Eric, love the spirit of your videos. I, like you, wing it (and love to wing it), but you are less stressed and irritable than I am. Keep up the great videos!

hey thanks for that. i think most successes are when you wing it. its the best way to learn sometimes.
Eric, in your video you sure show patience with multi-tasking with the dogs, explaining the job, and working with your wife. It would be better, as your wife mentioned to have the work area safe ahead of time. Like, for instance that ladder, no cover down on the truck, the right wiring, safety glasses and you should have mentioned at the beginning of the video to check if the electric is off. Safety should be #1.
