If you have this problem, this could be the reason.

If you have this problem, this could be the reason.
We had our 2013 Sunseeker on the road for most of the summer. Hope that I can help others out if they have the same trouble. In the heat of New Mexico we could not get the air to come on when we stopped for the night. Checked out the usually, breakers, power supply,thermostats , went up on the roof. Lastly took the cover off of the A C in the ceiling where the filter is, a 6 prong wire connecter hung down, it was not pushed in to the locked position at the factory and after 2,500 miles it worked all the way out, pushed in securely and have had no problem since.
At about 8,000 miles one night could not get any 110 volt power to anything . Again checked out all the easy fixes and found nothing wrong. Would not work on shore power or generator. Got under the bed and took the cover off of the transfer switch box, the screw holding the cover on had been screwed into a wire connecter and in time worked in to the wire. It had melted the connecters together as it had shorted out the hot wires. Rewired properly and got lucky it had not burned any switches or other components up. Also lucky it had not started a fire under the bed, could be I would not be here to type this up. Will try to post a few pictures of this. Hope this helps someone else out.
Love having this forum to go to.

You and your family are very lucky. You should get on your knees every night and thank the man upstairs that you were fortunate enough to have the knowledge to locate and then fix the problem.

And that it didn't catch fire with you inside! Very good catch!

Amazing in a bad way, that something could short out like that, and not trip a breaker. I know breakers and fuses can't catch everything, but still. You are indeed, a very lucky RVer to still be around to write your article.

One thing I don't like about the Sunseeker (but haven't checked other models) is sleeping on top of all those wires. In the 3170, there is storage on the top right under the bed. But still doesn't make me feel any better....
