First and foremost, you need to check the Motor's voltage requirements, and match it to the voltage of the GFI you have connected to the House current.

The best way to do this is to use a volt meter at the GFI receptacle. Although it's likely the voltage at your GFI receptacle is 120Volts AC, you shouldn't guess on this. If you know what circuit breaker this GFI is using to get power.... you may be able to determine the GFI's voltage if you know how to distinquish between a single pole breaker and a two pole breaker (120Volts is derived from a sigle pole breaker, 240volts from a two pole breaker-which is twice the size of a single pole breaker).

Now the Motor: Most common Pool Motors are dual winding motors, on which, the voltage requirement could be changed to match the voltage supplied. On such a motor, there's a compartment where the cord is attached. Within this compartment, there's a configuration of screws or terminal points, and a related schematic which depicts the proper connections for each of the voltage options. By following these schematics, you will know how to connect the motor based on the available voltage supplied by your GFI protected receptacle.

I assume you mean a gfci recepticle? If this is the case you need to take the black wire from the house and pigtail it to go to both the recepticle (Black / Line) and one line side screw of the switch. The white wire from the house goes directly to the line/white side of the recepticle. Also pigtail the ground to go to the green screw on the recepticle, the green screw on the switch, the green wire from the motor, and the ground screw on whatever box you're using. When you purchase the switch make sure you get a two pole switch rated for at least the amperage of the motor. The red wire from the house and the black wire from the pigtailed black will go to the two line side screws of that switch. The red and black from the motor will go to the two screws on the load side of that switch. Make sure to ground everything properly being so close to water. The cover needs to be sealed securely and I recommend the cover that has the lever to activate the switch as opposed to the little door over the switch handle. Also make sure the two breakers supplying those two circuits have a handle that turns them both off at the same time.

My Nextbook next8p12 Has 3 wires running to the battery red/black/white. All the replacement batteries I see online only have the red and black. Will they work?

They will, but i don't know if i would trust them. The white wire is the thermistor, its what the charger inside uses to monitor the battery temperature. So in case something goes wrong with the charging it can sense the overheating and stop trying to charge the battery. Will the battery work, of course, unless the Nextbook requires the temp sensor input to allow the battery to be used, some devices won't recognize a battery without a temp sensor input and will say there is a battery fault because its missing, and some will work with it but may or may not even charge it because it doesn't see the temp input when it tries to charge. Best suggestion i could make is try it, but i also would suggest you get a proper battery for it, lithium batteries are scary enough when they fail, not having that safety could be even worst.

How to start it

just plug in the wire to socket..
switch it on ...
you are dont...
if it is a computer power supply , then you have to short two wires..
on supply wiring you will see a green wire... just short it with a black wire...
you can connect these two wires easily by a paper clip...
your power supply with switch on... its fan may not start but when you put load on it.. fan will also start..
red wire is of 5V
yellow wire is of 12V
and black wire is Ground....

How do i connect my battery up in a 1998 jayco 5th wheel

If it is like mine, a whit or black might be used for a ground. Look for a wire bolted to the frame or metal somewhere. Red should be your hot wires in to your inverter.

Jayco camper has 6-plug connector------car has flat 4-plug connector where do green,yellow,brown and white wires from car flat 4-plug connector connect to on yellow, blue,brown,red,green and white wires...


It would be easiest, and best, if you were to upgrade the cars' trailer connector. The 4 way just supplies brake, parking, turnsignal, and a ground. The colors are the same on the 6 way, but 2 lines are added, usually for a electric brake controller and aux. circuit. Be careful about using the battery line (Red) on the 6 way connector unless you are also upgrading the white wire to a heavier gauge (at least the same size as red).

Green - Stop and Right Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Yellow - Stop and Left Turn Signal (4/5/6/7 way)
Brown - Running Lights (tail, side, tag) (4/5/6/7 way)
White - Ground / Negative (4/5/6/7)
Blue - Electric Brakes (5/6/7 way)
Red - Aux. charge line for emergency break away, battery charger, etc. (7 way)
Purple - Aux. backup lights / other purpose (7 way)

I just picked up a hot tub and i need to know how to wire it for 110.

First you need a supply or a home run to your panel, or you can tie on to another circuit. With hot tubs you should ALWAYS use a GFCI (ground fault circuit interrupter) breaker or device or you could die from electrical shock (water and electricity don't mix!!!!!!) if its a hot tub its not likely that its 120v because of the heating elements and pump usually they are 220-240v make sure you are using the right voltage or you could burn up any controls and your wasting money. Make sure there is a good ground, GFCI devices need a ground to work properly. Other than that, black or other dark colors are hot, white and gray are neutral, green is always ground. Get yourself a tester and find the hot lead it should read 120v to ground or neutral. Be very careful with wiring its not always done correctly you have to check with a tester. With 220-240v you have two hots, a ground,and no neutral unless the appliance specifically calls for it. this can be very dangerous and if you don't have any experience you should probably call a professional. GOOD LUCK

Lights only work in test mode sensor picks up motion

You are talking about a motion detector attached to some type of light I presume. Your numbers mean nothing, I'm sorry to day.

Very first consideration, you do have it correctly wired, right? White to white - black to black - green to green and ground. The red goes to the lamp black wire, right??? (Light White goes to neutral (white line))

I am very familiar with motion detecting lights, working at a large resort at the seashore.

Two conditions that must exist for this light to come on ... it must be dark and there must be a motion. There should be two adjustments on your detector; one is for sensitivity and the other is time the device should remain on.

Dark ... not just sundown ... are there other lights in the area that may cause your detector to think it is day time?

Sensitivity. On minimum sensitivity, your detector is nearly blind to any but the closest movements. On maximum, it will probably see bats flying by. You must adjust to meet your needs.

Does it have a warranty? I dont know. You would have to check the information that came with your light.

I hope this information helps you ... Positive comments are appreciated.

Thanks for clarifying your question and thanks for visiting
