While this thread started with Bob revealing his illegal and unsafe 
practices of back feeding his house (and potentially the local grid)

mounting in the Prius as I am in the "vehicle engineering field").

So now Bob has been forewarned and should he hurt or kill someone he 
is @%@%^ with his insurance company and the local authorities!

Sorry it had to be said!

Let's move on!
