    I had the same problem with my friend that connected my first RPC. He did not believed RPC' s worked and took the control box to his boss as he figured the wiring was too light a guage. He also did not know difference between a Rotary and static phase converter. He has been an industrial electrician for at least 35 years. He was quite surprised when he checked line voltage when it was installed and all 3 legs were within 5 volts.
