So, how many Christmas lights can I plug into that one receptacle I have on my lanai? Before I get into the meat of this article I have to tell you, I had written out this really long article with formula’s, graphs and talked about how my old math teacher would be turning over in her grave, blah, blah blah . . . As usual, I gave the article to Carol, our office manager, to read and she did something she hadn’t done in the 10+ years that I have been writing articles. She asked my brother Todd to read it as well. It turns out that what I had written was even more unreadable than ever before. So, Todd took out a highlighter to mark what should be removed from the article. He began highlighting the page, he got half way down with only a couple of words left that weren’t neon yellow and threw it on my desk stating, “It’s hopeless.”
So, here I sit, rewriting the article. Now to the meat of the article, you can only put (3) 100’ strands of lights on each 15 amp plug – that’s it. Note: most of your receptacles are a minimum of 15 amps. If you want to know any more than that let me know, I might be able to dig out that highlighted article.
Thanks as always,
