Now that was funny. I just thought he had a 51 amp fuse.

Big difference between the two.

I guess so - if that was in my unit it would bug the hell out of me until it was corrected.

It would drive me nuts. I am anal about wiring. Items like this just makes you question what else was half assed. I had to rewire my battery compartment after I pulled into the driveway after picking mine up at the dealer and the landing gear wouldn't work. The negative was grounded by looping it around a sheet metal screw.

I fix things on my new camper that ain't broke all the time.
If I actually KNEW something wasn't right, it would drive me nuts.

Easy fix, get (2 )20a fuses and replace the (2) 15a fuses. Easy fix. Problem solved. Oh don't forget to turn the one fuse over so the current won't flow backwards.

I'm at the dealership now... will sleep here tonight to have more punch list items fixed tomorrow. There should by three (3) 20 amp fuses - 5, 6, 10. All other Wildcats have 20s in these positions. We will not flip the upside down fuse... but Ha anyway.

The leak in my wardrobe slide appears to have been fixed, the microwave keypad failure has been demonstrated (awaiting FR response), leaking galley grey water valve has not been addressed. Kitchen slide cutting flooring has not been completely fixed although the following pic gives a clue to the 'underlying' issue.

After the flooring repairman leaves tomorrow afternoon, the service manager and I will decide when/if I'll have to bring back the trailer.

Thank you all for your support and encouragement!

Your fuses would drive me crazy. Of course, I'm the kind of guy that has to pull each one and document exactly what is on each circuit. I even had to replace the poorly written labels to satisfy my OCD.
