  1. 21ft with out the star and 12ft diameter at the base
  2. The PVC will also work if you have a ridge vent on your house, It works just fine with mine. Just an FYI
  3. Originally I was going to clip the mini's on the steel rod, then I realized what a PITA it would be. So I just zip-tie the lights to the steel rod. It doesn't add any strength.
  4. I use 1/2" pvc to outline my roof. I have a "How To" on my website here: http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/roof-outline-lights.html
  5. Thanks for the info, I think I will go with HLE being they are a Michigan Business and I like to help out a local business when I can. Besides their prices are cheaper and have free shipping with a $1k+ order.
  6. Don, So how did your apples to apples comparison turn out. I plan on making a big investment in LED's for the 2013 show and I am debating between CDI and HLE. Thanks
  7. Matt, First...I have 10 - 20A GFCI on a 100amp Sub-Panel For your case... do you want to be able to draw 15amp from all 4 of your GFCI's. If so this is what you will need to do: Run a 14-3 gage wire (White color plastic cover with 4 wires inside, Black, Red, White, Bare Copper) note: [only if this is in the wall, if not use seperate wires in PVC conduit do not run Romex wire in PVC] from your box on the porch (sub-panel) to a box housing 2 - 15A GFCI's. In your sub-panel you will need two twin 15A breakers that hook up to each one of your 2 - Outlet boxes. Now for wiring it click on this link for my "How to" on this: http://www.brownchri...lectrical.html You will also need to run a 10-10-10-8 wire (copper) 8-8-8-10 (aluminum) from your main breaker box to your sub-panel on your porch. This is also explained in the "How to". Feel free to PM me if you have more questions about this and I hope this helps you out. Jeremy Brown
  8. True! Super Strings is what I meant, however I guess when you think about it is a Bundle, Damn now its getting confusing !
  9. The past two years I have outlined my roof with PVC that has 1/4" steel rod mounted to it with my Super Bundles (R,G,W) lights zip-tied to the 1/4" rod. Here is a link to my "How To" on this. Hope this helps. http://www.brownchri...ine-lights.html Here is one of the photos in the "How To":
  10. Matt, I did a "how to" for a subpanel. I am not a professional or licensed electrician but I do have lots of experience. If you have additional questions please feel free to pm me. http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/electrical.html

CKSedg wrote: others have tried this with not much luck...just remember, as you rotate the hoop, the strings will become shorter and the hoop will raise up your mast...may be very difficult to figure out the correct length that you will need for the light strings. If it is only going to be 12' high, I would attach the strings to the top and "walk" them around your tree... What about a 20+ foot tree? How do you walk them around without a terrible tangled mess? It does get into a very tangled mess when there is a wind and it took me about 4hr to sort and "walk" around 32 strands of lights. For those who are interested I did a How To on my website on the Spiral-Mega Tree I did for 2011. I use a JUMP - Jack Up Mega Pole for my Mega Tree. - Quick Video Here: - Link to the How To: http://www.brownchristmaslightshow.com/mega-tree.html Hope this helps
  12. I did a 1 3/4 times around using 150ct minis on a 20' tall Mega Tree. I have 2 strands per channel on 16ch. Here is a short video of the spiral. Hope this helps, Jeremy B.
  13. I added the spiral to this years Mega Tree and I used 16ch with 32 strands (2 per ch) and love the effect and fullness of the tree. Here is a video of this years display with the Spiral-Mega Tree. Hope this helps. BTW the Mega is 20 foot tall and I used 150ct mini-lights from Target to do the spiral.

I have different channels come on at their own free will and they will stay on until that channel comes on in the sequence and then its back to normal. I have run the verifier and plan to do the reset tonight. Jeremy Brown
