At a recent rest stop and after performing our usual visual inspection around the coach, we notice the driver front side-marker wires hanging in the front tire well.
Close inspection tells us that the wires basically snap off on their own during normal driving because of no proper support of the wire harness leading to the side-markers.
The 1st 2 photos basically show how the wire harness was hanging freely and connected to the back of the side-makers.
We wrapped the wire harness and wires and tucked them away as you will see in the last 2 photos and since these markers are only illuminated when you have the emergency flasher on, they won't necessarily pose a normal driving issue.
We already contacted Newmar and a replacement side-marker is in the mail. Once we replace the side-maker, we will ensure that the wire harness and wires leading to the side-marker are properly secured so this won't happen again.
Has anyone had similar issues with their front side-markers and if so, how did you secure the harness in order to avoid the wires from snapping off from the back of the side-markers?
