so I'm breaking in a new 20 k Northernlights generator
and the manual says to load the generator
to 75% capacity to seat the piston rings properly. I can do this by turning the heat all the way up on my 5 ton air conditioning
unit, but it's already 95 degrees here in this godforsaken swamp. Today I had the air conditioner on full blast, but it only uses 8k so I had 5 electric
space heaters going at the same time and of course they had to be right under the cool air as the heaters turn themselves off at 90 degrees. My mechanic
came by to help set up my throttle and suggested I take my cracker box welder and drop the leads in the water
about 10 feet apart and slowly turn up the juice till I got the load I needed and that way I could have the aircon on without the heaters. Has anyone tried this? He says that's how they do it down here all the time, but I've noticed cajuns do a lot of strange things. You don't see a lot of old folks down here.
