I was really fortunate that the shed is right at the service drop, so wire runs were minimal.

I might try my small compressor, it's a 115v, on my pickup lug nuts later just to see what happens. If I do I'll let you know how it did.

I just realized I may be recommending an elephant gun to someone that just wants to shoot rabbits and the occasional coyote
Ya but I don't want anything to be left of the Rabbit or Coyote. haha

My garage is at the furthest point away from my electric box. I installed a brand new box and seperated the meter after Katrina pulled the whole power mast off of the house. Never got it inspected and got lucky that it was still declared emergency so they did not look for my certificate of inspection. I can run one seperate after the fact without detection no problem but I'd have to get a different face inside or put a seperate panel inside as well. Might just run the wire and put a box in the garage.
