G.F.I.

To day i would like to talk a little about gfi's (ground fault interupters).They are used in restrooms as well as outside.If you ever have outside plugs or restroom plugs that are not working ,you may go around and check to see that all of your gfi s are set.You can do this just by pushing the button in the middle.If you are replacing a gfi make sure that your line side is to the bottom screws the top side is for your load.Thank you for looking at my blog.Please check my past post for other helpful tips

trailer house hook up

I get a lot of calls to hook up trailer houses.So today i am going to tell you how to do it.First off i would not hook up smaller than a 200 anp service for a large trailer house.If you are putting in the pole it needs to 3 feet in the ground and your service needs to be 12 feet high so at least a 20 foot pole.The pole should be treated so that it will last in the weather. I am not going to go into a materal list because if you are do it yourselfer you already know what you need.When you mount your metercan put it a no more than 6 foot high and add you panel underneath.Drive your ground rod down inthe earth so that just 4 to 6 inches is above the ground .Make sure that your ground wire hits the meter can before it is hooked to the panel.your nuetral and your grounds need to be bonded,so do not remove your bonding bar.I hope this gives you an idea how to do it,if you have any questions or would like for us to install one for you,give us a call 361 433-6039.Thanks for looking at my blog and check past post for helpful tips on wiring.
