When you take it in, have them check the wires on the AC bus bar in the breaker box. We had some come loose and it was giving us some electrical problems. (5 minutes job at most).

Amazing Skip; you were very lucky.
It could have been much worse.

[QUOTE=NHpatriot;741357]Hi all...my first post and glad to have found my way to the forum.

Got back to my camper last nite ('11 Berkshire bunkhouse) and the appliances don't seem to be getting electricity. Had left the washer running (wet clothes still locked in there) and the furnace on, but the microwave is out, the fridge running on LP. Some wall outlets working, some not. I looked in the external/driver's side fuse box and didn't see anything blown (altho none of them are labeled as being for appliances). I am plugged in to shore power.


Are you home or on the road? There are a couple of us with 39QS Berkshires in the Nashua NH area. If you are home we might be able to look it over and help

Wow that's generous...could be a while tho...am actually in California at the moment!

Have had some service done on the West Coast before and found a few places for service.

Thanks for posting the recall link...will definitely have that looked at! Just thankful nothing really bad has happened.

The brand of the recalled AC switch was IOTA. If you still have it in your coach Forest River will provide a new replacement. Get it out fast as under load it can catch fire. With the coach unplugged from AC open the switch and see if any of the wires looked burned or are loose.

good luck
