Electrical Rv-electrical Question:
Dave, Just wanted to comment that you have an excellent site. Being a former licensed master electrician myself , and now disabled, I still get calls years after I retired. This will be a valuable resource I can point others to for help.
Thanks- Scott Duckworth.
Hi Scott, Thank You so much!
Your comment is especially encouraging, coming from a fellow Electrician. My family and I have been working on the site for over 2 years now, and we really have a long way to go. It's especially tough doing this while still running my own electrical business. I'm often up until the wee hours of the morning adding new content and improving what is already there along with answering a few questions. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and respected. I have a database of hundreds and hundreds of pictures that need to go up on the website, and prioritizing them is a real challenge, so any requests will definitely be taken into consideration
Great hearing from you, please stay in touch. Sincerely, Dave
From: Rev. Scott Duckworth One thing you might consider is a section devoted to the Recreational Vehicle Outlet. I used to also be service manager of an RV dealer, and I used to see RV's come in that had been plugged into RV outlets installed at home that were wired 220V instead of 120V. A lot of electricians don't understand this special outlet, yet more and more are installed at homes so folks can plug their camper in while it is there.
The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wires!The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
The Quickest Way to Check for Faulty Electrical Wiring!The Plug-In Outlet Tester
This is the first tool I grab to troubleshoot a problem with outlet circuit wiring. This popular tester is also used by most inspectors to test for power and check the polarity of circuit wiring.
It detects probable improper wiring conditions in standard 110-125 VAC outlets Provides 6 probable wiring conditions that are quick and easy to read for ultimate efficiency Lights indicate if wiring is correct and indicator light chart is included Tests standard 3-wire outlets UL Listed Light indicates if wiring is incorrect Very handy and easy to use.
Strip Off Wire Insulation without Nicking and Damaging the Electric Wire!The Wire Stripper and Wire Cutter
My absolute favorite wire stripping tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and this is the tool I use to safely strip electrical wires.
This handy tool has multiple uses:
The wire gauges are shown on the side of the tool so you know which slot to use for stripping insulation.
The end of the tool can be used to grip and bend wire which is handy for attaching wire onto the screw terminals of switches and outlets..
The wire stripper will work on both solid and stranded wire. This tool is Very Handy and Easy to Use.
