To GROUND or NOT to GROUND, that is the question?
To GROUND or NOT TO GROUND, that is the question! Not sure how to approach this topic. While camping, we have encountered some REAL NASTY electrical storms and of course, I lowered my TV antenna along with my external WI-FI extender antenna (10' above the TT). I have a Lightening arrestor on the main service, but it has no where to go when I am dry-camping. Now I am wondering if I should ground the TT while dry-camping? The only parts of the TT that are in contact with the ground are the stabilizers and the tongue jack and I am not really sure if that is really considered a good ground connection. I am wondering if maybe I should invest in a ground rod and cable, only to be used if one of those nasty electrical storms is forecasted? I have not heard of anyone's TT taking a direct lightening hit, but I am sure it has happened.
