Electrical Questions? Ask an Electrician Online.
I wanted you to tell me what I needed to look for to KNOW if the wires came into contact with salt water.
I wanted you to tell me if I could replace some lines and not all lines
I wanted to know if the water would wick up the old fabric insulation. I asked these SAME questions TWICE. YOUR NASTY f**kING COMMENT ABOUT ME RATING YOU POSITIVE HAD YOU HAVE TOLD ME TO LEAVE THE WIRING ALONE IS IRRELEVANT AND STUPID!
YOU didn't answer my questions at all! You just wrote, "you asked and the only answer was given" HOW does that answer ANY of the 6 questions I asked. THAT doesn't even make sense!
AND THEN I ASKED you again! YOU GAVE ME A LINK! I wanted specific information. I told you I DON'T KNOW WHAT CAME INTO CONTACT WITH SALT WATER? HOW will I know? f**kING GUESS? Rip it all out? I CAN'T! I can't afford it! DO I HAVE TO RIP IT ALL OUT ON A WHIM?
I ASKED YOU WHAT TO LOOK FOR TO KNOW IF THE WIRES CAME INTO CONTACT WITH SALT WATER. What? descriptive wordes, corrosion? discoloring,
would the fabric insulation wick the water? that was yes or no. that was it would wick the water 10ft.
I'm sorry for the flooding in your state. So,sadly, you actually KNOW how I feel. The 3rd picture you sent was AMAZING! FEMA refused to cover the ANY electric other than that which was UNDER WATER. I didn't know if I could 'trim' 14" of wire of all of the electric lines leading into the box! The 3rd picture you sent answered that question. This might sound dumb but do you have a reference for those pictures. I have to argue with FEMA as to why they need to cover all of the electric--because I can't replace SOME of the electric.
As an aside, while we were waiting for a trailer that never showed, I have a HUGE black mold problem. FEMA doesn't cover mold. Insurance doesn't cover mold. You would think that the taxes the gov't took out of my husband's paycheck every week, someone would feel they should give SOME of it back for disaster assistance. HAHAHAHA!
Thank you. I really appreciate how well you answered my questions.
