Good morning James, Unfortunately with the lack of access you have to the mobile app, the only other option would be to mail the check to the Credit Union in Alaska. Since you stated that the Philippine Post Office is ...

Re: Got the inverters

With the first 14 panels my power bill went from around 6,000.oo pesos, ($120.oo) to around 3,000.oo pesos, ($60.oo) a month. I am expecting it to drop to near 0$. I would like to put in central A/C and still keep the power bill under $100.oo a month. :idea:

Bkeepr, My last three years in service was 1975 to 1978, at Ft. Richardson AK., just after the Viet Nam war ended. The moral i...

Re: Stihl chain saw problems

I had a PULL-ON with a 16 in. bar in Alaska with the same problem. What I discovered was that with the heat of running it. The bar oil tank would build a little presser after shut down and push the oil out. What I did was to set it down with the fill cap up and then loosen the cap. It didn't complea...
