  1. I took the sticker off the auto adjust side but it will have a sticker covering that for non monitor users. mine is the bottom one. New up to date that you want is on top.

    Any rep that knows me better have the rectorseal ready if these "new &
    improved" clocks fail, I'm still steamed over the solenoid issue!:hammerhead:

    Did they ever come clean over the solenoid woes? I remember a data sheet on Rainbird's first gear-drive rotor, and the changes they had been making. I thought it was rather forthcoming of them. (even if it didn't exactly convince me that they really knew what they were doing)

    Came clean in the closet, gave us loads of solenoids, then changed the solenoid to a thicker set of wires (that made multiple common connections
    a royal pain), then recently, changed the solenoids AGAIN to a round version
    with thinner wires! Rain-Bird has always been honest with problems, & backed it up with payments for removal & re-installation.

    I noticed that on their COM/IND valves, but the lower end valves are still using the square solenoid.

    No, the newer Silver Bullets have the round solenoid, like the high enders.
    Tho maybe they're making them special for just the guys that took the huge
    bath!:rolleyes:
