At the point they sent a tech out to repair it, he saw it was mounted on my Motorhome and before even checking it said "there's the problem" who was it that said to not argue with the stupid? Well I didn't listen , I even took him over to a bus I built 15 yrs ago that still has the original carrier home Ac on it, said see they work just fine, if they aren't made in China! The more he opened his mouth the more ignorant he became , and less respected. Long story short they wouldn't fix it under warranty.

To answer the power draw question , I have a power share circuit protection system on the Motorhome , and I tested the unit I had , it's 220 volt Ac is 24000 btu with heat pump. It would draw 12 amps for compressor and outdoor fan and indoor fan on leone 2 would draw 9 amps so 21 ampers when the compressor was running

Roger the "Chinese made crap". Bigger problem is that nearly everything available in America these days is "Chinese made crap".

I was a loyal Milwaukee tool buyer for nearly 50 years. When they moved all their production to China...I quit buying the brand. Screw'em.

What brand did you replace the Milwaukee with?

I have some Swiss made Bosch, but it is getting nearly impossible to find anything actually made in the USA or Canada anymore. Snap-On was one of the last hold outs but nowadays, most of their stuff comes from all over too. And what they do make here in the US costs 2-3 times what other brands run. I looked at their 18v drill driver but fell over when I saw it costs right at $500 bucks and only comes with one battery.

And it is getting harder to tell where anything really is made what with all the mergers & BS. I think Black & Decker has plants in Mexico which I would take over China any day. Makita has factories in the US but also in Japan, China and Europe as well. And then there is Festool out of Germany. Good stuff but pricy and little or no support in this hemisphere.

If anyone has more info on tools NOT made in China...please...chime in.

These are made in Canada, but.....they're over 30 years old. IMG_3649.JPG

Yes the lock out button was removed, I'm a lefty and it kept locking with the palm of my hand......large bits got tricky when they jammed.

Older tools often equates to better built tools.
