hi everyone i am a time served electrician and i have been asked to fit a consumer unit with 2 double sockets/ 1 internal light and 2 external lights
in a 12x6 box trailer
it will be supplied from a portable generator and supplied into the trailer via an apliance inlet
i have an issue that it may not be the same generator that supplies the trailer as its used for club events and it all depends what generator is there.I am intending fitting an insulated consumer unit with 30ma rcd main switch but im conserned about the earth issue
any ideas would be great​
