I wonder if there is a national or CG industry code (s) regarding the set up of these pedestals.

If there is, nobody is inspecting.

Probably not - something else that bugs me about CG's facilities such as PP's is where the water spigot is so close to the ground you have to strain to hook up your hose - we found some spigots to be very easy to connect to because they were high enough you can connect to them standing up - others were not.

After thinking about it and looking more; they would have had to buy them in this configuration. The ones that are set up for 2 30's do not have extra knock outs for breakers if they wanted to wire them for 50's. And the ones set up with 2 50's would have had more knockouts for the breakers. Unless I just cant see all the knockouts.

Or one of those breakers in the 30 amp setup is a 240 breaker and only using one leg???? It looks like one or two of them are pretty wide.

I also don't like when the sewer is close to the water spigot.

When sewer and water connections are close together, it does make it easier to recycle.

How about below ground level? The water hookup at Ramblin' Pines in Woodbine, MD is the strangest thing I've experienced in my limited RV'ing - it's literally in a 18" round tube sunk down into the ground that you have to move a concrete cover to get access to it.


Water hookup - from side/outside
- this sticks UP out of the ground a good 8" or so


Water hookup/reaching down - you ultimately were reaching 3"-4" below ground level to hook up



Look #2 of the water hookup/looking inside

That's the most extreme example of what I'm talking about - perhaps they do it like that to prevent water line freeze ups.

You might be surprised sometimes after removing the cover and finding other things besides the spigot down in the hole

Looks to me like a cheap way to avoid buying a more expensive handle type self draining (therefore freezeproof) spigot! Must be a real pleasure at night...I don't like spiders and snakes...
