Smile Much Better

Put in a panel at the land so I don't have to lug it out there.

Gee whiz...with the price of copper you think someone will come by and hack that cable off....

Thats why charging stations in public places for electric cars is not popular.....

Not trying to worry you about it, but I would make it plugged ends....

Just saying....

I need to get brush cleared out and then I'll put in a 4*4 or even better 6*6 post and replace the UF running up the tree feeding a receptacle with THWN in sch. 80 PVC.

The more I think about it, it seems I wouldbe better off installing a generator inlet box to serve as the main connection.

Wait till you all see my mobile panel

I finally got around to getting the panel mounted on 4*4 posts. While I forgot to take a picture so far, I mpunted 1 side of the plywood on a 4*4*12 and the other side on a 4*4*10 with the unused part cut off. The 4*4 posts are concreted in 2' deep. On the 12' post I plan on putting some flood bulbs. I also need to drive 2 ground rods and trench over to the tree where I can install 2 outdoor switches for the receptacles that feed the string lights as well as a conduit for the mercury light. I also got some quad breakers to add more receptacles since I got a bigger generator.
