Hello All,
When I am not using my Dynamis system is there any harm in leaving the receiver powered up with both LEDs flashing?

2Jims-

It's always best, safest and most economical to turn electric things off when they aren't being
used. You might even shorten the life of your equipment if it's always left on.

You don't leave all of your lights on 24 hours a day, or your car constantly running in the garage,
do you? The same principle applies to model railroading.

Hello,
Sorry if I didn’t make my question clear.
I’m not talking about 24/7 or overnight. I’m not even talking about when I leave the pike unattended. I’m talking about, well...like right now, I’m replying to this while the receiver is powered up and the handset is turned off to conserve battery power.
Should the receiver be unplugged too?
You don’t power down your computer every time you answer the phone.
Thank you for your thoughts.

JJ-

OK. Now I understand what you meant. No, it won't hurt anything if you leave your system
on for a little bit while you take care of something else.
