T5 ballast
Hi all.

I think I lost my T5 ballast Friday night. My neighbor's house got hit by lightening and I had a few items get zapped ... NIC, answering machine and it appears my T5 ballast.

It is a CV MH/T5 retro kit. It is magnetic and runs 2 54watt bulbs. I am not sure which wires to test for voltage on the bulb side of the ballast. I know I am getting voltage up to the ballast. Is this a no brainer and is there a ballast that I can get locally(HD or Lowes) or do I need a specific T5 ballast. Not real familiar with these but I like them :)

Thanks for the tip Steve-S.

I will add that the ballast is electronic not magnetic. I goofed on that.
