    IIRC from "stray voltage" @ dairys, .32 volt is getting to the limits of what most of us can detect. Cows are about .5v but they usually have more points of contact than humans and they are wet.

    Looks pretty close, although the 250 amp CB is really stretching it. Not sure if you can go next size up in this case. Do you have overcurrent protection besides the 100 amp fuse?

    She demonstrated for us how she locked up. My help then showed her how easy it was to open it with a screw driver if it was not set. We added a steel plate to the door to prevent that as well.

    Look at 547.

    Normally the arena will not fit the definition of (A) or (B). PP housekeeping may eventually lead to it, but IMO, that would take a long time.
