Electrical issue HELP!

The cap was off the electrical bay, the power cord unreeled and drug, which grinded the ground.

So, new power cord put onto the Shoreline cord reel (model CC50H). When being installed, the ground bolt in the reel busted off - so he grounded it to another spot. It tests fine with a meter, but out of 6 tries, 5 times the surge guard (a TRC model 3460) keeps kicking out. Any thoughts??

Sounds like an insufficient ground.Static continuity test passes muster, but under load, is possibly arcing. Check to see if the cable is loose at the ground connection and tighten or relocate accordingly.

Ground doesn't carry any power, its there in case if a short.

But It does need to be connected to a solid grounded point, for the surge guard to detect.

I am aware that ground does not carry any current. I was just trying to explain that an insufficient or erratic ground creates a potentially incomplete connection, on the surge protector, when not properly attached.
