I couldn't wait to ride.

99 Sv650. With 2,000 miles! Little dents on the gas tank and a ripped seat, mint otherwise. Crappy garage pic:

Nice T... Real saga going on here... Congrats on the Guzzis, one can never have too many.

Safe travels.

had not thought of that, but since this has been happening since day one almost I don't think its the culprit THIS time. though it seems something else I need to explore

thanks for the input

Ummmm wow?

that is quiet a piece of engineering there. If you don't mind though, I would like to find a slightly more permanent fix.... that piece just wouldn't "fit" with the ambiance of my bathroom. I don't have any blue in my color scheme.

It wasn't at this particular place but at one with a similar 'water heater warmer' Dave sez the water was warm. I get in afterwards and can barely stand the cold stream coming out of it.

"Jiggle the switch around a little bit...maybe it's not making contact."

*jiggle, jiggle, jiggle*

- green arc glows through the plastic housing -

"Ahhhhhhh...warm water..."

Complete opposite of what's been driven into our heads about electricity and water.


If I had a camp one of these would be in my suitcase on the trip home. Then again, if I had a camp I wouldn't be able to travel...

My experience is in Mexico - a place that I really want to spend more time in honestly - but it seems that many of the Latin american countries are similar. They do a LOT of that type of "get by" engineering. The city sewers can not handle the load so you don't flush your paper. There are people who make their living by walking around town with a bucket and a sponge (and MAYBE some soap) washing cars. They dip the bucket in the city drainage system (read sewer?) and get your car "clean".

If this sounds like I am criticizing, it s not my intent. Its just a couple of examples of what has worked in their culture for many MANY years that people in our culture could not imagine. WE think electricity and indoor plumbing are requirements for normal life. THEY prove that it is not. I respect that.

get out your Maine atlas before reading this....pg 44, 52, 32,33

be sure to ride Rt 116 south from Medway taking the Butterfield Rd to the right 5-6 miles out of Medway. It comes back onto 116 in Chester. When 116 turns left to go across the river towards Lincoln, stay straight after a mile or 2 the road is dirt and goes to Howland (Mattamiscontis Rd) turn right on North Howland Rd which is a mix of dirt and pavement towards Milo. Just before Milo take the Pleasant River Rd towards Brownville, stay on the east side of the river until Brownville Jct. then Rt11 back into Millinocket area

Or take 157 from Medway to Mattawamkeag and Rt2 to Molunkus then take the Aroostook Rd up to Sherman and then Rt11 back to Medway
