Who has the best wiring ?

Recently posted about Class A suggestions... Some great info on that thread... Thanks so much ....

Coming from the boating world - its been my experience that the boats with the best wiring systems were typically well built and had the least issues...

I owned an Intrepid and the breakers and wiring were a work of art....

That being said, I have been looking over RV Trader and have not been able to see any pictures on the electrical panels ... almost looks like they are trying to hide the panels so you dont see the birds nests

So which luxury brand (not Newell, provost, etc) puts thought into their wiring ...

Thanks guys

Thanks ... but was hoping for units that are being built today

I saw a picture of one high end coach with a panel that looked like a kid put it together... then another with wiring in the generator room that was hanging all over the place....

Those units are just asking for issues ....

Here is some wiring in a Cabo Yacht ..... Some really nice stuff...

Is there anything close in the RV community ?

Don't have any pics, but the wiring on my Dutchstar is easy to follow, very good drawings AND you can call Newmar or Spartan and get any drawing required by email in a heart beat.
Not too many other manufactures are still even in business to provide this support.

I don't know if they have the "best wiring", but you can download the wiring or plumbing diagrams for just about any Winnebago MH made. They help in tracing issues or for making changes.

The only wiring I've ever seen that compares to the yacht industry was in Newell. The rest just aren't up to that level. Entegra does have some great fuse panels but the 12 volt stuff is in the mid bath and the 120 volt panels are in the side compartment over the driver's seat. The panels are nice but if you ever wanted to add wiring to those locations it would probably be a real challenge.

In addition Winnebago numbers each wire every foot so it can be easily identified. They use a wiring code that is also available on their website. The numbering system and guide came in very handy when diagnosing a trailer socket wiring problem.

Purchased a HRVacitioner, 2013 the electric outlets they use are junk. I was having a "open ground" problem. These plugs are the type you just push the wire into, no stripping. Found the plug where the open ground was. Removed it from the wall and gave a SMALL tug on each wire comming out, one of the two 14/2 wires just came out. Poor quality poor workmanship.
