Got the new topside control pad wire ran down the inside of the cabinet like I wanted... no wires run on the outside of my spa, thank you very much. This ain't no ghetto hot tub.

Also I replaced the two hot phase 6 gauge lines with ones that are long enough to fit through the grommet like they're supposed to. The old lines were 6" too short so I had to temporarily route them through another hole with no grommet.

I also replaced the outside power shutoff switch that wasn't working. Now I don't have to go inside to flip the GFCI breaker every time I need to power down for some reason.



And the topside control is now mounted in its proper location, instead of sitting outside on the ground in a gallon-sized ZipLoc bag. All it needs now is a 3/16" oval trim plate, some silicone sealant to make it watertight, and the overlay label for the buttons to be applied. And, eventually, a brand-new cover. Hunter green, with hurricane tie-down straps.

Man, I've forgotten how much I LOVE having a good, functional, reliable hot tub. For most of the nearly ten years I've owned it, I was in it every single day.

Dang! And I though the time I grabbed the the little yellow handle to open the electric fence across the cattle gap while talking on the cordless phone was a shocking experience!
