and BTW congratulations for tackling this rewire job yourself....it's all part of the fun of owning one of these rigs....paying somebody else to do what I can do (or learn how to do) doesn't do anything for me...at all.
And the scare about the thing going up in flames???? well that's what insurance is for (and remember to take pictures).
Some how I don't equate an amateur doing selfguided on-the-job training with the "fun of owning", and using insurance as the back-up plan for ones mistakes. I hope this isn't another example of the "Using Common Sense" theory I often hear being bandied about.
And insurance won't be a lot of help if an incident happens when you are on the road or if someone should be injured as a result.
and LP work is not
best learned from YouTube videos or by trial and error, the risks are much greater than any possible monetary loss.
And, in some states, such as Washington, doing you own work of that scope without a required permit, can be illegal, and could result in denial of insurance coverage should there be a fire.
