    One thing I found was called a cord protector. don't know about all of you, but I had a lot of cord junctions in my display and over the years I have tried a lot of things to stop gfi's from tripping. But here is one thing that I think made a big difference this year. I deployed about 18 of these in my cord junctions in the yard. https://www.menards.com/main/electrical/electrical-cords-cord-management/extension-cords/twist-and-seal-cord-protect-outdoor-extension-cord-protection-green/tscp-g-bl/p-1526970610173-c-6410.htm I put these on all my cords that had plugs close to the ground. There are different 2 sizes of the big ones. I used the bigger ones and was able to make 2 zip cord plug junctions in one protector. Here is the mini version https://www.menards.com/main/electrical/electrical-cords-cord-management/extension-cords/twist-and-seal-mini-holiday-light-cord-protection-green/tsm-g-bl/p-1526970610029-c-6410.htm Wayne
  2. Tonight is my last night. I will start tearing down tomorrow since I have the day off. Then continue to work on it after I get off work Thursday and Friday and into the weekend, like a few others have said weather permitting. Last week looking at the extended forecast, I thought I would have a good few days after Jan 1, but looks like rain and snow a couple of days are in the forecast now. Wayne
  3. I also have several strips fail with nodes out on them that were new last year. Wayne
  4. Since I changed 2 C7 bulbs out this afternoon, I wondered if they would work. I would get longer bulb life and maybe a little brighter. I thought it was doubtful but thought I would ask.
  5. Can anyone tell me on a LOR CTB-16D controller, will 1 channel control 1 C7 led bulb? I have several blow molds that use a C7 bulb in them and each one has it's own lor channel. I want to switch to led bulbs, but without ordering any, I don't have a way of knowing if they will work ok on this controller. The ones I am looking at say: Power Use: 0.58 Watts Can anyone confirm with this low of power use that they will work ok? Thanks Wayne
  6. Yaaa, Show is up and running. Even with all of my testing I see 2 floods that are not working. I guess tomorrow will be trouble shoot day. Hope everything is working for everyone if your starting up tonight or in the next few days. Wayne
  7. Thanks Guys I left lor poste create a new master folder and then went into the sequence folder it created and deleted everything in there and then moved all of my 2019 sequences into that folder. I also done the same with my audio folder. This worked pretty well as I do my sequencing on anther computer. Wayne
  8. The wind has subsided here in N.E. Indiana. I am showing 6 mph. Now I can put things back in the yard I took down Tuesday night and get ready for the show to run tonight. Wayne
  9. Every year I create a new folder with the current show sequences I want to use for the year. When I do the post.ex* to select the new folder I want lor to look at, It pulls in all of the older sequences and puts the current and last years sequences into the same folder. It also looks like it created a folder called sequences old and put all of last years sequences into that folder. How do I point to new folder without getting all of last years sequences also? Thanks Wayne
  10. Just looked at my Davis weather station, winds are 15-30 mph, I had a 48 mph gust about 11:00. So far everything still in place. The good thing for me is the wind is out of the West and my house is decorated on the East side. I live in the city, so I am sure it is probably stronger out in the county. Wayne
  11. How many of you are bracing for the high winds in the system moving thru the mid USA? We are suppose to get sustained 30-35 mph with gust to 60 mph tomorrow hear in Northeast Indiana and also 1 1/4" of rain tonight. I went out tonight and pulled some of my props back in and then went and got 40 foot of rebar and made a bunch of 3 foot to 4 foot stakes and staked down a bunch of the blow molds. Hopefully the stuff all stays put and I don't get any damage. Wayne
  12. I have been on vacation last week and I don't know why, but it just seems to be taking longer this year to get stuff done. But on the other hand I got everything put out and hooked up and ran network cables and powered up all 22 controllers about 5:00 this afternoon. Everything has a heart beat and is alive. I ran an all on sequence I have made to test everything and every thing looks ok at this point. I had a couple of blow molds that the bulbs came loose in between testing and setting up. I also noticed I forgot 2 hook 2 stars up and a run of strobe lights around my mini tree's. But I will work on these items in the morning and by tomorrow night I should be ready to go. Wayne
  13. James I feel for you. I spent the majority of yesterday hooking cords up on the house. Wayne
  14. Here in NE Indiana I got started last weekend with temps in the 40's Then the big chill hit and we got a couple of inches snow. Did not do much during the week. Got up yesterday and wanted to get all of my controllers put out. My yard looked a mess with leaves from the neighbors house. So, with some snow still in spots and wet leaves, I decided to mow the lawn with the mulching mower, ( neighbors probably thought I was crazy ) The lawn actually looked pretty good when I got done. All controllers out and working on house stuff today. Wayne
  15. I am down in the shop and was going to use the 9 volt battery and I happened to think I have a 12 volt trailer breakaway battery that would work well and is rechargeable. But I am showing a static voltage of 12 .9 volts on that battery. How finicky are the LOR 10 watt floods? Will the 12.9 volts hurt them? 1 of my cmd24 controllers shows 12.2 volts output. So, I am not sure if the 12.9 volts will hurt them or not. Thanks Wayne
