Grounding an appliance

Posted by Chris in Indiana on March 20th, 1999 08:22 PM

Let me preface this message by saying I am electrically
"challenged". I mounted a transmitter in our garage that
controls an invisible fence for pet containment in the
back yard. One of the posts on the transmitter is where
I am supposed to hook up a ground wire attached to a
copper grounding rod buried 3 feet deep. The power cable
for the transmitter has 2 prongs on it and plugs into a
3 pronged outlet. Isn't the "third" hole in the outlet
a ground itself? Can't I hook up the ground post on the
transmitter to the ground on the outlet somehow? Thanks.
