Good deal.

themoreweexplore,
Something to think about... When you plug and unplug at a campground's pedestal, would be to flip the breaker to OFF, plug into outlet, then flip the breaker to ON.
I've seen people that just plug straight in, and you'll see and hear an arc when the blades make contact with the outlet.
Surely, arcing electricity can't be a good thing. I developed the practice of turning off breaker, connect, then flip on with a lot of different outlets.

And if you looked at the blades on your rental unit's cord...I'd bet they were burnt.
Lots of plugging and unplugging going on, more so than your plugs at home. When's the last time you unplugged your dryer or welder?

Fantastic advice, thank you! I've been reading up on the electrical course thread and I'm learning a lot. Truth be told, I didn't even know they had breakers on the outlets there when i rented. Thanks again.

the examples I showed were caused by overloading 30 amp circuits or damaged campground receptacles... After seeing burn marks on my cord, I always just flipped the breaker... it's right there anyway

Perfect, thank you for pointing that out! I'll be sure not to make that mistake again.

Do you also test the voltages at the pedestal before plugging in?

We just got these two logos from our graphic designer. Which one do you prefer?

not enough differences in my opinion.... but, if I had to choose, I'd go with the one on the right because the waves at the bottom look less cluttered.

Not sure if the designer is trying to impose shadows on the peaks and waves, but I don't think they have enough significant impact.... it just looks like a silk screen error if it was going on a shirt. I don't think the shadow message would come across. Now, if it's an insider's symbolism... it might be different.
