The fool meets the foolproof system

Me:
So can you give me any insight into why I'm not getting power from the solar panel?
L_:
Well, you unfolded it and you connected it to the socket on the building and plugged in the charge controller inside?
Me:
Yup and yup.
L_:
If you had it folded up and stored there should be nothing wrong with it.
Me:
It was folded and stowed perfectly. No signs of any damage at all.
L_:
The thing is pretty fool proof. Not sure what it could be.
Me:
Well I took my voltmeter and checked the connection at the battery and then each socket along the chain and then got back on the roof and tested the socket on the back of the panel. I'm not getting any volts.
L_:
I suppose you could check those fuses but the thing is hard wired really well. I made it as dummy proof as I could.
Me:
I checked the fuses. I guess I better check everything again.

Later

Me:
Hey, it's me. Just wanted to let you know the solar system is working.
L_:
Good. What was the problem?
Me:
The system was working perfectly. It was my voltmeter that was broken.
Comments:
