comment Applying drywall tape - to score or not to score?
I agree. No scoring and just feather. But I usually use the fiberglass tape that sticks by itself for repairs. It's thin so it doesn't take as much feathering.

comment Removing Wallpaper Glue - All of it or can I leave faint bits behind?
That's what I thought I had too - just faint patches, but it still showed through. But I did use latex primer sealer instead of oil based sealer. If you use oil based, you might be OK. You could always try a spot and see.

Try sending a picture to the folks at Blane Window Hardware blainewindow.com/index.php. They have helped me identify parts in the past for windows / doors.

comment how to make a half circle tunnel through a cement slab?
To provide more details for this answer - a diamond blade and a 4 inch angle grinder. It can be used dry. Be sure to wear a mask and goggles. It will make lots of dust.

From all clues, sounds like it could be low on refrigerant

comment Why is humidity high from one unit but not the other?
Does the air seem cold enough? The colder the coil, the more moisture is going to condense on it. Whats the air temp? If you lower the fan speed, that would keep the coil cooler, I'm not sure if that's a good idea or not. If the unit is not operating efficiently enough, it might need a refrigerant check. All that being said, a couple of degrees lower on the thermostat might provide enough humidity reduction to get through the summer and until the weather breaks for fall. One more thing. Is there a source of humidity in the house like a shower without a bathroom vent?
