    Up here in BC Canada there seems to be a shortage of a lot of things including breakers, panels, etc. All due to covid supposedly. Its rediculous!

    Yes it's not good timing. We're just trying to plug along in our slow time and dealing with equipment shortages and now this.

    Oh brands! I heard several being discussed and I assume these are regional / national. I know their checking the internet but I didn't write them down. Sorry

    Federal Pioneer is a nightmare to source at the moment, in BC anyway. Suppliers are telling me factory got shutdown and not starting up until March or so. Not sure how true it is, but two different wholesalers gave the same story. Was chasing 70amp 3 poles.

    FPs are stupid expensive at the best of times! Ended up changing out whole panel... was replacing a heap of RTUs, which required different breakers.

    Yep, I'm in the BC interior. I've been waiting over a month for some 14" B vent! Supplier can't guarantee when we'll see it. Thankfully customer has been cool about it, so far anyway.

    Totally different industry, but went to buy a new MTB last week, 15 month wait on delivery! Covid related production delays and increased demand.
