Could be - whatever the reason, that's one of the cleanest and well maintained power pedestals I have seen in awhile.

Probably Cheaper for them. Hope everyone brought extension cords and adapters.

I see that you are very energy efficient & only use 15 amps.

What a strange way to setup, can you imagine trying to figure this out when you come in late & it is dark. Hopefully you have a good neighbor.

Nope,that 15A is for the (Drink Mixer)! She was making drinks while I was taking Pics. of the Elect.Panel. Since we setup I have ask the C/G about the Panels and they said they have (Adaptors) to loan if they need them? Youroo!!

The scorched GFCI is the thing that impresses me.
Was there a pair of shoes in front of the pole from the guy who unplugged it and was launched right out of them?

Looks almost like it was arcing from the hot leg to the ground.

Everything tested OK before I pluged in.Yes someone just pulled the plug,no need to turn off the breaker first! I did see a guy laying beside the panel,but I though he was Drunk! The shoes are real nice! Youroo!!

I missed the scorched GFCI in the second photo - guess I will have to retract my "well maintained" part,but it's still cleaner than a lot of PP's I have seen.

Sure defeats the whole purpose of having peds like that. I am guessing the installer didn't know what he was doing, or how these are generally set up?
