Ummmm....


Excuse me while I cringe!

I've been doing electrical repairs and upgrades in my own homes for years, but I would NEVER allow that mess in my life.

Oh, [expletive] is that what is going on behind the converter in my TT?!?!?!

"Junction Box" or "Junction block" would be where I'd start.

Yupe it is the way they arrive Men...

And you should open the belly of your trailer.. see how they mix up water line, 12 volts line, 110v lines it's a huge mess.

I just got a North Point and it's not really better

I've crawled und my TT already.


The wiring and plumbing ain't awful under there. It's a simple unit.


I'd like it better if there was some thought to protecting the tank level sensor wires...


Didja find them junk-shun boxes yet?

Wow thats a fire waiting to happen. It dumbfounds me how they don't have to follow national electrical codes, this would never pass an inspection.

Look here that's the 377RLBH...when I told you they mix everything up.

Inside the beast

It's crazy how the trailers don't have to respect the same code as in a house. For that it's true. We mix DC and AC and water together...

Agree that it is a mess but other than not cleaning up the excess wire [too long] what are the safety issues?

After pulling all the wires to this central point, an electrician will normally clip off the excess before connecting each wire. It makes for a neater set-up and sure makes chasing a specific circuit.

The only elec issue with my 2014 white hawk was in the connection box under the front tongue where all the wires from the pigtail and battery are connected to the wiring going inside the TT [suspect they terminate in the main converter box. The ground had vibrated loose and non of my trailer lights were working. Nice service manager in Montgomery Al put his tech on the problem and it was back on the road in less than an hour. Several ground wires were twisted together and secured by a twist on cap. The tech put ends on the ground wires and secured them to the back of the box with a self tapping screw. The rest of the wiring in that box is still a mess but no issues so I have left it alone.

Like Mike837go said, they're junction boxes or junction blocks. Home Depot or Lowes carries J boxes for 115VAC circuits.

Those one are some that just clip the cables in. No need for nuts.

Thanks
