Another hot one here at the Ranch. While it was still cool I decided on a project I have been wanting to do for awhile. I ran a cable of 10-3 wire out of the garage and put an all weather box on it with a 30amp RV socket in it. I wired it to a 30aqm breaker in my fuse box.

Checked it all with a meter, then I attached the 30 ft 30 amp extension I just bought to my fiver cord and the voltage protector, turned it all on and went in and saw I had AC voltage and turned the A/c on , The fan ran but no compressor. I read the voltage at an outlet and it read 109, this was during a peak use period, but I still thought the compressor would be running, IT ran last week off my generator no problem. Al I can think of is the run of 10-4 RV cord ( black) is about 30 feet on the trailer and I bought a 30 foot extension to reach the pad , so maybe it is to long a run, I will have to recheck everything on a cooler day.

Rigg’s went to the doggie park this morning and again he was the king of the water, He just loves swimming and swims until he is ready to drop, then when he gets home he sleeps the afternoon away.

Donna has the restaurant tonight, so me and Rigg’s will be batching it.

That’s about it for today, Be safe out there. Sam & Donna…..


  1. Dogs and kids get really tired out from swimming. Of course dogs never have any problem with taking a nap for any reason!

  2. Scooter doesn't go swimming but let me tell you, this chipmunk we have out here is about to do her in. She forgets she's 13 years old and runs around barking like an idiot. Comes in the house with her tongue hanging to the ground. Gets a drink of water and then falls over like she can't move another step. Don't we just love them. But I think Riggs wants you to take another vacation!!
