dc volt affecting ac outlet
I've blown 2 ac outlets and couldn't figure out why. The outlet just upstream of it was fine but this one outlet at then end of the line has blown twice. Both times since I changed a wire from the charge controller to the batteries. I think though that I figured out why they blew (fried, went capput, stopped working). I thought at first it must be a mouse chewing threw the wire, but then I looked at the wiring and noticed my CC to Battery wire was wrapped around the ac line. So, my thought is that a DC field was setup around the AC wire and somehow caused the outlet to blow. My question is, does this sound like a plausible explanation or not. Am I on the right track or am I just dreaming that such a field could be generated enough to blow the outlet? I unwrapped the wire from the AC line and will put another outlet in tomorrow and see if it blows. But before I go through yet another outlet, is this even possible? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
