    Hi guys me again still learning at 54.
    Just doing some testing at home to get my head around things
    Testing end to end of rfc and getting different readings on end to end of phase and end to end of neutrals.
    Am I correct to be thinking a bad connection on an outlet somewhere as rfc wired in 2.5 t&e pvc so both phase and neutral both same csa ?

    are you referring to an R1+R2 test?

    is it a long circuit - is it just sockets or what?
    did you wire in all the accessories? is the cable pinched or snagged anywhere?

    ok - well it's difficult to diagnose without taking each socket off until you find a loose connection. that's probably the next step to be honest im afraid.
    I presume you have tested more than once to check?

    So am I correct to be thinking will be a bad connection ?
    So nothing else can make it have a difference between the two other than bad connection or damaged cable ?
