    BigChessie BIG PIMPIN' "GIGELO"

    Well I now have the (10) ten halogens mounted, mixture of (4) 500 watt-(6) 225 watt ultras. I also found a deal on 300 watts so I have 15 of those and 8 500 watts for back ups if needed. I am staying with the big genny (around 5830 operating,7830 start-up). Here is my plan: Run (2) two 10 Gauge extension cords from the genny to the rear of the deck. Then plug in (2) two female pigtailed 15 amp GFI cords.One on each side of the boat. From there I just plug in the halos directly to the GFI cord. Has anyone tried this? I know some guys have used surge protectors to do the same thing with out trouble. I was thinking that having the GFI's would be a little better. Other thing I may do is wire 5 halos on each side together and then just run a single GFI on each side then to the genny. Just wondering what everyone else was doing. Thanks BC
