Federal Pacific makes 3 panels with cams? Cos I'd expect nothing less at your house. :-D

The replacement service will have a 50 amp disconnect in the back yard.  I've got a perfect spot to park a generator if I need more.

.... meh... ok.................... Haha.

On my pile of Things To Do -- I am going to pull a separate 200A service for my garage. I installed a separate panel out there, and have wired some common twist locks already-- 50A range plug for an RV, 50A inside, couple of L14-30s, couple of L5-30s... I just need to pull from the pole down the property line and to the garage.

... since I am currently living out there (long story involving my parents living here, and now my sister and her two daughters ages 3 and 7) having better power then a random 20A circuit off the hot tub panel, and a 30A 1 RV circuit-converted to 14-50 - to gennie twist - hard wired into the panel out there to light up one or two circuits -- would sure be nice!

For the past 6 years I have had a generator in the back yard with a L14-30 connection to a hard wired inlet to a 100a transfer switch. When power went out, I would go to the back yard, start the genny (at least it was electric start) then go in and manually throw the transfer switch. I had a bunch of useful stuff on a sub panel from the switch.

Fast forward to this past week... Last weekend I dug trenches with a rented excavator for a propane line and for connecting up a larger auto start standby generator.

Of course, I needed to remove the old wiring.

Today we finished laying down the sand for the propane line and plumbing in all the PVC pipe to the generator location.

I am typing this in the dark on UPS power since a thunderstorm took out power half an hour ago :-)

Sigh....
