Ligning strike and exterior outlet helping Troy

Post by Zelturo » Sat Jul 05, 2014 9:56 am

Hello Troy,

I believe that the issue on the rv after the lightning strike might just be the bathroom GFI plug that jumped. See in an RV all the outside outlet are plug in series and the first on is the GFI so all the outside plug are protected against ground fault and I beleive that is what you experienced yesterday. I might be wrong on trailer that are made to be sold in USA but I know for shure that the one in canada are wired that way and so is houses. That is the reason why in houses you see that the there usually is only one GFI even if there is multiple outlet.

Again I will tell you this I sent you my phone number in a private message at home and cell phone next time call me and I will be able to help you right there on the spot.
D'ont be shy its a plessure for me to listen to your video everyday so it will be a plessure for me to help

Hopes that helps

David

Thank you very much for the advice and ideas. Actually the bathroom plug was not tripped. The air conditioner circuit breaker was tripped and after resetting it, there is still no power. I think that breaker may be fried. I am not going to worry about it for now because all my money is going into the tiny house. I may get back to the RV later on though and finish fixing it up. Either sell it or use it as a guest house for visitors to the off grid homestead.
