370733My free telephone pole lead fell through so I have reverted to cutting trees from our
property. Gonna skin them and cover the underground part in roofing tar as a barrier.

369385I don't remember which ones I used. I drew them out in paper based on the pj diagrams and
have discarded them since. As you can see from the front of my panel, I do not have a main

Sorry, I should also mention that the pids for each circuit are powered by that circuit. So
when the 120v circuit is plugged in, the pid controlling the rims element is powered and the
same for the 24...

that hop. I.e. If the hop is ranged 8-12%, then I used 10%. Honestly, you can't tell if you're
