PS--if we are still talking genset junction box--shore power isnt involved??????? If in ATS or surge protector, different issue.....
Good point on shore power issue. The ats side of my wiring looked to me to be 6-awg, but the gen side was 8-awg...

It is on the ceiling of the generator compartment. Slide the gen out and follow the conduit coming from the gen to the coach. It should be a 4" gray box.
Ok thanks I'll check mine and my friends Alpine.

If the wires you are talking about are in the junction box mounted on the ceiling of the granny compartment they are ONLY for the granny, the shore power has nothing to do with it. However a bad ATS could cause the problem.
