On one of my pastures I have a deal worked out with the neighbor to use an outlet to power my fencer in his barn. The catch is I have to run the power underground to get to my electric fence. A few years ago I had bought some 14-2 underground wire and buried it. I've ran into the problem where this wire has about 1-2 places per year where it will start arcing and I'll have to dig it up and patch it. It's to the point now where I'm planning on replacing this wire. I'm wondering if anyone has any better wire to use for this purpose? The run is about 300 yards.
I'm curious how you know where to dig to make the repairs.
