I hooked the tester up and it says hot ground reverse. What could be the problem? It is a 1993 holiday rambler 5th wheel what can it be
You do know your RV operates on 110 volt AC and not 220 volts, right? A friend wired the receptacle backwards while installing an RV hook-up on his property and ruined his refrigerator. it worked for a while (don't see how) but eventually caused problems.
Make sure the ground is connected to the correct leg in the receptacle if this has been recently added. You should only be using one leg of the 220 volt breaker in the main box to supply the required 110 volts to the pigtail! The pigtail has 2 grounds and 1 hot wire.
If the receptacle is connected to both legs of the 220 breaker you were sending 220 volts to everything in the RV! Hope this helps!
Hey Billy avoid electrical things altogether, I commented on your last question and this one is similar. Get a schematic from the dealer on the electrical wiring and plz plz don't try to repair it yourself or get the dealer to look at it as they are the real professionals. Good luck here too!
