Polarity checker.

Hi, it's pretty well known that we should check the camp ground power supply when we hook up. I have almost always had a polarity checker in one of my kitchen outlets. I also have a Kiil-a-watt plugged into a kitchen outlet so I can check cycles and voltage. When I connect my shore power cord, I either ask my wife if the two yellow lights came on, or I go into my trailer and look myself. I do this before we turn on anything that runs on the 120 volt system. My brother checks the polarity at the power post first, before connecting the shore power cord. So today I bought an adapter so I can check polarity at the post.

Bob,

Good idea.

Did you have any trouble finding an adapter for 30 amp, 120 v.?

Gene

Yeah...got one of those too. Our vintage coach has a red light on the inside of the rear access door that goes on if the polars are switched. What I really need is a constant indicator of the battery voltage. See you at 'The Rancheria' next week.
