RV receptacle

Post by Guest on Wed 6 Apr 2016 - 17:14

I'm adding some 50 amp RV receptacles to service food trucks. Do these need to be GFCI protected? My gut tells me they do, but Ive looked all in the code book in 551 and Im not seeing where it says they need to be.

What would you do?

Never installed one that was GFI protected, but I haven't done any food trucks either. Commercial kitchens need all 120v 15/20A receptacles gfi protected, so I don't see why the whole rig would need a gfi.

They don't have to be, but I use one of the temp service things from Midwest. Comes with a 250GFCI and A 120GFCI. less than $200. easy peasy.

these are going to be installed in a parking lot of a garden center so when they have events the food trucks will have somewhere to plug in to. They will be installed less than 5' from the meter/panel.

Coming straight out of the panel with carflex and installing the rv receptacle on unistrut.

Yea that is a good option. The carflex is a little scetchy.

I'd tend to pipe it. Carflex is great for air conditioners, short whips to generators, and stuff like that, but I'm not a fan in that instance. 100% personal preference though. That stuff can be hard to make it not look like shit.

I would generally pipe it too but in this instance there going to be about 6 - 8" of visible carflex below the tv receps and maybe 18" of visible carflex below the panel. This is all inside of of a median of of a parking lot and the panel has has a lattice screen built around it. So I don't see the point when 95% of it will be hidden from view.

This is what I was dealing with and the reason I wasn't worried about using carflex over pvc. There was nothing that could make it look worse.

I guess I forgot to get a picture of the finished product. Oh well.

Someone please tell me where dead fronts and cover screws go? I have seen a million panels missing screws and hundreds of dead fronts just gone. It's as if someone just says "Shit! Where did I sit that big sheet metal doohickey that covers the breakers? Fuck it."

The dead front was there. I had just removed it so we could add the new circuits. But the screws were missing. There were 2 screws holding the dead front on and neither of those were the right ones.

The cover also had broken hinges and the cover is held on with a bungie cord.
The only saving grace is the lattice screening that covers up the entire mess.
