So I was cleanin out my fathers rental house for him as the tenants left alot of junk . . . Happened to come across the control head to a Red Snapper electric fence. All I have is the actual red box that has a cord out of it, and the 2 thumbscrews where I assume the wire attaches to. The model is, I believe, 33B(?), but most of the stickers are faded and/or scratched off. On the back it reads - model:115v04j(then a few illegble numbers/letters) The thumbscrews say "fence" and "ground" . . . pretty self explanatory. I was wondering can anyone tell me the ins and outs/ups and downs to using a lectric fence? 1-What kinda wire do I use, I have tons of regular old "baling" wire, will that work? 2-Do I need to make sure that the fence wire doesnt touch anything like a plant or the wood fence or a branch? 3-Can the ground wire just be attached to the ground that the cable/dish guys have out there? 4-Is this Red Snapper basically a plug-and-play item, or do I need alot more parts? 5-And can I test it by plugging it in and using a test light to the thumbscrews? 6- On average, do these thing significantly increase the electricity bill??? I dont consider myself to have a predator problem, but why not try to utilize this thing as a backup, emergency, safety measure? "Better to be looking at it than for it", I always say! Thankyou so much!
