2/24/2019 Power Panel


To misquote Tom Hanks, I Made Power! I’ve done a connection test to see if I understood it all. John Reed can feel free to critique my setup as I picked his brain for this. I cut the outlet end of a cheap extension cord to stand in for the 30 amp power cord that will ultimately be there. Two 20 amp circuit breakers feed the two outlets on the left, one each. An LED bulb lamp is plugged in to the outlet. The power source was plugged into a power strip with surge protection just in case but it all worked as planned. One minor detail is the bus is expecting a larger wire and I couldn’t get it to close on the extension cord so I had to screw that in one of the other screws on the bus. But it’s all one piece of metal so I figured the worst that could happen is the entire city would go dark. In the camper on breaker will supply the charger/converter and the other will supply two GFCI outlets in the cabin. Room for two more should I need it.
