Just pluggin' along

Maybe I'd better get a bigger bucket of salt water for the steps...?
OK, I Changed cords, got 116.4V at the shoreline connection, 0V at the screen door, and 116.2V at an inside receptacle. The old cord is not long enough to reach the neighbor I'm thinking about, but I'm sure if I don't come up with another idea, one of his other neighbors will...thanks for the direction, concern, and senses of humor...BTW, am I a neighbor to any of you all...?

Okay the real question should be why you have a "moho" in the street with no wheels. The neighbors probably booby trapped it so you would move it.........maybe?

Maybe the neighbors stole the wheels. Rigging it to keep you from touching it would be counter to encouraging removal of said moho. If you can't touch it, you can't move it...

Now...Honestly, it sounds like you have a bare 120 volt wire touching something it shouldn't. You should have several breakers, keep turning them off one by one until your neighbor no longer gets shocked.

Talk about bad neighbors. I had people living behind me that were so bad that someone posted this sign on their garage door a few hours after they were gone...

Thanks,Terry, I will do that tomorrow...

Richard, did those neighbors, by any chance, move to ...oh...say...Silverton...?

O63, he sold the garage door with the sign, but let someone steal my micro/convection oven out of his front yard!!!(saved me a dump charge)

Vlamica, I'm sorry, but I ran out of extension cord before I ran out of qualified neighbors...maybe if we created a network of extensions...California is big on networking...

The shocking experience has actually turned out to be a most enjoyable experience, if you leave out the electrifying results, the battery charges should be dropped, and the whole thing has been re-volting...(shameless plug)...I'll put it in a sock(et) now, and switch to another topic...might generate some interest...I'll leave a light on...

When I was teaching Paramedics for LA City and County Fire Departments, I learned one thing I always remembered from some of the fireman. If you are unsure of something with electric current running through it, and I am talking low voltage only stuff, use the back of your hand to test it. When you touch hot current using the palm side of your hand, if there is enough juice, it causes your muscles to contract, making you grab the hot item and you literally cannot let go until someone bashes you hard off it using something non conductive like a broom.

My mind is filled with odd things like this that I hope I never have to use, which is probably why there isn't enough space in my memory to remember why I walked into the next room...........
