Indeed. I have enough responsibility.

I’ve been looking at that exact set up, I can make that thing I just need to consult an electrician on it.... shockingly... because I will need to move breakers around in my box to make it work.
This is the one that I bought, and will work, but, it will only run the pump, which in theory is all I want, but, it would be nice to have a few lights on in the garage. I would even swap out the guts of the box to run 100 amps if I could I like the enclosure and the fact that it protects
also don't do something like show you understand how electricity and how to make your generator work with out $1000 bucks in extra (this thread a couple years ago). When you back up you knowledge with facts they say unsafe, when you can prove it is no more unsafe than any other method if you know what you are doing they get pissy.
I know suicide plugs are unsafe, I am willing to accept that, but installing a 100amp 3 way switch? No that’s bullshit. I want to shut off the power from the street, then run the house as I see fit.... buy “oh you can’t do that” like I’m some kind of retard
This is what is waiting for me at the supply house...
14 kW Generator
14RESAL with Automatic Transfer Switch Single Phase, Natural Gas|LPG
That should do it
If they ever run gas through my neighborhood, I'd get a standby NG generator. I think it is coming in the next few years. It's only about 3/4 of a mile from my house and they are expanding the service area down here.
I'm waiting for the 1.21 gW model
Ya things I'll never get here are NG and FiOS... though Cumcast says they have fiber on the poles they still run cable into the houses.
Four hundred billion dollars paid for rural internet and no one is hooked up.
Well they were going to put it in... then Verizon sold their telephony business in Maine like 5 years ago. I guess they didn't want to put the fiber in.
On a side note there are a few towns that have free WiFi (in the downtown areas) usually the ones that are a little down and out like Biddeford.
Towns should do internet co-ops. Build fiber systems and fuck the big bully cable companies.
Ya my cable bill just went up another $30 as I am at tier 2 of the promo price... and next year it goes up another $50. So eventually be paying like $200 a month for 90% of shit I don't watch. Like I do speak Spanish and French but I really don't need programming done it... or the queer channels etc...
So once I get done upstairs gonna try Sling TV and an antenna... again why can't you get a la carte programming. It's not like they have to send a dude up a pole to put in filters to block certain channels...
Ideally, you should look for the fattest pipe and ditch the TV/phone service. Between Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, etc... you should be covered for videos/entertainment.
Ya I have Amazon and Netflix... and with Sling I'm all set... has the 10 or so stations I watch a lot. And I will have the antenna for broadcast tv. Gonna get their "cable box" as I don't see my dad using a tablet to change the channel to watch Law and Order when my parents visit.
Change frightens the old folks. Especially, technology.
Well considering he is an electrical engineer as well... my mother is not that bad she finally got a smart phone after me bitching at her to get rid of her slider phone from like 10 years ago. And I think she got my dad a basic flip phone.
My mom has an iPad and my dad has a cell phone, he just won't take it with him.
Oh he will take it with him but not turn it on of course... Oh mumsie has an Ipad as well and two trips ago she thought it would be a good idea to monitor their progress by looking at Google Maps in real time and not say downloading the map first... she got a data bill of like almost $500... it was reduced to $200 but still silly.
I know a shocking number of people that have flip phones
I think they get better reception for whatever reason... like I have to make calls via WiFi cuz I get like 1 bar if I am lucky.
Yep... just checked my brand new Galaxy S9... 1 bar. Wish I had kept one of my old Razr's...
