some get liability insurance and if they have workers, workers comp or the like. yes, some clients do ask as they don't want to get sued if someone gets insured on their property. others may have more to offer.

From a previous entry of mine - What I do: * Turn off water supply at curb stop or well. If shallow well, drain pump. * Open hot and cold at all faucets. * Turn off breaker; drain hot water tank. * Find lowest points in each water circuit and

Any pipe, supply or drain, that is not in a heated space needs to be drained. The water heater should be drained. Make sure it is turned off or the elements will burn out.

Back in 1986 I doubt there is anything that is monitoring the socket other than if there is a load or not (may throw a light on the dash indicatiing a bulb is out) If it does not have that indicator, you can use any socket you wish as long as it fits

Note, the part was updated for a reason, poor quality, short life, past issues and yours being dead tells me that was probably the case. Buy the newer updated version as the older one may be new but may fail just the same.
