Power Failure Within the Coach
I thought I should share a problem I had with my coach and power supply to the automatic switch from the Gen set. This very easily could have caused a serious fire danger. There is a eight inch power junction box above the gen set. You only get to it when the gen set is extended out. The pig tail from the gen set attaches to the main line to the Auto Switch cable at this point. I wasn't able to get gen power or an auxillary gen power, at a dry camp at Lake Powell, 104+ degrees of course. I traced it to this eight inch box. To make a long story short, the factory connected the wires with wire nuts that were way to small. It had burner apart two of the wires and wire nuts. That left them burnt and bare against the box. This could have easily caught my coach on fire. So I insulated and put very small stainless steel hose clamps on temporarily, because there were no large wire nuts within 150 miles. Worked great and I cleaned everything up and put the appropriate wire nuts on in my garage at home. Watching my large self climb under there could have been a, You Tube, moment.
My coach is a 2006 number 75563, I would suggest inspecting the connections at that junction box. It is located above the Gen set or just under the floor between the passenger and drives seat.
Good Luck, Dan
