We are now a 501(c)(3) Corp

Jun 5th, 2020 | By | Category: General, RV Safety

After 10 years of writing thousands of articles and answers on dozens of RV owner blogs, along with producing dozens of videos for RV owners, technicians and campground owners, Mike Sokol has taken the next step towards increasing his print and webinar content about electrical safety, along with presenting even more live RVelectricity seminars across the US about RV electrical hookups and safety.

What started as a single question about why a pro-sound engineer colleague was being shocked by a tour bus, has turned into a decade-long quest to educate everyone about electricity; how it works and staying safe while using it. 

I’m utilizing my 50 year background as a Master Electrician, Mechanical/Electrical Engineer, and technical writer to create electrical safety content that’s not only accessible to beginners, but also valuable as a training aid for RV technicians, RV and Residential electricians, and campground maintenance personnel.  

As of June 1, 2020 No~Shock~Zone Inc is a 501(c)(3) corporation that will focus on the following areas:  

RV electrical safety for consumers

RV technician safety and troubleshooting techniques

Campground power maintenance and troubleshooting

ESD (Electric Shock Drowning) around electrified boat docks

Sound and lighting electrical safety for musicians and technicians



Let’s play safe out there….

    This is great news Mike. Congrats. What you have done for folks regarding RV electrical safety is nothing short of incredible. I can only speak for myself, but between reading and rereading your book (RV Electrical Safety- No Shock Zone) and watching your videos, I have a much better understanding and knowledge base of keeping us and our RV safe. And to be able to pass the knowledge you share forward to other campers is what it’s all about.

    Hi Mike. I read your book and it was very helpful in explaining electricity and rv safety while connecting to shore power. I was however, disappointed because I thought it would address the confusion and mixed information about isolated power systems becoming very popular in “vanlife”, specifically solar powered, battery to inverter power arrangements completely off grid with no possible true earth ground. It seems there is endless debate about whether to ground to the van chassis, whether gfic outlets run from the inverters will work, and if vans can become death traps with floating grounds. I’m dizzy trying to understand it all. Have you written on this topic elsewhere? It would be a much appreciated addition to the great book you wrote, which mainly explains shore power where there would be an earth ground and hopefully a ground-neutral connection at the pedestal. thank you!
