    UPDATE to include devastating flash flood 30Jul2016.This time The Icehouse (my home) took a
    massive hit. The road washed away exposing my foundations to the base and 4' of sewage pounded

    Egads.I thought for sure that a surge protector would trip over anything above 15 amps. Last
    night we ran the kerosene heater in the basement, our brooder lamp under the basement sink that
    drains thro...

    I 100% agree - but don't have a 20 amp spare, and there's a blizzard between me and the
    hardware store.These 2 heat cables pull less than 5 amps each. I think the surge protector can
    handle the load, ...

    I love having so many pros at the ready!It's a single breaker occupying a single space in the
    box - is that what you mean by using one leg? Here's the deal, guys. I am working on an
    emergency set up, ...

    OK - the local hardware store got a shipment of heat cables this morning, and I bought some of
    the last remaining. I scored the last 2 utility heaters as well. I picked up the last kerosene
    jug as wel...

    I'm just SW of Baltimore, MD. The 20 amp circuit supports the clock on the stove and and 2
    outlets, I added an outlet for a total of 3. One of those outlets is behind the stove, totally
    inaccessible. ...

    Thanks for the super fast reply, kok. I have another circuit available but it's 30amp! It was
