comment How should I run power wiring and Cat-5 to the perimeter of my huge yard?
Data and power should not be in the same raceway. If you're running both, you'll need two conduits.

Do you smoke, fry a lot of food, and/or have dogs? Have the heaters been cleaned lately?

comment Three hot wires,1 neutral on a switch
Can you post some labeled photos of the wiring? Don't forget, the color of a wire's insulation does not always indicate its function.

comment Connecting dryer vent in new window
Not just any tape, you have to use HVAC foil tape. It's rated for high temperature applications, and it's stickier than hell. It's probably not the "proper" way, but it should work.

comment Connecting dryer vent in new window
If you can get the duct inside the ring, a bit of foil tape should hold it in place. Are there any screw holes in the ring? Does the ring, or any bit of the assembly come out of the surrounding (i.e. is any part of this thing removable)?
