@Camar068 long runs aren't even that hard ground 1 end of your wire check resistance at the other end to ground. As for blowing meter fuses, if you make a lead for your meter with a common fuse less than your meter fuse it will pop first and your not trying to find a fuse for a fluke at 6pm on a Sunday.

That is a great example and explanation
Been wanting to do a video on youtube to explain it simpler than whats on youtube. I've searched and searched and still can't find that video that makes it simple. I realize it's hard to follow step by step in text.....easier with a visual. Be great to have one with a schematic (to freak the "new to them" out) then lay it out just like in the schematic and show the readings and troubleshooting methods.

Sounds difficult, but is really easy......if you have to compare it to plumbing....look for the leak lol.

right but use the ohm function and understand why it blew, you'll only blow a fuse once.

Yep,I haven't blown one in decades but others do. I didn't know where you were in the learning curve.
