They needed to do some maintenance on their transformer on that leg (according to the campground electrician) but since I was only staying the night and I had an extension cord, I plugged into the site behind us which was on a different circuit and OK.
From that picture they need to work on more than the transformer! This picture should be posted in "Things you see in a campground" thread.

I believe it is posted in that thread, a few years ago.

Back to the OP issue, I didn't realize the PI could be so far off. I haven't measured the voltage separately before so this is another thing to add to my 'things to check into' list. It could explain why I keep getting low voltage cut offs though if I'm reading too low.

Great job on the voltage calibration! Am I correct in assuming this would also calibrate the amp reading as well?

Thanks. This calibration does not affect amperage. That measure of flow comes from the coil pick-up that the load wire passes through. I think that would be a fixed measure.
