    Yeah, it is a 3 phase drop... They actually do this quite a bit around here, which is nice when it's only a single phase. Easy access. The only problem with these biguns is that I dont have a clamp big enough.

    LMAO, I would hate to do the eketch for that for that rv park. I have trailer parks in m area that are pretty rough. There are no gas or phone plats for them either.

    Sure enough did, crushed a few plastic mainline handholes too..
    VDoT always squeezes out of getting billed around here by saying "Well, its in our easement.."
    They are famous for cutting DWT wires when they grade/clean ditches..

    What I can't stand is that the utility companies are too stupid to give us reasonable hook up points. Some of the new U guards have a trap door so you can access the line but alot of them don't or they have so many fibers coming down that the trap door is useless because the are so tight you can't get your coupler around them.
