Exclamation Check your wiring connections in your electrical load center

Warning for Thor owners...I was doing a converter upgrade in my new Outlaw 29H and noticed MOST of the wire connections inside of the WFCO box were loose - including the primary battery connections. Recommend removing the two screws and checking them all. Disconnect power first

yes, agree - early on in our journey with our new Palazzo in August of '14, with 100degree temps, we had constant problems with the rear a/c unit tripping it's breaker...

I of course thought it was an overloaded breaker panel, but started also to realize that the incoming power should be plenty(100a total) to power everything in the coach, even at the same time...

after a call into Thor customer service, they suggested that I check the rear connection of each of the breakers - sure enough, one of them had a wire coming loose - it was touching just enough to make a connection most of the time, but would come loose enough other times to trip the breaker.

While your at it look at wire under connector. You should be able to see at least a little copper. I have found wires not stripped enough and insulation was under clamping screw.

Part of my spring coach wake up routine. Check the power wire hardware in the AC and DC load centers, transfer switch, generator, batteries and power cord. All have the potential to work loose with the vibration of moving down the road.
