DIXON, Ill. — Landyn Gerald Keener, a 3-year-old from Amboy, died June 30 when he touched a door handle of the camper while standing on wet ground, WISC explained.
WISC reported it’s a problem known among RVers as “hot skin.”
Lee County Sheriff John Varga calls it a tragic accident and told WISC nobody was at fault.
Electrical engineer Mike Sokol explained to WISC he’s started a website to educate RV owners about electrical safety. He recommends buying a noncontact voltage tester at a hardware store to test for problems. He also recommends using only electrical outlets for RVs that were installed by a professional.
