This electrical by-pass was discovered when the fire department responded to a fire in a travel trailer.

A firefighter received a shock from an exterior refrigerator during the fire suppression activity.

This pedestal reportedly had the meter removed and the service disconnected in an adjoining utility section.

I would like to wish all a happy and healthy holiday season.

I particularly like the extension cord with the equipment ground removed. I know it keeps the breaker from nusance tripping during a ground fault
