Good idea, we all know what kind of quality those RV duplex outlets are...........

R we trying to plug in too much stuff? TV, Phone chargers, the fridge and micro is already plugged in.... Laptop charger. and I think the wife has one oil radiant heater on the "low setting"
is this too much? any ideas???
Aside from the note that lovely wife is preggy for child #4, which suggests the circuit panel is not the only thing heating up in the Youngtraveller household, am I wrong or is your TT fairly new? If so, I'd have the dealer check out the panel. All the above advice is valid, and maybe you were just overloading the system, but it would be good idea to have the dealer investigate and ensure there is no faulty equipment while warranty is covering it.

Im hoping that FR will cover it under warranty, however with the closest service center a few hundred miles away, and no time right now to take it, we will figure soemthing out....I know they will not do a service call...
and knowing my luck lately since the unit is from texas... the oregon dealer wont touch it......

The #4 child was definatley a surprise....good thing we have a Quad cab truck.....too bad i need a "jump" seat for the jeep now...6 just dont fit in a 5 pass vehicle.....not very well anyways...
I will check the stove for leaks ect tomm morning..
thanks all!!!
