our poor son, who, along with his newly-minted wife is a newly-minted homeowner in VA, is rapidly growing disenchanted with the minor, vexing details of... home ownership. I feel really bad for him/them, and I am too far away to be very helpful.
As an example, the garage door (remote) openers are operating intermittently. He's changed the batteries. He and I differ in our opinions of the likely root cause. He's thinking RFI (which is certainly possible) -- I am thinking the remotes themselves are wonky (e.g., pushbuttons worn and working intermittently).

If the remotes are old and from the previous owner, they likely are worn and possibly corroded. If they have little IR lenses on them, if those are covered in shmutz that will interfere too.
But, honestly, I'd replace the openers or at least change codes on the openers. Who knows who the previous owners gave codes and remotes to.

Don't know how keen the dumpster company will be if you torch their can, buuut you could just claim an act of god and absolve yourself from any repercussions. Sounds fine to me.
Next time, just get the 30Yd. Most disposal companies charge the same for a 10/15 as they do a 30...
At least up here they do.
