  1. I have 13,000 lights on mine and use vampire plugs spt2, just keep plugs off ground and keep water from running down cord and into the plugs ( low point not the plugs). I don't use tape or dielectric grease on my plugs.
  2. Little late also, I only do the front 180 degrees of my 25' pole, due to the layout of my display. I use four sets of strings for each of the eight segments.

  8. It's getting late at night and don't want to call, I was informed by me lady boss, this weekend is a no go for welding up your item. Any day in the week or next weekend should work,  Let me know whats best.  I will try to give you a call Sat, or Sunday to try to figure something out.
