The suivel of the second stage eos oceanic does not slacken remains giving turns

I think you mean the adjustment knob, because the swivel should always be able to move, it allows for better hose management. It can be removed but I do not see the swivel on the 2nd stage in that picture
If it is the adjustment knob you will need parts from an oceanic dealer or try might be able to get some grey market stuff It Keep in mind scuba equipment is life support gear and someone could get hurt if it is done wrong

How do I reset code on my gun vault GV2000

Enter the 1,2,3,4 factory number.
When the door opens, immediately press all 4 keys are once and release.

A red light will come on. then enter new code. lamp will turn off.

to confirm the new code enter it a second time.
red light blinks, an error has occurred or your timing was off, so just start over with the factory 1,2,3,4 code.

I have installed a pace Edwards jack rabbit roll up toneau cover on a 07 tundra. The mounting clamps are attached at the front of the rail near the canister and about 8" from the tailgate. The problem...

As you may be aware, the knob has to be rotated to pull in the latches so you can open the top. When you pull on the strap to close the top, I releases the latches so they will stop at the 1 ft intervals.

1. Make sure that when you pull on the strap, you see the knob pop back to the lock position (handle going side to side) If it stays in a front to back orientation, the strap is not pulling on the latch release.
2. On either side of the roll top, there is a plastic block that keeps the latch bars in place. If one of the screws falls out, you will lose control of the latch on that side so it no longer locks the cover at any of the intervals.

I've had a jackrabbit cover for the past 8 years and I've only had a couple little issues related to the latching. The things i indicated are what I found to be the problem at different times.

Hello, there are a few things that may have happened. Often octos pick up sand and grit when they get dragged on the bottom. Try a good vigorous shake in fresh water. After that your moving into badly seated diaphram, split diaphram or slight hole, badly adjusted spring etc etc etc. Would recommend that perhaps you get it serviced. Especially important if you have been using Nitrox. Hope that helps

T v Problem

there is a Main Board that is kinda like a computer motherboard where all the components are on. When you turn it on has good contacts....then as it warms up. things change...heat expands in most cases then contracts when cold. When the TV warms up...the board is slightly changing shape and thus pulling part of the contact strip out or causing it to be misaligned. I would advise against fixing this your self as the Capacitors inside the TV hold a very powerful (and painful) electrical charge even after its unplugged for a period of time. Capacitors are kind of like batteries, They hold very high voltage until it is discharged. IF you feel confident and you have safely discharged the capacitors (if you dont know how then dont try) take the rear cover off and on the bottom is a big circuit board that probably just needs to be pushed in...but pull it out and then back in just a little to help it seat a little better. I hope this helps DO AT YOUR OWN RISK ! TV's can Bite!

Mares Abyss Octo, brand new, not breathing well

It's possible that the perceived free flow problem is causing a more general lack of faith with the reg?
A correctly set up reg will never be too far away from free flowing in that transition from air to water - just as you dive in. This is not uncommon and shouldn't necessarily be determined to be a fault. Some manufacturers have gotten around this issue by allowing the user to switch the 2nd stage to a less sensitive setting (small knob on side 'pre-drive' & 'dive'). This means the reg can still be set up correctly but effectively put into an incorrect (for diving) mode while you are bobbing around on the surface getting ready to go down.
The fact that the abyss doesn't have this mode doesn't mean it isn't working right. If your shop adjust the sensitivity too far, they are going to make it harder to breath with. I have a couple of Abyss and sometimes experience small free flow. Nothing to worry about. You can look it up but the reg has been down to some record breaking depths without issue.
You haven't said which is your main reg - but the poseidon system runs a much higher pressure between 1st and second stage. You absolutely should not use this octo with poseidon, unless it has been ok'd by a authorized poseidon dealership.
In summary I can't see that your two problems are linked.

What side does the octopus go on? left or right?

The reason to have it on the right is because that is "standard". I dive with a long hose (7') and an octo around my neck on a 22" hose. So long as you explain it to anybody you dive with and talk about your plan for air sharing in advance, it shouldn't be an issue.

Safe second?

"The second stage regulator takes the manageable pressure coming from the 1st stage through the hose and delivers it to your mouthpiece in a way that is comfortable to breathe. Where the 1st stage is only concerned with letting air flow into the hose the 2nd stage has more complex machinery which handles both inhaling and exhaling through the same mouthpiece. Like the first stage the 2nd stage scuba regulator uses a diaphragm or piston to open a valve. Breathing in from the mouthpiece reduces the air pressure inside the chamber, water pressure pushes the diaphragm in, which opens the intake valve. When you stop inhaling the pressure in the chamber balances and the valve closes. The result is an air delivery system which supplies air only when you are inhaling and does not leak air constantly through the mouthpiece. A well balanced and well-maintained scuba regulator does its job so well that breathing feels natural and effortless despite the all mechanics involved. The second stage scuba regulator also has a purge or exhaust valve, which lets your exhaled air out of the chamber, but doesn't let water in. When you exhale into the second stage scuba regulator the pressure inside the chamber becomes greater than the ambient pressure. The exhaust valve is a simple one-way valve which lets this air escape. The second stage scuba regulator also has a purge or exhaust valve, which lets your exhaled air out of the chamber, but doesn't let water in. When you exhale into the second stage scuba regulator the pressure inside the chamber becomes greater than the ambient pressure. The exhaust valve is a simple one-way valve which lets this air escape. A second stage scuba regulator also has an ""emergency"" or ""purge"" button which forces the intake valve to open. When the purge button is pressed air will flow continuously into the chamber and escape either through the mouthpiece or the aforementioned exhaust valve"
