had to move to cows to my hay fields yesterday so I started tryin to decipher the HT fence that has not been plugged in for 3 or 4 yrs . I checked all of the corners , tightened all the strainers and only had to build a short run where I cut a gate in a few months back . All of this was done by 9 am sunday. I then started at the fence box, The PO cut all the wires loose and ran a hot wire over to the dog yard so I was having to try and guess what was what. once I found a ground stob I used some spare wire to check continuity to isolate ground wire , Then checked the Hot wire and wired up the box ( I still don't know how he had the dog wire working It was bass ackard ) I got the small area behind barn lighting up all 5 lights on the tester , I move on to the lane area. One side of the lane is working like it should . the other side is not. I find where the underground wire is disconnected , I test these wires and hook them up . Now all 5 wires are hot not every other one . I spent the next 4 hrs connecting and dis connecting wires to try and solve the problem. I finally disconnected all ground wires from the fence on one side of the lane and got top middle and bottom wires hot . I went and bought some new underground wire today and gonna run new ground wire and put in more ground stobs , I am still baffled as to why it would not work the way it was supposed too. all of the double insulated wire is ran in PVC under every gap.
