Wow! I don't have this problem now, but if I ever do, I'll know what to check first. Gary RVRoamer, you rock!

Sure looks like it was loose wire terminals to me.

When at work we routinely tighten connections to devices like that. Kind of looks like it arced across two power wires IF I'm seeing it right?? All the wires appear to still be connected.

I stand corrected, thank you. This makes me glad I've got the old style plug and outlet "Transfer Switch". If I had had a component burn up like that, I'd seriously consider another such option. Guess this is another item to add to your maintenance checklist. I am very glad just the "switch" burned up!!!

This is the reason you always put the covers back on the electrical boxes! They are designed to contain as much as possible any molten metal and sparks created by a failure. Not always, but most of the time. You were lucky no other damage was done by the open neutral (white wire) to other loads (TV, etc.)
