I guess this is really showing my ignorance, but...

What do you do with the 'third' wire if the 'fourth' wire is ground?

Are you talking about 110 or 220?

When I moved in here, I had 30-volts of 'stray voltage'...I only had a 60 amp access (two 30-Amp screw fuses) and the 2 wires from the road were bare copper...Wild grape vines had climbed the pole between here and the road, and according to the power company, that is where the stray was coming from...Have since had the wires from the road replaced...
