    A for effort, and well executed

    Just buy a timer or pull out disconnect, this looks too complicated and much harder than it needs to be.

    no, they'd have a green backing for 30 amp. those are 20 amp switches.

    Reminds me of the time I ran into one that they ran a new feed off a separate meter outside with disconnect outside and didn't feel the need to mark the panel or take out old breaker.

    At least they labeled it with sense. Also they understand the concept of "2 pole". Other than that, FAIL!

    I lived on a remote farm for a few years that had all sorts of stuff laying around. looks like something I would have done to avoid a 2 hour trip to town.
