I guess I shouldnt be surprised......

all 4 sets of brake wires pulled against a crossmember and the frame.$.50 of split conduit would eliminate a possible disaster.

split wire loom, 3 different sizes cheap at Harbor Freight... I used some of all three sizes
first thing I did was crawl underneath and wrap all the bare electrical wires and tie them down with nylon ties on my new 183
took a couple of hours but well worth it for piece of mind

Yep you have to take the FR quality to the next step yourself or stuff may happen.

Trbomax, I spent a whole Saturday under my camper doing the same thing. Put the slide out and see how those wires look also

A very similar problem can occur with propane line hose especially around the tank mount on the front of TT. For a simple fix take an old piece of garden hose cut to 6"-8" and slit lengthwise then slip over the propane hose everywhere it is close to a frame member. You can use tape or Zip tie to keep it from sliding along hose. Check annually and replace as needed. Inexpensive and very effective.

Flybob is correct. The propane hoses leaving the front of the trailer and running towards the rear go up/under a lot of braces in that area

I've seen so many of these shocking reports that I'm wondering if these units are being produced in South Tijuana by deaf dumb blind folks. These are not just annoying little fixes, many are serious safety issues!

I was a couple weeks away from ordering a Class C 3011 when a noticed a few threads like this. After finding many more I decided to never buy a FR product.
