You never know.


Was it a home made cord or a factory cord?

Home made Jim Tried to save a few bucks and make one myself. Used it for many years with no issues, but maybe just got lucky. I just bought a new Camco one off Amazon.

Normal tools, no problem. Electronics you never no. Intill the last few years I always made my own.

All you had to do was reverse two wires on one plug and the problem would have been fixed.

Well I still have it. Was going to buy new heavy duty male and female plugs and redo it. May still do it and keep it for use around the house.

If you rewire the plug just make sure the black(hot) wire goes to the gold colored screw on both the male and female ends of plugs. Then the white(neutral) wire goes to the silver screw on both the male and female ends. Ground to the green screw on both ends and all should be fine.
