Turns out when he bought the Tiffan coach from the factory in '07, "they" forgot to put the w/d drain hose into the coach's drain tube. First time they used the w/d it flooded the back of the coach and poured down through the wall/floor into the lower compartment and right through the transf s/w box. Looking at the replaced box there was a large rust stripe that coated all the contacts. It took 5 years for it to fail, but fail it did. The top of the box has punch holes for elec connectors and is not even close to being water tight or resistant.
I would recommend you closely inspect every area the water ran through, for possible future elec problems.
Sound advice. The MH is in the shop now getting the once over.

Couple years ago while dewinterizing, closing all valves and opening others undoing the bypass for the hotwater and now its time to add water, turn on faucet walk to turn valve to fill water tank and hear a FFSSSSSSSS from in the MH run and turn faucet off then to the inside of the RV. Look at kitchen floor and there is black ink everywhere. OH $$$$$, the carbon water filter under the sink must have had a bit of water left and the freeze popped it off but still hanging there. The street volume of water caused the carbon to flow everywhere, can you say BLACK INK. Well rolls of paper towels later we are cleaned up and now to the carpet, Yes there was enough to go over the threshold and into onto the carpet. Thank God for wet vacs, but still lots of black. Well let it dry over night and vac again and it comes out great. New lesson, that plug that comes with the water filter is tobe used.
