My electrical was not correct (and i mean not wired correctly at the pole) Did anybody else have weird issues? Half your rig wouldn't run, some appliances not work? ETC. Or was it just my lucky weekend?:headshake:

Electrical issues, electrical issues only, that's way too personal. Had fun in the SSA race too, by the way, hard to miss that Buell out there!

Did you bring it to the attention of the track personnel?

At the track, as well as in an email to reynell. I was not impressed by the lack of communication options with the staff. Supervisors apparently disappear into the mists after hours. I was curious to see if I was the only one.

Our power was fine. Track management was ... less than impressive.

Best power I've ever had. Shall we discuss the cost?

Cost was fine....if it had worked! Guess it was just mine.

No problems with our power.

Me too. I would pay $80 for 3 days of power at every track we go to rather than burn the equivalent amount of diesel.

No doubt! The kicker is i didn't account for running my generator for 72 hrs, so i didnt have enough fuel, and at about .75 Gal/hr i burned up about $200 of their delicious $4/gal pump gas. Oh well, i'll know for next year!

My surge protector strip, connected to one of the 110 outlets, was showing it's 'connected' LED flashing/pulsating constantly, with the alternating current fluctuating heavily. I don't think it was putting out good juice at all!

I told y'all about how poorly the communication with Reynell in the alternate thread, prior to the departure for the weekend. Glad to know that there was no use in trying to reach her at the track, with what's been noted here...

Greg, I'm not sure when people say track management that they mean reynell. We've never had an issue getting in touch with her for any trip we've taken there. She also spent some time in our pit chatting with Brian for at least a good 20 minutes on either Saturday or Sunday, don't remember which day. I'm sorry you had a poor experience.

Unfortunately, I've called for reynell twice and sent an email detailing the electrical issue and as of today had not heard anything. Not tossing anybody under the bus, but I'd like an answer at least. :(

Things like that don't bother me much, life's too short. But I'll cry and carry on till the cows come home! Ha! See you guys at cresson.
