"Your Generator Arrived"
« on: October 16, 2020, 06:26:32 pm »

This showed up for a church festival we are doing tomorrow.

I guess I'll remove the California plug and tie into the lugs  :o  They don't look much better but should be OK

Yikes!  Hopefully that's an attendee's contribution to the event and not a paid rental.

I can hear it now, you question the condition of the receptacles and generator tech says something like "the last guy used them with no problem" or "we tested everything at the shop
before we brought it out"

What I can see of the breakers those are looking a little weathered as well.

Not confidence inspiring at all.  I wonder, how corroded are the parts we can't see?

What they won't say, is the "last guy" was 10 years ago....
I'd refuse it as unreliable. or UN-connectable.

No way I'd plug into that

Rent a generator, get the fireworks show package for free!

To quote the above, Yikes!
