Pretty sad when you stop to think that for lack of a little knowledge and a $20 or so tester, a boy's life could have been saved.
The simple testers that check for mis-wired electrical are fairly inexpensive even for someone as frugal (or cheap :lol) as I am. I am so happy that Mike Sokol continues to post on this forum. I believe that this thread, so full of his great information, has prevented potential heartache simply by educating those of us who either know nothing about mobile electrical wiring to those of us who are a bit fuzzy on some of the finer points of mobile electric. Not to mention how great he has been about answering all our questions. I think this is one of the most important threads on the forum (even if I did start it! Excuse me while I pat myself on the back
). I have read far too many posts on various RV sites where they mention getting a "little tingle" in damp weather. It scares me. I have often wondered about the folks who have died from a hot skinned RV. How long did they have "just a little tingle" before they got a shock big enough to kill them? I once heard that it really doesn't take that big of a jolt to disrupt the rhythm and stop a human heart.
In case I haven't remembered to do it before... THANK YOU MIKE SOKOL!!!
And THANK YOU fellow skoolies for reading, learning and putting what you have learned into practice. We are all carrying precious, irreplaceable cargo in our buses, our loved ones.
