Hi to all, Didn't know Christmas could be such fun. Arrived home yesterday evening to find the front of my house ablaze with light thanks to next door's Christmas decorations. This morning in the daylight I see a double socket fixed to the wall, cables run to a weather proof box and lighting cables everywhere. On my return this evening I just couldn't resist it. I plugged my RCD tester into the spare socket and shut half the house down, scurried back into the house to see neighbour frantically checking lights. Scrooge would be proud and it may not be the only time his RCD Trips! Merry Christmas to all.

LOL Excellent. Try not to get caught and you never know you might get asked to look at the "faulty" rcd

Now say in a Monty Python voice; "I am not an electrician; I am a very naughty boy." I bet you stuck chewing gum under desks, pulled girls hair and made paper aeroplanes at school. Did you bill your neighbour?
