Mis-wiring a 120-volt RV outlet with 240-volts

I’ve been answering a lot of forum questions lately from RV owners who paid an electrician to install a 30-amp/120-volt RV outlet for powering their RV in the driveway. But the electrician somehow gets the wiring wrong and connects 240-volts to their 30-amp outlet rather than 120-volts. Of course, plugging your 120-volt RV into a mis-wired 240-volt outlet will destroy just about every electrical appliance in seconds….
