My fuse marking label is machine printed with the values and description of each position. My Keystone Passport prior to my FR Surveyor was machine printed too. I'm surprised to see a label that is hand printed rather than machine printed. Hand printing can just lead to human error (Like shown here) and take more time. Who else out there has hand printed fuse labels? Just curious.

[QUOTE=jwedell;671445]2015 Surveyor Cadet hand printed.

That's strange since both our RV's were built at the same factory.

I looked at several Wildcats on my dealer's lot to verify I should have 3 20 amp fuses. The fuse/breaker labels in each of them were handwritten by the same dude/dudette.

Floor Fixed - Still Can't Take Trailer Home

O.K., the floor is fixed and it looks good to me. However, the slide STILL drags after all manner of adjustments. Another unit on the sales lot is worse, says my service manager who is trying to have another conversation with F.R. warranty regarding what he calls a design issue.

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.
Attachment 59417

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!
"Make electricity flow backward"? Reminds me of when we lived in Southern California back in the early 1970's. A rumor was going around (later found to be true) that if you pulled your electric meter out of its receptacle and reinstalled it upside down the meter would indeed run backwards. Of course you would break the seal by doing this,but some people took the chance. It was also dangerous to do this.

The electric provider did crack down on the people who did this.
