Well, I got it fixed. Just like always some helper didn't tighten the neuteal wire enough, or what looked like not at all, the wire didn't even have a dent in it from the screw. Word of note: every hard wire connection in an RV needs to be retightened when you take ownership, period. I have seen to many fires from a simple wire not tightened correctly. I'm really suprised there was not any damage other than the back of the plug melted. Have your dealership do it if you can't. This comes from an retired Electrical contractor. What may pass in a house will vibrate loose in an RV.


Thanks guys and girls for the help. David, Nancy and Chloie the 100 lb skinny white lab, all in Texas

I agree 100% I have had a bunch of used motorhomes, every single one after I purchased it has loose wire connections, on genset, on 120v panel, power take up reel, water heater electric assist, you have to check EVERYTHING that you can think of on the 120v side.if the rv has a combination microwave/convection oven, check the recepitical and plug, i have had 3 that I could not get the plug out of the receptical, the cheap pinch recepticals that are use are no match for 1500 watts...period!
