Seems a couple wires are reversed maybe in this setup?? .. I know someone who parks at our church regularly and first time there he checked the plug at the church and moved some wires around ?? What's the setup here ??
what did he change??
Do you have a 20A, 30A or 50A outlet?
In any case, the screws on the jack/outlet are color coded.
Black is the copper color and is hot
White is the silver color and is neutral
Green is the green color and is earth ground
The only difference is the 50A outlet, there are two hot, 120V and 120V which gives you the 240V out. They add a red.
Use a circuit checker to make sure that hot/neutral and earth are all on the correct positions.
I always carry a circuit tester. I always plug it in before I attached to MH to the power.
Camping World has them for about $14.00, Harbor Freight has them for about $2.99 or you can make one using three NE 2 lamps, three 100k 1/4w resistors and a plug for about $1.50.
