    Reverse Polarity.

    Hi guys.

    I just purchased a 1996 Bayliner 2452. When I plug into the shore power I get a reverse polarity light. I have no clue where to even start with this.

    What I am plugged into is a 30 amp 2 foot cord that is plugged into a regular extension cord to my house. I have tried a couple of different cords and a couple of different power sources.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Pick up a tester like this and check your outlet and also your cord. I carry one with me and you would be surprised at how many times I have found a mis-wired outlet in a marina.

    Currently watching from shore while deciding what my next boat will be !

        If neutral and hot are reversed on you have outlet this will be the cause. A tester will let you know.

          Check the home outlet first with an inexpensive polarity tester from a hardware store.

            Solved...picked up a tester and found that the polarity was reversed on the extension cord. I had used three different cords and all had the polarity reversed. I can see maybe one, but three???? Anyways, forth cord in my garage worked.

            Thanks for the help.
