Meltfest 2010

I am organizing a little mini-rally the purpose of which is to do some destructive thermal testing on shore power connectors and maybe an air conditioner. During Meltfest 2010 we will run 15, 20, and 30 amp shore power connectors, adapters, and cable assemblies at and beyond their current ratings and record temperatures and any damage.

The purpose is to debunk some of the overly conservative myths of shore power wiring, demonstrate the importance of clean connections with good clamping pressure, and show how proper use of anticorrosive contact grease can reduce heating.

Date TBD but probably mid to late October. Place, the welding area in my shop. I have courtesy parking for 4 rigs with water, electric, and dump station on site, and there's a state park several miles away.

Post up or PM me if you would like to attend. The more witnesses the better. Also if you have a video camera and want to shoot the event and upload to youtube that would be great.

Finally, if you have equipment to donate for testing, especially an older working air conditioner (we'll run it on 90 volts for a week and see if it dies) or shore power components, PM me or post up.
