    Straw man argument, minus 10 points! :(Facts cancel out hype.In your case it seems to need
    saying.Having information is a dominant strategy, as is carrying a weapon. You have it if you
    need it but you...

    Having dry skin when contacting residential voltages can save your life. Not so above 600v.That
    goes without saying. Then again it does not really apply to a site called houserepairtalk.com.

    Discovered that I have 120volts coming from running water to recept cover plate screw. My wife
    found it actually... was not happy.. :(How did you discover this?How did you measure this? I

    Firstly is this correct that 240v in a laundry room does not require GFCI when close to a sink.
    And secondly, if this is true, why?My basic logic would make me think that 240v is more
    dangerous than 1...

    Because the 120v dryer motor may cause nuisance trips?Sorry for spreading bad advice from other
    sites (if your dryer has a grounded frame)"Proper Application of Qwik-Gard GFCIs • Do not

  • Posted in thread: Bonded Ground and Neutal in Outbuilding Panel on 04-12-2014 at 10:07 AM
    OK, if this is an existing installation it is FINE. The neutral IS bonded to the panel
    enclosure. It is treated just like a main panel. You have to remember, the ground rod and
    associated wire have NO...

    I see that link shows "simplified" and "interleaved" panels. Very interesting, I've never heard
    those terms before. I see that interleaved describes pretty much all modern panels withing the
    last 35-4...

    This is why I cringe when I hear an electrician say "I will have to pickup a neutral from
    somewhere" & rarely do you see them poled together in the panel.Thing is, I have NEVER heard a
    self respecting...

    You will definitely have to re-wire the whole fixture. Most likely this fixture has starters
    that will have to be eliminated. Sometimes it can look complicated, but every wire is shown in
