Panel wiring on 2011 Sabre 29 CKDS 5th Wheel
Noticed a hot,brown spot on my interior panel cover. The factory had crimp-wired a 12ga 20A- dedicated wire with a 15A 14ga plug circuit wire, and put the pigtail on a 15 A breaker. Had about 3" of insulation burned off of the 12 ga wire, and all was heavily corroded with green. The crimp connector.was melted, and the metal crimp part pulled off by hand. Cleaned it all up and bought a 20A circuit breaker for the 20A dedicated wire, and hooked up to the existing 15A breaker with the 14 ga 15A wire. Looks like they ran out of 20A breakers at the factory??? Moral of the story is: pull the panel off and check the wiring on your trailer/motorhome ocassionaly,even if things are working right. This was a major catastrophe waiting to happen. Just a heads-up to all of you people who love the lifestyle.
