That's very similar to what my neighbor loaned us. I will be buying one when we get back home.

If anyone is has a need , I have 2 portable steps I have from our old motorhome , one has folding legs and the other is aluminum , nice looking spot over looking the lake btw , noticed you don't have a surge protecter , with seeing that electric box and the way the outlets are installed I would be worried .

Youíre right about excellent facilities at a great rate. Since this is a Corps of Engineer park, with our senior pass we only pay $12 a night for full hookups. What a deal! By the way, the restrooms and showers at Gun Creek were extremely clean and well maintained.

The issue with the 50amp outlet being upside down was fixed by park maintenance the next day. I was waiting for the maintenance man to get shocked while he was working on the box.

We were at the campground for three days. The weather was chilly and extremely windy but that wind made for great campfires. We also had a couple of nice sunsets.

As a guy who piddles around with electricity on a daily basis, I always find it humorous when someone gets nervous around me when I am working on it. My wife was a nervous wreck holding the light for me as I put a cord on our new dryer. Pointing out that the cord in question was not currently (<-pun intended) plugged into any source of power did nothing to calm her down

I would have been much happier if the power to the pedestal would have been off.

We also have a spot or two where the tape is lifting. Same with our RV steps, though.

Some places install 110 receptacles up side down so that if it were pulled out a little and something metal hit the plug it would hit the ground and not the blades first. Or they could have been drunk, one of the two.

Not really commercial apps use the ground on top incase something pulls down on the plug then it somethings fall on it will not hit the hot and common. In fact my whole house is like that, I asked the electrician that up graded my whole system before we bought it, use to have wire and ball lines. Pulled all new wire and sockets, breaker and increased from a old fuse 50 amp panel (screw in fuse type) to a 200 amp. I don't know how old you are you might not remember that kinda of wiring....
