Hey there everyone and good morning.
I have a question and was hoping someone more experienced than I could answer. I was in the process of doing a small electrical modification yesterday and ran across this. I was getting ready to install a inline surge protector 30 amp in my trailer. I have a 27RL Keystone cougar 2012. The shore line cord comes into the trailer at the rear of the unit, and coils up in the bottom of a small cabinet. I removed the cabinet to gain more access to install the surge protector. What I found was the shore line cord which is composed of 10 gauge wire, terminates into a junction box. The wire that comes out of the junction box seems to be only 12 gauge romex (orange color) and I assume goes to the converter. Sorry to be so long winded, but my question is if this is normal?
I was under the impression that the 10 gauge shore line went all the way to the panel box or the converter. Is sizing down to a 12 gauge wire ok or standard?
Any advice and instruction is greatly appreciated
I do not want to proceed until I get some answers. Thanks Tator
