    WIX oil filter troubles

    Howdy, In today's world.... I wonder if it's a real WIX filter, or a grey market import. NAPA is down the road from me. So I only have true experience with the NAPA 1374 and 1348. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/mep-802a-mep-803a-filters-and-parts.186068/

    Howdy, Go buy a longer length of awg6 nmb. You do have it in full conduit the whole way correct? Attach the longer length to the one in the conduit and pull it through. done.

    MEP-803A getting it to work,,,my first one!

    Howdy, I don't think you spoke with someone which knows what you are asking. The switch is service rated isolation switch. It really has nothing to do with Met-Ed Power. It is physically after the meter. So Met-Ed is out of it.

    MEP-804A suspected voltage regulation issues.

    Howdy, The MOV is not from the Manufacturers. It is not in any TM. The MOV came about by members here.

    Howdy, You could replace that service breaker panel with a EZ-Connect Transfer Switch. I don't see tons of info on it, but it would accomplish what you need. http://www.generlink.com/ez-connect.html 200 Amp service panel transfer switch with service disconnect.

    Howdy, For your knowledge. US Standard electrical 1 Phase 120/240 It depends on the year, location, and who is talking. 110v is the same as 115v, which is the same as 120v, which is the same as 125v A standard duplex outlet is 120v outlet Larger items use both sides, and that is how you have...

    MEP-803a IEC Receptacle - Stupid or GTG?

    Howdy, For heavy duty wiring cord... You will want to go with W type cord. 6-4C 6 Gauge Multi-Conductor Type W Portable Power Cable is good for 87 amps.

    MEP-803A getting it to work,,,my first one!

    Howdy, You have the correct fuse. With a meter handy, try it all out. note= your temp gauge looks fine. That's where it should be when running. It will never match a infrared spot temp.

    Howdy, It's funny that you posted this. I was talking about the series 15 mini cam loks in the forum. The ones on this unit are the larger series 16 cam loks.

    Grid Protection Device

    Howdy, They are for setting up a micro-grid at base camp. Usually running say 2-6 Mep-1060 or MEP-1070 AMMPS unit in parallel. They can assist in starting or turning off more generators when needed for power demand. Anytime you have that much power flowing, you want to make sure all are safe...

    MEP-803a IEC Receptacle - Stupid or GTG?

    Howdy, Always think of electrical connections as a hose flowing water. Where is the power coming from and where is it going. Generator making power, wires lug connected, the end of the wire would be the female connector, the contact is guarded from you touching it. The item which is receiving...

    MEP-803a IEC Receptacle - Stupid or GTG?

    Howdy, The other point to think about. $$$$ The world of pin & sleeve connectors are not cheap. There are tons of variations. Sorted by phase, amperage, country etc.. The 1 constant is that your need a 4 wire connection to whatever you do. "Hot-Hot-Neutral-Ground" and 3 phase gets another Hot...

    MEP-803a IEC Receptacle - Stupid or GTG?

    Howdy, Marinco series 15 cam loks are good to 150 amps. They are used throughout the world connecting electrical items. Or probably the larger series 16 cam loks. I believe it is now a requirement for most evacuation route gas stations to have these on there service panel for generator...
