Ooo very nice! I love recessed squares, especially in fairly large installations.

I will have to stay late and get a pic of them running! Never seen them running before, but I have only been there during daylight hours, except once in the camping area, which is a totally separate space with fluorescent vaportights in the bathrooms. I guess the lights don't want to constantly smell farts.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

LOL. Yeah most camp bathrooms I've been in use vaportight fluorescents too. Probably because it's a bathroom (high humidity if there's no AC, which is the case with any camp bathroom I've been in). I've seen them with missing/cracked diffusers and the strip lights inside get all rusty and if it's magnetic rapid start, the lamps have starting issues.

Why do magnetic RS lights have starting issues in humidity?

I think it had to do with the low open circuit voltage (compared to preheat, instant start, or electronic ballasts). The make the OCV low on purpose to make the lamps stutter at start-up, allowing the heating circuit to heat the electrodes before the tubes fire up. If the OCV was too high, the tubes would instant-start and not get that little "preheating". But with the OCV too low, the lamps struggle to start.

Poor grounding causes the lamps to struggle to start as well, and I suspect high-humidity could cause interference with the grounded fixture body. If the fixture isn't grounded at all (old wiring) they don't like to start. When the tubes are dirty RS has starting issues too (the dirt on the tube disturbs the field between the grounded fixture body and the tube). I had the reason ground is needed for starting RS tubes explained to me in the past but I don't quite remember it. It's pretty technical IIRC but something at seemingly-insignificant as grounding affects them greatly.

RS tubes require grounding because when the tube is first turned on, there are 2 arcs, one on each end. they arc to the grounded reflector and as the filaments heat up, the arc gets further up the tube until the filaments are fully hot and the 2 arcs meet. This is also why they flicker dimly and slowly ramp up.

Those look good there.
If they were MV, that'd look really cool.

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

I don't know if they're incandescent, CFL, or HID because I have never seen them turned on.

Giving their close spacing, I'm thinking these are incandescent (or were originally, at one time). They could have CFLs or LEDs in them by now though.

My high school has these things closely spaced mounted with 100w mercury lamps.

Could you get a picture if you can? They could be 75w since I know some manufacturers offered that as an option.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

When I see one of these with a CFL or LED, I get that "something's missing" feeling as with electronic T12s. They were meant to have incandescents and I might be camping in the camping area at night. Might try to stay by the boathouse these light to get a pic.

I've seen plenty of MH and MV ones spaced close like this too but given the fact that this is a campground, HID seems excessive in this case. It's not a drive-thru canopy at McDonald's or a bank. Would be way cool to see these in 50 or 75W MV though.

I hope they still are incandescent, not CFL or LED.
