We unwired everything but the washer and dryer and the dryer worked just fine, heated up well.
Nothing had changed as far as what we have plugged in. Washer, dryer, two freezers and a refrigerator. We have a, I think it's called a trickle charger? for our garbage truck that's always plugged in. And for the last month or so Honey's been plugging his diesel truck in at night cause he's been having issues with starting.
The main box goes to a smaller box in the garage. Myself, I think something's wrong with this box. There are two breakers in it, and each only get good power to one side. The other sides have barely enough power to move the needle on the whatchamacallit that tells you how much juice you have. So he wired everything to the "good" sides of the breakers. He replaced at least one of the breakers, maybe both I can't remember.
Honey's thought is it's the wire that goes to the barn causing the issues. We've had our first good rain and he thinks something may have gotten wet. That's what we'll be investigating first tomorrow.
I just don't understand why the main breaker outside is tripping off, not the smaller breakers in the garage. Even when we only have one breaker inside running, it still trips the outside breaker. Not sure if that makes sense?
I have no idea what size wire, sorry. My main job is to hold the flashlight and make a big fuss over him when he finally gets it fixed. Those things I can do!
