What is the best way to try to see if a transformer (pole or potential) 
is good using only a DVOM?  Is it just a matter of making sure the 
terminals aren't open circuited, and that the LV and HV sides aren't 
shorted together (assuming they're really not electrically connected), 
or is there more to it than that?
