Make extension 220 volt cord for 220 volt welder

most 220v welders have a NEMA 10-50 plug or the NEMA 6-50 plug--the input /output ratings thru recepticle and thru plug are same-configuration of plug prongs are different( Grainger Catalogue shows simularities and differences) main difference is AC Horsepower Ratings are different, and that applies Only on equipment that uses 3 phase, not your welder.Use an Ohmmeter to touch unpowered wire connection under shroud at ground and plug prong, then red power connection to corresponding plug prong, and again to black connection and plug prong,mark them w/ felt pen w/ corresponding colors (Green, Black Red). Change out wire plug to fit into dryer or stove recepticle, or make an extention adapter plug witch fits stove recepticle and extends out thru floor to carport and goes to 10-50 recepticle-whereas ground green goes to W position (Center) Y is Black and goes to Y Black, X is Red and goes to X red and cap off the white neutral coming from plug -welders and hot water tanks do not return unused electrcity via the white neutral (return) wire--they use up what is available on demand in heating elements or in welders - the electromagnetic field.GET HELP DOING THIS, by someone who has knowledge, SKILLS and EXPERIECE. I have 1 welder fitted to go into dryer plug which has 14-30 recepticle, and i have 1 where i kill stove circuit at panel, unplug stove, plug in 14-50 plug which has a 10-50 recepticle on other end, plug in welder 10-50 -p, flip cicuit breaker switch to on-welder has full power range capacity. No oven in use while welder going--but probably wouldnt run it anyway if on different circuit.Any doubts whatsoever--anything not 100% clear--DO NOT DO THIS or any other Electrical Manipulations--have a licensed electrician stub in a secondary circuit breaker off your main if load is acceptible and have him wire in the recepticle which your plug will fit into---.

I want to add a new circut to my fuse panel

Maybe I am not understanding you correctly. Most motor homes and RV come standard with a shore power recepticle. Are you wanting to add two sources of power? If so, you will need to really rework your wiring on the inside of your RV.
I have a generator on my motorhome and the generator plugs into the source recepticle when I want to run on generator, or I unplug to connect shore power.

Installed a 12,000 btu LG window unit. Did not see that the plug was a standard 250v. I changed recepticle, and the manual said to be sure to have a 20 amp breaker, which there is. The unit comes on but...

What is the voltage of the unit? What is the voltage of the circuit? You say standard 250 V plug ... is that the rating or the configuration of the plug?

More specifically, your 12,000 BTU unit should be on a circuit of its very own to preclude over loading the circuit and causing damage to your AC.

On my Back-ups ES 550 the "Building Wiring Fault"

This red light usually indicated the ground on the outlet the UPS is connected to is not properly connected to ground.
It could also mean the ground and neutral wires on the connected outlet are reversed.

Looks like the plug started to burn. I am

If the plug started to melt, any electrician could change the plug. Sounds like the cause was a worn out recepticle though. When the blades in the recepticle lose their tension a lot of heat uilds up. This could cause a fire. I would have that recepticle checked/replaced also.

The light in my Marvel 3BAR cooler does not come on. The unit has power and is otherwise functioning well.

The 3BAR cooler has a 10-inch light bar that has multiple indicasent elements and is plugged in to the ceiling receptacle via a three pin plug. If you have a resistance/continuity tester you can unplug the light and check it for continuity across the two outer pins. (the center is ground). You can can also loosen the two screws that it the assemlby to the ceiling, remove the assembly and carefully test it with power. Most likely, it has burnt out. If the light checks good, then power must not be reaching the recepticle. Power is routed to the recepticle directly from the power cord via the door switch (when open) or from the ON/OFF rocker switch in the toe-kick. I hope this helps.

Snow on the Tv screen

Make sure the dehumidifer is grounded with a 3 pin plug, into a 3 pin recepticle. If so, try plugging the dehumidifer or the TV into another power outlet.
