Unfortunatly this home is a rental, with the landlord out living it up out on the coast... He was a MAJOR tightwad and only allowed the recept to be changed (to a GFI due to lack of a ground)But I did try to drive home just how bad things were here
They've been using small room heaters since he hasn't fixed their wall furnace!
(it's gotten down to the 30°F's here at times!)
The outlet was in her sons room behind a nightstand. I found an extension cord with a nice chunk blown out of the prongs on the other side of the room, but the outlet appears to have been broken for some time...
The panel is only about 1½' from the shower area, it could be reached from the shower (in case the lights go out while you're shampooing) It's partially buried in the corner, so getting the cover off took some work.. It's a Zinsco with the old screw terminal on both ends.. I have a pic of the inside I'll try to get posted here.. and yes... it is the service equiptment, a lone meter is the only thing between this and the feeders (#10's!) tied to the utility!
The tenant would've LOVED to get all these things fixed, but it wasn't her decision
