Re: Removing my ground wire, help?
Ditto on getting an electrician. The neutral and ground should be tied together ONLY at the main disconnect. But if turning off the main does not turn off ALL of your loads, it sounds like someone may have connected loads to the line side of the meter. Better know as "stealing *****". As a utility electrician, we see this a lot. You need to find out what is going on ASAP, because the main is there to prevent fire in case of a fault. Ahead of the main, the only overload protection is the primary fuse at the transformer, which takes a LOT of current to blow.
Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should!
