However, if a person wishes to change the plug on the end of power cord they don't help there.
Actually they will if you are replacing an outlet (1) to will tell you if you shut off the power to the outlet prior to removing the old one and (2) if you wired the new outlet properly. Unless you were referring to an extension cord, then yes they are not helpful.

I carry one of those testers to check the outlet at a campground. I have found quite a few where the wiring was reversed.

What do you do if you find the wiring (polarity?) reversed at a campground?

tell the management you want to be moved and if the other spot is also reversed, I'd go someplace else, poor electrical management means they are taking shortcuts in other areas.

Thanks. I've never known to check that and I've never had a problem that I know of but then I haven't done as much camping as many of you.
