Since you didn't really say what your question was, how can any of us answer it?

He said if you'll send him a PM, he'll tell you what his question is. See post #1.

Daniel, I think you may be referring to a previous nitrogen thread which is a subject that goes off the rails frequently.

Go ahead and ask your reverse polarity question here, as this can be a dangerous issue depending on what all is wrong....and this isn't the same subject as nitrogen.

If I don't know what he's wanting to ask about, I don't know if I know anything about it, and therefore I don't know if I should PM him or not.

Reverse polarity could be related to the battery, to the reverse polarity fuses in the fuse panel, or reverse polarity on any number of components such as A/C, HWH, furnace, fridge, propane detector, etc.

Isn't the point of this forum to get help and learn from each other? Hard to do with a PM. Curious what the question is.

Or if your circuit tester or surge guard is plugged into some socket and is telling you that you have reverse polarity, take out the socket and hook the black wire to the copper colored side and the white wire to the silver colored side.

OK Guys, the member is most likely a little hesitant to ask an open forum question due to the fact he got some less than helpful responses in another thread he had previously.....as well as members sniping amongst themselves on that topic.

Several of the replies here are not really showing him this thread would be different.

If the OP doesn't want to post his question for all the members to see, then it won't most likely get a lot of helpful responses....but that is the OP's choice.

Ok I have had a bunch of pms. So here is what happened. I went camping at a state park near my house we camp there a lot. When I hooked up my power the surge protector showed rev polarity. I called maintenance and when he got there he seen the surge protector and said right off that when people use these he gets calls all the time. He said that even the local power company has came out and checked out the wiring and everything is ok. He used a meter and checked the line into the box we was hooked to. It all was good. He said that AEP practice is to hook the common and ground together. And he said the power company said that is why it shows rev polarity. Everything in the camper worked ok. Didn't have problems out of anything. So my question is. Is it possible that the ground and common could be the problem? And if there was a problem would I have have problems with my ac or something else? Just trying to find out what may have been wrong. And yes I have had rev polarity at the park before. But it was packed. So this time was not as many there so I wanted to see what maybe wrong
