Did what you said and both the trailer battery and aa battery read 0.01 Maybe my OHM is broken? The wires got hot instantly from the 12v battery on the OHM. Wow!

What do I do? As soon as I touched the black wire from the OHM to the battery it got super hot. See why I am worried about my battery being plugged in. lol

Can I check it while it is on the charger or should I shut that off first?
