Generator wiring 2015 FR3

Be sure to check the enclosed waterproof junction box next to your generator where the wiring from the coach connect with the generator wiring. I just had to have a control board replaced in the generator. It was fried due to an undersized wire nut installed by Forest River which had come off and shorted out. I'm out of warranty for Forest River and it wasn't cheap!

Generator wiring 2015 FR3 (same problem)

I was lucky, the wire nut came off and the wire opened but did not short so I did not have the damage.
