During the power outage yesterday, we had lights dimming repeatedly. Sure I understand that if you throw a new load on the generator, you might see a drop and the lights dim, but there was nothing going on. I even turned the fridge off to see if it was kicking in but that did not change anything. The only thing on was to big screen plasma TV. When I paused the show, the dimming was reduced (not eliminated). I really can't understand that the TV might have such a variable power draw that the generator has a had time following the load. We have a pump in the septic tank, but it is only supposed to come on when the water level is high, then shut off when it gets to the low water setting. It certainly would not be going on and off multiple times per minute. Really, could this be the TV?
