I have not seen an ink eraser since we stopped using blotters and typewriter erasers when I was working.

WOW Jim, you must have been sitting on this topic. You're probably right about the ink eraser being obsolete, I wouldn't know because I've saved one for this use only, and I haven't looked for another for a long time. I learned this trick over 40 years ago while working electronics in the Nave. Ink erasers work great, taking off any film that interferes with conductivity and they don't mar the surface of the contact. You might not need the alcohol, I'm just in the habit of using it while working on circuit cards.

Hi Tom,
I had a military career in electronics, followed by teaching college. I always taught to use an eraser on the circuit card finger contacts, and then gently; just enough to get rid of any crud. I also taught students to gently lift and reset circuit cards and connectors to reseat the contacts. Alcohol wipes comshawed from sickbay were also a nice thing for the techs to have in their tool bags. LOL.

Erasers have many uses, but in today's technology age, they're getting harder to find. Backspace is easier.

Thanks to all for their input.

One/two more LED question(s). With the LED lighting option, how many lights are there to upgrade and are all the coach lights upgraded to LED with that ($200) option?

I think the only light not changed to LED in my 21 is the one in the range hood, and boy is it noticeable.

Alf, great reply, but remember, it's not a pencil eraser, it's a pen, or ink, eraser!

We also opted for the $200 LED option for our 19' and are glad we did. Light are a bright white. Only light not changed was the range hood incandescent, which I plan to change out myself.

Thanks Scruffy. Yup. I got the LED option in the 11th hour and I'm comfortable with it. This 19 will be my new and improved therapy chariot.
