    Default Hotwire for dummies?

    Ok... the fence is up (well... kind of, that's a whole other story that I'm just SURE everyone was expecting ) but we are responsible for hooking the electric up and have absolutely NO idea what we're doing. The wonderful fencer terminated each line of fencing at and did not run any of them in a continuous line, so... I need the most in-depth instructions there are. We need to:

    Hook up the three hot wires to each other
    Hook up each line to "itself" where it picks up on the other side of the corner
    Get a cut-off switch on the bottom one
    Connect those wires to the charger
    How the heck is the charger even hooked up!?!
    Know NOTHING about ground rods or location
    Etc. etc. etc. I'm sure you can see I know nothing about it. Any links, documents, pages, etc.?

    Here ya go! Download, print out, and read, paying particular attention to pages 4 & 5 regarding grounding.

    Also much love for the Premier Supplies catalog. It's a textbook on setting up hotwire!
