Also here is a FAQ from a manufacturer of RV power cords that I should have added to my initial post. It may help:
Please excuse my semi-hijack of the thread, but I have looked, in vain, all over the forums for the specific subject.
My new 26fkws behaves well.....except for that #&@$%* twist-on power cord.
The idiot that replaced hardwired cords with this POS needs to be ......
From day one, we have had to "play" with the cord to get a connection.
Used to be...just pull up and plug in.
Now, I haul out the plug, plug into the (turned off) post, attach/twist/screw the cord in and then communicate with wife, through the window, to see if the microwave light is on.
....diddle,diddle....WAIT, it's on.....no....it's off....on, no....off....
(for the microsoft helpline folks.....yes, everything was done right, and it's plugged in)
(I can just imagine the arcing going on in the plug)
Took it to the dealer. He fussed for a couple days. Got it back with the TT connection rotated 90 degrees, but no improvement in operation.
Why, oh WHY did the factory fix what wasn't broke ??
