This voltmeter is the old, cool analog kind with a needle that moves from left to right as voltage goes up. Made by Simpson, about 2 inches across. Bet you could get one on ebay. Of course the new ones are nice-- digital etc and just plug into an outlet like one of those air fresheners.

I guess I will pull some #8 wire through the conduit. Not looking foreward to that.

The voltmeter I have is an old analog model like you used to see in old movies. Pretty cool. Made by Simpson. Probably find on ebay. Newer ones plug into an outlet like an air freshener.

don't forget to use "soap" on those wire pulls. it will make it much easier. especially if it's long.

pull a small rag through the duct with the soap on it first. it will spread it throughout the entire length. then refish and pull your wire.

liberal amounts make it much easier, we use 5 gallon pails of the stuff for long pulls in 6 inch duct!

The problems I had with my 69 Airstream Armstrong AC were impossible to fathom because of inadequate power to the unit. In the shop & on the road it did well, but not at home. Make sure you have at least 10V to the Airstream. 30 amps is preferable with older armstrongs. Next check the freon level. Hope this helps

Dave,

How far did you have to pull your wires? I've got a 150 foot run from my breaker box to where I'm planning on putting my 30 amp recepticle. I would love to use #8 instead of #6 to be able to run my a/c without problems. Bob
