All PUMA 259RBSS owners - electrical problem


On the 259RBSS fifth wheel, the main light switch in the camper controls four different lights. A couple of trips back I happened to notice that the switch was having trouble working, then I felt it and it was very hot. I pulled the wall plate off and saw that the connectors were blackened! I haven't had a chance to take it in to get it fixed, but what I do now is only have two of the lights turned on at once. That makes a big difference, but still unnerving. I hope to take it in this weekend to get it fixed, but this seems like a pretty big issue to be able to easily resolve.

In any case, beware of this problem.

I assume that a lot of the other brands, like Salem at least, that have very similar floorplans in their travel trailers also, may have the same problems.
