  1. Thanks Craig. That makes sense. I was surprised that that there did not appear to be a preset way to pull this off. If I am given anymore ideas I will pass them your way as well.
  2. Question: I have all my musical sequences ready to go for this years Christmas Show and I have loaded them in the order I want them to play in the show editor. Here is my question. I have 6 songs in my show and I want the show to play every 30 minutes. When the show is not playing i have an animation sequence I want to play, but I do not want the animation sequence to run in the background during the show. How do I schedule the show to play ever 30 minutes, and when the show is not playing have my animation sequence run? Thank you in advance.
  3. Can you use SPT2 or SPT2 C9 connectors on the SPT3 wire? I have never seen SPT3 C9 connectors.
  4. Anyone know the best deals on SPT-2 wire? I checked all the usuals. Although creative displays has a coupon it is SPT-3 wire??? Is this a problem and will it be hard to work with since everything is SPT1 and 2? Besides them, I do not see any other coupons floating around anywhere. Shipping on this much wire to California is a killer as well.
  5. Does anyone know if there is a coupon for www.christmaslightshow.com? I need over 2000' of SPT2 wire and a ton of connectors and so on and am looking for any deal i can get on shipping and so on. Thanks!!
  6. Does anyone know if they sell SPT-1 male plugs with the female plug on its back to plug another male plug into it? I hope I am explaining it ok.
  7. [ATTACH=CONFIG]38141[/ATTACH]Here is what I did this year. I have a clay tile roof and did not want to drill any holes. I loaded a few lights in so you can see how it looks. Every light will sit perfect and lined up. I tested this system on Saturday. I am going to paint these when I am done so they are weather resistant. But to keep them on the roof, I bought small bungee cords and I hook one end on one side of the ridge tile, go over the wood assembly, and hook on the other side of the same ridge tile. It is really windy where I live and it does not look like these are going anywhere.
  8. Thank you everyone. From my research it appears that relays/contactors open up a world of options. Does anyone know of a good site that I can read up and educate myself on the topic so I can learn how to size everything and what is out there as options?
  9. ___________________________________ You are dead on. That is exactly what I want to do and what he told me to do. I just cant figure out what to buy?
  10. I am installing 2 each 20 amp breakers inside an exsisting panel. From there I want to go into a time switch and then from the time switch into 2 new recetacles. I spoke to an electrician today and he sent me the following diagram. I searched for relays and was overwelmed. Help. Why do I need a relay and what does it do?
  11. _______________________________ Hi Gary - I have spent a lot of time on your site for ideas... Thanks for your input. I agree with you, however, there are no visible pull boxes. My bet is the contractor laid the conduit, pulled the wire in somehow and then placed concrete and landscaped. It appears I am stuck with the 8 AWG that they have in as there are easily 7 bends and no pull boxes...I do like the idea of putting a 40 amp breaker in the main box to be safe. Any thoughts on my wire arrangement from the pool panel to the new receptacles?
  12. _______________________________________ I did the same research once I saw they pulled No. 8. Based on my research 50 amps should have been a No. 6 wire. Based on the fact that they pulled No. 8 wire I decided to pull no more then 40 amps off of the panel.
  13. I just moved into a new house and am going to need some more power for this years display. After doing some research yesterday I found that the previous owners installed a 50 amp breaker in the main panel and ran 8 gauge wire from the 50 amp breaker to the other side of the yard where they installed a sub panel for the pool. My thought is since the pool is not on at night I can rip some power off of that. Attached is the pocture of the pool panel. Yesterday I installed conduit from the pool panel into a time switch and from the time switch I ran conduit into 2ea 20 amp receptacles. N
