OK, if Stubbie is back, shhhhhhh, don't tell him all that bad advice we gave you while he was gone.

He'll figure it out John as Cindy's gone (whoa-that rhymes). She took Joba's advice and hired an "electrician" that she met in the electrical department at Home Depot. You just can't trust that Stubbie!

Hi Cyndi

I looked at the thread early this morning for a few minutes. Then had tons of yard work to do. Anyway back from my fishing trip. We had high winds for 3 of the 4 days so only got in one full day where we could fish without getting blown off the lake after a few hours.. We caught lots of fish though the weather didn't cooperate as we thought. I may post a few pictures of some of the crappie.

I told you that the other guys here would take good care of you but I didn't think Joba Fett would show up. Anyway when the inspector finishes we can continue with the water heaters and those branch circuits that were soooooooo loooooong and see what we come up with.

I'll have to read back through the thread to see if you posted the size of water troughs your using.

Dang Jimmy, I was drinking coffee when I read that and almost drowned. That is funny.

Why would I hire a self-proclaimed master electrician from Home Depot when I can follow the directions of a self-proclaimed expert on just about everything like Jobe Fett??????

Joba- I don't need luck, I have real electrical experts that have offered great assistance and information here on this forum. I'm sure we will have success!! As for my girlfriend.....not sure what you are referring to. I am sure that Stubbie, Jrclen, Silk, Mr.500 and the rest of the guys don't consider themselves of the female gender. Maybe you are a little mixed up. Better get some help man.

Hey Guys- The inspector came today and now I can proceed with the project. The excavator is going to fill in the trenches tomorrow and then Thursday thru Sunday I will be doing what I can. Thanks for all your help and I am sure that I will have a zillion questions once I get going again. You guys have been great......and a special GREAT BIG thanks to Stubbie!!!!

I will try not to bug you guys till after I get the new wiring run through the conduit.

The inspector stated that I could keep the #12 wiring if I wanted to but #10 would be an improvement for the longer runs...like you said Stubbie. I will most likely change it to #10 just in case I need to run something else off of it. In fact I may run a third circuit and terminate it there for future use. We will most likely add another animal enclosure as we expand.

Talk to you all soon. Cyndi

P.S. I told the electrical inspector, Mike that this was a great site and forum for us newbies. He might check it out. I hope he does so that he can refer others to the site.

Help if it's not too late!!


Good Morning Guys!! I am pulling the #8 wire out this weekend and replacing with the #2 alum for the feed to the sub-panel.

Before I install the new sub-panel, I want to make sure that I replace all the necessary wire through the conduit runs.

I plan on replacing the #12 wire on the 390 foot run with #10 per Stubbies suggestion. My question is....do I replace the #12 wire that is on the shared neutral with the 390 foot wire as well?? This circuit is 170 feet from the sub-panel.

Also, by reading some of the other postings in the electrical section, I understand that I need to install a GFCI breaker (double pole..common trip) on these shared exterior circuits instead of a GFCI receptacle at each location. Is this correct??

I just want to make sure that I have a clear understanding on this aspect before I make some of the needed changes.

I have the same situation on the interior of the garage where two circuits share one neutral and I thought I could just put a GFCI outlet at the first receptacle of each circuit. If this is the case, does the same apply for the exterior outlets as well??

Thanks,, Cyndi

Hi All!!

It's been 5 months since I started this project and I want to thank all of you that helped me with the installation of the sub-panel and all the animal pasture lights and receptacles. Everything is working with the exception of one light fixture at one of the pastures. I can't seem to figure that one out no matter what I do.

Thanks again for all of your help. Cyndi
