    We have friends currently building a VERY basic 70X120 arena. They are going to be close to 120K without lighting, plumbing, electrical, concrete or footing.

    Would you buy a car that drove off when you opened the door?

    A standard breaker is there to protect the wiring from overload, and may or may not trip if wires get chewed or broken.

    You can buy GFI, and ARC fault breakers, but they are very expensive.

    You can say that again!


    Seriously, what does it cost to board a dog for a day? Multiply that by 30 and I think we quickly see horse boarding is insanely cheap. Most kennels don't do a fraction...

    Correct, a 12 gauge extension cord will be as heavy or heavier than the wires in your wall.

    OP, make sure the outlet you plan on using has a GFI on it and is properly grounded. One of these is...
