Thunderstorm skirting the ranch last week. No rain, but also no lightning caused fires!

We spent a long weekend at the ranch. It was time to move to another space, so we moved one space down the hill. We went riding down to the creek, had margaritas, BBQ'd a tri-tip and enjoyed some great spring weather.

Last weekend I turned on the roof A/C before we headed out for an ATV ride. When we got back the power was off. The breaker at the pedestal blew. After resetting it and turning the A/C back on, I could smell something electrical burning. I quickly checked inside and out and discovered it was the receptacle at the pedestal. The pedestal was too hot to touch and it was smoking.

Our infrastructure at the ranch is over 40 years old. We only have 30 amp service at the RV spaces. Our maintenance crew often replace the breakers and receptacles at the pedestals. This happened on Sunday after hours, so I simply turned off the A/C and with a small amp draw all cooled down and worked OK until we left the next morning.

Electrical smoke is nothing to take lightly. I'm glad it was only the pedestal.

Seems like a lucky escape. There is a lot of current coming through those pedestals and it doesn't take much resistance to cause an over-heat.

My PROJECT AIRSTREAM blog

Hi All,

I've been working forever on building my Project Airstream blog. I finally got it far enough along to put it on line. I've shared many of the renovation projects and travels that I have done with "Dad's Toy".

Please feel free to visit and I hope you enjoy the experience! Come back often since I intend to periodically update the blog with new projects and travels!
