    Re: Mounting Tool Box

    Yes, it sits on top of the side rails. So I can drill and bolt it, but

    The issue with the small wires in the fixture is that they are short. Remember that the power loss in a conductor is I^2R and that R is proportional to the length and 1/(cross sectional area). What...

    Re: O.K. to bury emt conduit in ground?

    Go PVC. Cheaper and a lot less work.
    The other guys are right the EMT won't be water tight and will rust over time.
    PVC will outlast you as long as you don't take a backhoe or similar to it.
