Just bought a surge protector from Progressive. I had a question about it, emailed their contact and received a reply from the president same day. I am impressed.
While researching the surge protector I saw this Cheater Box
Great idea but how hard would it be to make one? I have a couple of 30amp extensions I no longer need so they could be butchered for male plugs and cord. Also have the adapter for 30 to 15/20A. An electric box and a 50A outlet would be all I need, right?
To wire it would it go like this? L1 and L2 would be the hot side from each 30A plug. Then tie the grounds together on the ground post and same for neutrals on the neutral post. Seems like for the price there must be more to it than that.
I also see in the link above
Will not operate on a GFCI circuit
I don't recall ever seeing a 20A CG pedestal without GFCI protection so how does that work?
