Hola Amigos! Hello! Just wanted to ask aquestion about grounding a TT ?? I was installing a spare tire mount and got a small shock. Not real good if your barefoot?My question is" what" is grouding the trailer? The negative or neutral wire at the source? It is OK I checked it with a curcuit tester , multimeter to the earth literally ,ground is reading 51 volts or abouthalf a curcuit of AC power? Where would you look first? Is the main question ?? Thanks..........Brad firstname.lastname@example.org
The problem is the shore power. It has the neutral and power wires are reversed and it's very likely at the receptacle. When the wires are reversed, the load (the trailer) becomes energised via the neutral back to ground at the power source, so when you touch the trailer and ground, you form a current path that will give you a shock. Note: Everything in the trailer will work fine because the equipment has the necessary voltage to work, even thought the polarity is reversed.
