I I'm installing a circuit for a heater in a fire pump room and relocating a receptacle also. I noticed this morning a trailer in now anchored outside. It's a temp office for H&R block people. It's here every year. I return from a job interview and I run into 2 of our newer guys form our main electrical. One I already know and the other introduces himself. We talk and they ask if there is another guy in my shop with my name. I tell them no. Now the new guy gets quite and I wish them well and off I go inside.
It's a 100 amp 208/120 feed.

I just saw why they got quite and hurried up and finished.

New trailer temp power.

...and that cable is laying on the ground, never to be buried :no:
It is just going to lay across the snow and then under the snow for about 75' until after tax day.

Is that cable or a poly water pipe used as a conduit?
It's just an SOOW cord for temp power.

If it is temp you should put a receptacle in.
Not me,, I'll let the younger guys worry about doing it right.
I'm sure they think, "it was good enough" last year.
I give it a month before it gets yanked out by a plow in the lot.

Looks like they tried to tape it to the connector...but failed.:blink: I've really started to like these, cheaper than a regular CGB with an integral strain relief: https://www.platt.com/platt-electric-supply/Strain-Relief-Grips-Single-Weave/Leviton/L7507/product.aspx?zpid=387201
Thanks, I like it.
I doubt they would let me buy it as it's to modern, expensive, to easy to use,,, ect,ect.

Heck we can't even get in use GFCI WP covers stocked in our shop store. What a PITA.
Ok, rant over.
I'll gotta get back to TV, me and the Yorkees are watching Snoopy.
We are getting in the spirit of the season.
