Just thought I'd update you on a problem I encountered today with my new trailer.
As background, I have RV storage at my house, so it is always plugged into 15amp shore power when at home. I've also had it out the 2 previous weekends with no issues at all.
We pulled into our campsite this evening, set up, and plugged into the 30amp shore power. My wife noticed an electrical smell coming from near the converter. Didn't pay too much attention to it until we noticed smoke coming from the pantry above the converter. I took out a couple drawers, and determined the smoke was coming from the main junction box where shore power comes in ahead of the converter. It was smoking badly. I disconnected the shore power, and it stopped smoking. With shore power disconnected, I opened the junction box to find a number of wire nuts were melting away at wire connections. I'm not sure what caused this; I tested the shore power, and it was indeed only 30amps. I suspect something came loose in the junction box and shorted...
Anyway, luckily we were only an hour away from home, so we packed back up. Trailer is in the driveway; no shore power, and I'll be taking it back to the dealer in the morning. Annoying considering it was only week number 3 with the trailer
