What Are These Pedestals?
A Marine Power Pedestal is an electrical housing units equipped with a variety of power combinations, LED lights, water connections, TV/Cable connections etc. A custom built power pedestal has the unique advantage of being built exactly to a client’s needs and specifications. These units are often made to withstand weathering, rust, and corrosion. They also can come specially equipped with features such as high-speed internet connections. Popular models are equipped with lockable weatherproof doors, as well as a 360 degree light assembly. Power Pedestals provide customers with the ease of getting cords in and out, being able to access breakers, as well as a lighting source.
Three Reasons Why You Need A Power Pedestal Made By Dockside
- They are easy to use
- When using a Power Pedestal, there are a few tips to keep in mind. The Marine Power Pedestal allows you to run an AC cord from the boat to connect to a power source. Many marinas will have a connection rated at 30A with two female receptacles, along with some sort of hinged lid to protect them. There will also be a circuit breaker which you will need to turn on when you are ready to use the power and should always turn off before unplugging your cord. You should always run your shore power cord in such a way as to allow free movement. A tight cord puts undue tension on your connection at either end, which can easily lead to overheating.
- Another advantage is that our pedestals are easy to repair. We created our models to be easy to get into. Our pedestals can be fully opened up and accessible without unscrewing six screws. The ability to repair items easily and consistently means that your pedestals can easily last 10-12 years.
- They Are Safe
