Power (240 volt that is)
« on: April 13, 2011, 01:23:30 PM »
I'm really really interested in knowing if there will be electricity available somewhere on site, in particular, 240. Mark was a savior last year, but I don't know if the same arrangement will possible this year. What would be perfect is 240 volts at 30 amps. If there is 240, what style outlet is it? If not, does anyone have a generator that puts out really clean 240?

Thanks,

Dave Cover, all charged up and ready to roll

If it's a one time only thing, why not check at your local rental type places, to get one for the weekend?  I'm on the other coast or you could plug into mine if I were there.

The only problem with generators is I risk frying my charger, and that's about $3000 to replace. Inverter type generators are fine, but harder to come by. Nice, clean, ordinary, everyday American (or Canadian) juice from an outlet is all I really need.
