Junction box under the slide

Hi!! We have a 2019 33SI TT with 50 amp service and have had lots of electrical issues some of which were repaired at the dealership under warranty. Our kitchen island GFCI tripped and wouldnít reset so we replaced it only to have the same thing happen. I have read to check the box under the slide for water but donít know where this is as the underneath is all enclosed?! Any suggestions appreciated

In your other post you said that you thought the microwave caused the main breaker to trip. Now you have GFCI problems. The 50 amp breaker is the main and if the microwave tripped it and not the branch breaker which should be 15 or 20 amp max you have a big problem. Just my thinking since it is a 2019 and still under warranty it needs to back to the dealer. If they cant fix it try another dealer. Tripping the main breaker with nothing on is dangerous and nothing to mess around with. Just my 2 cents.

Check for a junction box under the slide. It sometimes fills with water and trips the GFCI.

All good advice, even the more candid comments are spot on. Electrical issues in a trailer are not only frustrating but possibly dangerous. Like kill you dangerous.

I'm only adding to Mark's comment here to let you know I've had two trailers with GFIs tripping..replaced them 2x and ended up with the issue being the junction box under the slide causing a the short. However it could be anywhere going all the way to the post. I've had a a hidden, inline broken ground on my power cord and I was literally getting zapped stepping on the aluminum threshold into the camper.

Just find a shop that can do the warranty work. Might be a two dollar fix, but it could be much more serious which you don't want be be fussing with anyways.

My money's on the box not being sealed properly out the door.

The idea of posting question on here is to get a possible answer. That's what being provided, possible answers. If we just answer with "take it back to the dealer" then it is a waste of time for the op to even ask the question and for us to provide possible causes. Many have experienced the same issues and are giving their information on how they found and fixed the problem.



There are many on here that have the skill and knowledge to fix problems themselves. So rubber stamping any question with "take it back to the dealer" means nothing to them.



But if there is any doubt, and mean ANY doubt, to their ability to find and fix the problem then take it back to the dealer.

I hear ya Mark, my blood boils everytime I had to drag my brand new unit back because of missing parts/shoddy work that I could have fixed in my driveway but ..I can't speak for the others, however I responded based on the following critiera:
  1. It is a brand new trailer
  2. It has had electrical issues already
  3. It is under factory warranty
  4. It is a 110v issue
  5. The short in my trailers were only found after replacing outlets and pulling the entire underbelly apart.

Lastly anything I've touched and attempted to repair is just another headache when I've ended up going back to the dealership and have to argue a warranty claim. Just my experience.

Mark, I see your point. If you screw it up and then take it back to dealer to fix it, you put yourself into a situation where they may not fix it under warranty.


I've made fixes to the rv myself, but when it was above my comfort level or knowing it will be covered under extended warranty I took it in for dealer to work on.

Yep. I was one of the victims of severe oxidation on our front cap. We were able to claim it under warranty however the service guy said we would have been out of luck had we try to buff it out or use one of the DIY tricks. It was a $2300 warranty claim. I found out the bigger claims require a rep to review do even if your service folks are reasonable the rep has the final say.

Shoddy electrical work

Hereís a picture of what happened to me. Very dangerous wiring in a CF26RK 2010 model. Happened last year.

Be aware of potentially dangerous wiring! This is the 30 amp cable entry junction box.
