Yes Charlie,that switch gets corroded,it not designed for outdoor use you could replace it for one that is more weatherproof you know it's good to have a switch upstairs when something goes wrong and your on the catwalk health and safety and the related bull ****

Your right my transport business is a small proportion nowadays plus my health is not 100%,so I have a guy that I am training up me thinks I have about another year left doing hands on work,got a serious operation that has to be done asap and I keep delaying it,your correct about drivers on units with rubber hoses and seltec style compressors the drivers need to have more capacity,best of luck with that tk unit.
