Electrical Question from Doug about Other Electrical Issue
Question: I have an older (1994)camping trailer with an older Magnatek converter in it. The problem is we have a constant hum through all of our audio speakers in the trailer even when the speakers are not being used. Then when you turn anything DC powered on you get a huge hum (surge noise) through the speakers for a moment. Any ideas what could be causing this?
Thanks for your electrical question Doug. Some of the Magnatek inverters have specific built-in filtering to eliminate or reduce the problem of noise that is produced when using other devices such as audio equipment. Your unit may not have that feature.

The Safest Way to Test Electrical Devices and Identify Electric Wiring!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, [amazon.com], I use for the detection of Standard 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.
