You may need to have a transformer installed, if indeed you find you're at 450 feet distance. That's quite a run. Sometimes if you check with a electrical shop they may have some used transformers that might do the trick. However, most of these types of transformers are for much higher voltage. At least 220 or 440 and then they step back down to 220 or 115.

Hmmmm....where have I been the last few days (oh yeah ..camping ) I read the first post and was going to welcome BobShelton to IRV2 and also to congratulate him on his new 5er...but then things got right to the "meat" of his post! Dang... "drop voltage charts"... run charts.. permanent wiring underground....and RonNBama didn't even use his Sawzall! )

Hmmm.. welcome anyways...Bob! I am sure you wil find that most everyone here (ME in this instance) will be able to provide you with whatever info you might need...(I am a good welcoming committee - but forget electrician! )
