UPDATE ON LUXURY TAX OPPOSITION

 

Luxury Tax OppositionFollowing its seventh annual “Day on the Hill” lobby day in Ottawa last month, NMMA Canada is continuing to advocate against the federal government’s proposed 10% luxury tax on recreational boats over $100,000. History has shown that similar taxes have failed to raise the expected revenue for governments while putting thousands of rural and small-town jobs at risk.

HUBBELL CIRCUIT TESTER VERIFIES CONNECTIONS WITH EASE

Hubbell Circuit TesterChecking shorepower connections for proper wiring can be time-consuming, especially when working in dimly-lit or difficult-to-access locations. An innovative UL- and CL-listed Twist-Lock Circuit Tester from Hubbell Marine speeds this process by using simple LED visual codes to indicate electrical circuit conditions.

The patented, compact design of the HBLT26CM11 Twist-Lock Circuit Tester closely resembles a standard Hubbell Twist-Lock Plug. Once inserted into a 30A/125V receptacle, its LED back panel immediately displays whether the circuit is complete and properly wired.
