Hope the link works.


My buddy had his laptop die from this. And that was maybe 40 yards away.

And, I cross my fingers that my rental car starts when parked under 500kV air lines.

Greetings,
Mr. OD. Sounds like you're going to have to do a conversion and get Mr. dd to set it up for you.





Edit: Mr. dd. Used to work with a group doing EMP research. That's all I'm allowed to tell you.

I know I overload the breakers and they trip. That is why they are there. It sure would be nice to have and amp meter in the galley.

The breakers closest to the shore power plugs, onboard, were changed. All the shore power breakers on the board were changed. I changed them because they were 10 years old and figured the springs might be getting tired.

This boat would be two steps closer to perfection if it were 50amp boat and had a bigger hanging closet. LOL Given a choice, i'd opt for the bigger closet. SMILE

I too was nuked trained... main propulsion.
I think I had a core melt down because I am now dumber than a rock and I dont care. No longer am I worried about travel restrictions. On a good day, I remember to put clothes on, tie my shoes, put my teeth in and zip up my fly. Anything beyond that, not necessary. LOL

DD, we both know, if you have ever signed the paperwork for a security clearance, your security clearance may expire but, the paperwork lives on forever. At the drop of a hat they can bring your clearance up to date just before they throw you in prison. SMIRK

+1000 I try to remember to touch the cable every day just to monitor. Had an external plug go bad but I happened to be onboard when it started to overheat. It left a lsdting impression on my little brain.

Wish I had a temp alarm on it.
