Christmas tree
« on: March 11, 2008, 09:10:32 AM »
The Silversides Christmas tree is two separate panels each with its own rheostat.  The right side suddenly quit working.  A single I.C. panel circuit breaker in maneuvering is on and we have 110 volts at the I.C. panel.  Would the two panels have separate fuses on the I.C. panel?  Charley Roesch, croesch@comcast.net

Yes I believe they do. I can't rember the circuit designator but I recall two fuses.
