Question about Electrical Supplies

As an emergency responder during Hurricane Earl I met a woman on St. Croix, American Virgin Islands who has an ACME ADX 600-700 generator for her home. She is looking for a recommendation for a manual or automatic power transfer switch for her residence. I can't find any info on the generator and consequntly for a switch recommendation. Can you help?

That specigic generator is manufactured by Acme-Lombardini. I'd suggest she go with a manual power transfer switch, simply because it's less problematic.

    Actually the switch model will be dependant on the desired output of the generator. I would recommend that a swith by evesco or lombardini would be best. The lombardini web-site list numerous options and provides assistance.

I purchases an elcipse pellet stove in 1990. It still works perfectly. I need to replace the insulation blocks for the side walls and also need a new ash pan. Do you know where i can purchase these items.

Elcipse was manufactured by Warnock Hersey, but was sold to St Croix. So, their parts may be interchangeable with your stove. Try Pellet Stove and click on other brands for St Croix.

My 1995 Mercedes Benz E420 has lost power gradually

Have you check the transmission fluid level? It sounds like it is low. You might not have a dipstick in that unit. I'd add at least 2 quarts and test drive it.
