And to think that we now have controllers that will save the program away from prying eyes and stubby fingers. They screw it up and you just restore it... at a fee, of course.

The worst modern timers to deal with are the Irritrol SlimDial and this POS from orbit.

ROFLMAO, he now sits at a desk in a climate controlled enviornment, and he still feels left out when the dinasours talk antiques! Pop a buckner and chill

BTW, since antiques are being discussed, what do you suppose it would take to re-build an old RC18A? that is what was orginally installed for the greens and tees here. Someone replaced it with an ESP 16LX+, and I'm betting it was because they had no clue how to fix it. Anyone tried to get parts for something like that lately?

Check with R-Co Parts. Might be called The Source now. They carry a boatload of obsolete parts.

I've never really had a problem with the SlimDial. I don't necessary like it, but programming seems easy for me. Mainly because I am used to it because there are a lot of them here.
