Hello all, it's been awhile but I could use some help from the electricians on here. I will post some pictures at the end that will hopefully help.
My new tow vehicle is a freightliner toter home, it has an onboard Kubota diesel generator. After finding the specs on the generator to insure I could use it, I found it has a 240 volt, 50 amp output. Only problem was it had a strange end on the cord so I just replaced it with a female 50amp end.
Now, when testing my plug (using the diagram in picture) across my pins Y,X I have 240 Volts, across pins Y,W and X,W I have 120 Volts. W,G is 0. The problem I am having is that it states I should have 120v between Y,G and X,G but I am getting random numbers like 39v and 18v.
Can anybody explain why this might be? My first guess was a grounding issue so I bought a new strap and cleaned the area good but no change.
Could it still be a ground issues just because the genny sits on rubber pads and obviously the truck sits on rubber? Just throwing things out there. I don't want to plug my 5th wheel in until I'm 100% positive I'm good.
Thanks in advance for any help!
