I recently hooked up through my TPC 400 2-Lionel 180 powerhouses. My layout is not that big but I struggle to get more then 16 volts of power on the track. I realize that I now have 20 amps, but where is my voltage hiding. I am getting 17.6 out of the cord on both powerhouses. I would think that I should be getting closer to 17 on the track. Connections are good all around the track.... Puzzled ?
Any ideas here.... Oh one more thing I am using a hefty 14ga wire, as the instructions on the TPC 400 suggest. Thanks in advance.
