Great picture; interesting.
It amazes me that the common thought by the majority of operators using a ETM is that they believe if they plug into a 20 amp (as an example) plug outlet, that they'll get 20 amps of power.
What they do not take into consideration is that that particular 20 amp outlet may not have 20 amps available! Sometimes, on that same leg or circuit, this power may borrowed by a refrigerator, etc... thus only allowing the balance of amps for that 20 amp outlet.
Thus, plugging into a 20 amp outlet may only supply 12-10-15 amps at best!
The key here is what you allutted to: "A designated 20 amp outlet"!
