    well ya know whats funny is.. my room is what the garage used to be (converted before we moved in).. therefore the breaker box is in my room, and strangely enough NONE are labeled for the garage.. so i just found the one that turned off the floor lamp in my room, and hit the one on top and on bottom just in case.. these pringles are good!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I got hit be 220 the other day. Found some wires hanging down under the trailer house. Just capped them off. Gotta call a electrision one of these days to figure out what they're for. I'm thinking old AC wires.

    OUCH!

    I cut into a live 220 line with my wire cutters once. Thought the power was turned off... LOL! Huge suprise! Big arc of light. Explosion in my face and now the wire cutters can be used for strippers... /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Those things can be a b!tch to hang. I've done quite a few and I use a piece of wire to hold it to the mount in the ceiling while I attach the wires and button them up. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
