    Bought a nice used topper, but the previous owner didn't want to mess with the wires for lights and fans so he chopped them off. Now I'm trying to figure out how to reconnect the darn things.

    Hey Bryan -
    I too have read Water Dog and it will always have a place on my bookshelf, but there are also more recent books and videos that can be helpful, especially if you want to compete.
