finally opened the 1600 amp GFCI pringle ... I suspect the pringle switches are set too sensitive.
The short circuit he described probably did cause a ground fault from hot to armor.
Yes, I would like for RH to explain why he thinks a GFCI is too sensitive to a ground fault.
Am I to believe that a ground fault anywhere in that part of the building will kill the whole section of the building?
The only solution I see is to use successively more sensitive GFCI protection throughout the branch.
