I added a 50A circuit breaker for my hot tub.

Mr. Dan,

Just curious what they did about the floor? Mine has very similar issues on the LR slide out and floor. It's off to the dealers on Saturday.

I slept in my trailer in the dealership's wash bay again last night. A few of my problems have been solved, but this floor is another
matter. We've been waiting for advice/authorization from F. R. ever since the bow in the floor was found. My service manager sent 14 pics to F. R. warranty showing them several of my issues including this floor problem. Every Wildcat on the lot (no others are my model) has a bow in the same area - none as severe as mine. Service anticipates the flooring will have to be peeled back and the floor pulled down and anchored. I'm working a plan to use dealership containers to offload my trailer stuff into my truck so I can leave the trailer and go home. I'll let you know when I hear anything.

I DO have good news for some of you regarding the fix of another MAJOR issue. As I wrote earlier, we determined that my fuse panel requires 20 amp fuses in positions 5, 6, 10 so service gave me 3 (three) 20s.

Using wisdom I gleaned from this very forum, I installed the 20s upside down with the theory that, if upside down fuses make electricity flow backward, this will put electricity back through the meter and will reduce energy costs.

Camp on!

02 / 20... it doesn't really matter until/unless they blow.

Better to have 15 amp fuses in a 20 amp circuit than 20 amp fuses in a 15 amp circuit.

I want it right... like it's marked... like all the other units on the lot.

Salt, here's the word. F.R. Warranty authorized the dealership to move the couch, roll back the carpet under the couch, roll back the flooring, remove the slide-out fascia, remove the metal "horseshoe" around the slide-out, extend the slide-out out beyond the edge of the floor, drill holes in the floor, countersink 4" carriage bolts through the floor and into a cross member/support, fill the bolt head holes, replace the flooring and carpet, and re-trim the slide fascia.

Warranty will ask a tech for the thickness/width of the 4" bolts they've been using to fix this issue (hmmmmmm) and on Monday this work should begin in earnest!
