What's up with my fence? Charger issues...
So, we re-hung our electric fencing today - went from 1/2" tape to bare wire, because we seemed to be losing a lot of charge, we have a 20 mile charger on about 3/4 of an acre.
Charger clicks and blinks when not connected to the fenceline (still grounded), but once connected to the main fence continues clicking but not blinking. We've checked for obstructions/grounds along the line and found nothing...not even a charge on the wire coming directly from the charger to the fenceline.
Looking for troubleshooting ideas - we're admittedly not the most electrically inclined and the only thing that was changed is tape to wire. The same wire was used to connect the charger to the tape as is being used now.
Help! (I also broke the tester - so have been grabbing the wire to test for charge - not fun!)
