My theory is that the licensed electrician or plumber, for that matter, has 'done it the same way' forever.

At some point, they stop thinking, and their hands move almost automatically.

Anytime you require them to think, you either get 'we don't do it that way' or they just do whatever they routinely do. Not that they are bad people, but they are creatures of habit.

My experience as an engineer has tended to be working on new stuff all the time, so you have to think first, then act.

Of course, along with that, you will never hear me say the 'last words of the Southern Bubba', "Hey, y'all hold my beer and watch this!"

I know but on almost every 240v outlet available the hots are on opposite sides with the neutral and or ground in the middle. On the 14-50 RV outlet the one on top is even u shaped like the most common ground. So you'd think it would be almost instinctual to wire it right.

Trust but verify.

Of course making sure an electrician has correctly wired a trailer outlet means that the verifier needs to know that the electrician is not supposed to install a 240V outlet....

And further it means that the consumer does not tell the installer that he wants "a 240V outlet for my trailer installed". (I am sure that never happens)


Gradiens super tenui glacie.

Yep, I'd probably be a lot happier if I stopped doing that. Fall in line lemming, fall in line.
