I Love the Gates' manuals Larry.  They are actually very good, however
somewhat simplistic and even humorous on certain things like one
section about powering up with both rectifiers says "..Are you feeling

I think a lot of this was they wanted the users to be safe, rather
than sorry, or worse, dead.  Some of it is written as if some
"appliance operator" would actually be doing the installation, setup,
and applying power to the tower.

Thanks for the thoughts!
