Default This is good right?

What do you think? Customer called us out and wants to get this mess working again. Do you think it can be salvaged? Lol

I think my favorite picture is the ones of the overhead line to feed this mess. It was a little close to the ground so a rope was used to tie it to a tree limb.

What's it supposed to do?

I'd find out what his objective is and give him a quote to rip all that out and do a compliant installation.

Otherwise he's going to be asking you to make a bad situation worse and then it will be on you when bad things happen.

I am actually not going to touch this hodgepodge. He wants to get it "taken care of" and keep it around a couple hundred. I have already told him he would have a couple hundred in materials. So he wanted to go get the materials himself so he wouldn't have to pay the "ridiculous prices" he'd already been quoted. I politely declined and left immediately.

Put in a Midwest camper pedestal. I would do something like that or not touch it at all.
Either way he has to wait till after fireworks season. You did put me in the drawing right?

Hook truck up to camper, take off quickly, so that all that s*** is ripped loose, remove/dislodge and discard that s***, and park the trailer by an RV post.

At least change out the rusty cover on the duplex switch box, it makes the installation look unprofessional.

That's not hack work. You see, that's an Allied fiberglass box on that tree. Had it been a Carlon blue, then it would be a totally different story.

I try to help people out that don't have a lot of money and can't afford the necessary work, but it is usually just the bare minimum. If all he could afford was a couple hundred, and this was a true need, I might use as much of his existing stuff there as possible and make it work.

Now, it's the guys with the 4 car garage, swimming pool, mother-in-law suite, 2 jet skis and the 40 acres that really piss me off when they "can't afford" it.
