Total breakers 10, amps 37 amps ( each outlet on own breaker)


"( each outlet on own breaker)" way to go you'll be so glad you did that down the road. Now if you put in enough outlets even for future use you did a great job.

DoB if I add more outlets now do I need to get a 125 amp box or try to find more circuits on a 100 amp panel ( before I install this one and have to take it out)? I would like 4 more

Not a problem with the pictures, I just need to find the plug I need, a door that fits on the bottom half of the would be drivers side door for gene venting/access, and find the plug I need to run to my panel from some store around here...I don't want to cut the hole to soon not having what I need to cover it. So hopefully I can get this panel thing figured out so I can at least get it mounted and wired up

I have another question, ok so the PVC that is sold is really cheap a T is like $1.06 home depot has a smaller version it doesnt say "PVC" on it, but "plastic" I like it because it is thinner and less bulky than the standard PVC piping cost more tho T is 3.17 each. Anyone ever used or seen what I'm talking about here?????

It depends on how many breakers your box will hold? Is it full or do you have room for more? Most people will double up on what they consider small usage runs, like several florescent lights can be on a single breaker because they don't draw a lot of amps. And if you do that you'll free up a breaker. But that said if you do that and you have a problem later (and the breaker trips) you'll lose power to anything on that circuit. That's why I think it's a good idea to have a circuit and breaker for each item or run that you have. Any decent electrician can ID what your bigger draws (amps) will be and they need to be on a single breaker. But again you can double up smaller usage items. Don't do it (double up) with pumps, refrigeration equipment, appliances that use electric for heat, like steam tables, microwaves, even a really good blender will pull high amperage when it is first turned on. But very low load items like a cash register, radio, florescent lights, and small signs, you may double up if you have too. Add up the amps those pieces of equipment draw and don't exceed the breaker limit. If you have the room, money and want to, sure get a bigger box with more breakers, but you don't really have to do that. If and when a breaker trips I like to be able to look on the inside door of my breaker box and know the number 14 is my cash register. And number 21 is my fresh water pump. And if I have a problem I'm only going to lose power to one item not the entire right side of my kitchen. But there are others here on RF that are much better suited at this part of your build than I am, so I hope they will give you a hand.

Hello all I have gotten a lot of things done over the last couple months and still have a ways to go I am in the process of getting my branding done and I need a lot of honest opinions here on this, please let me know what you think ( the green on the truck will be painted) I found someone to paint almost the whole truck for 400.00 except for the purple cheetah print on the front and logo which will be vinyl wrap for 6.00 a sq. foot:

Wow! Very unique, and I'd think memorable. Is there a story behind the Purple Cheetah name? If so I don't remember. This truck will not be missed parked or driving down the street. Very Cool.

Thanks big poppa!!! I knew I could count on you.......yes there is, my style of cooking is sort of exotic and on the wild side (traditional cafe/street food items with wild twist to them) and I love the color purple so why not marry the 2....I still have to have the facebook, twitter, and website lines added.

It looks great!

The green color reminds me of the former Krave in Jersey City. Every time there was something written about Krave a picture of the truck would always be in the picture. You could see it from 5 blocks away...

It's only former because they did so well they have a restaurant.

Good luck!!
