burned neutral in TT

Just had an issue in a rental TT I maintain. No power anywhere ithe coach. Low voltage burned the neutral wire connection in a junction box between the shore power connection and the breaker panel. Be sure to read voltage between the neutral bar and line voltage when checking at the breaker panel for power. Reading between line and ground doesnt check the circuit that your load sees. I indicated this to my tech as I watched him troubleshoot this and he just kinda shrugged it off, ignoring the advice. Noticing there was romex and no shore power cord at the breakers, I just told him to follow the shore power cord to the junction box and look there. I let the problem show the folly of the technique.

A loose connection will arc and burn too.

^^true true^^ even more common possibly. only reason I stated low voltage was a tech responded to the rental location in a remote mountain location and recorded 30 volts AC at the plug. I didnt want to put the onus on FR for the problem...
