Question about 1986 Volkswagen Wagon Camper
Check the earth on your leads and also all the connections in side the van. start on the hook up connection and work out from there. make sure it is disconnected before taking it apart. you can use a ohm meter to check the cables arnet broken. there should be almost no resistance in the earth. it is impoortant to fix this aswell as the live fault! the eart(ground) connection should result in blown fuse befor you get a shock like you are.when you resolve this you will find fueses start blowing. if its the one in the house that feeds the hook up you will have to go over all the electrics to find the bad connection. if its in the camper you know which circuit it is to look at.
you can ground the camper cruedly by ptting a copper steak in the mud and connecting it to the battery negative.
have fun and play safe as electricity is not fun if you get it wrong. make sure you turn it off before you fiddle!
