After a cold dinner, the next morning, I found that the microwave was not plugged in and proceed to unscrew and remove it to retrieve the cord! It was later on that same morning that I went to come back into the TT (in bare feet) to get some more coffee that I found that the skin was hot. It about knocked me on my a--! I then called our dealer and his only answer was to bring it back. Oh boy that would have been a three hour drive. So we cut our vacation short and went home (only a two hour drive).
We checked our unit while not plugged into shore power. If the ground was not connected, lights, radio etc would not operate. Then we plugged into shore power, checking refrig, microwave, AC etc on shore power. While on 12 volt only ran furnace, refrig on propane. Guess experience helps, this was not our first RV, and we knew what to look for. Yes hot metal is not easy to detect but, I did plug meters into outlets and did a meter check on the frame. Even remembered to check for propane flow to rear quick disconnect.
The tech really had it easy because he did little, I used my check list and did the tests I needed too. Since we picked it up in Middlebury Indiana, we also spent two nights at a local campground so we could check it in "real world situations". I was happy to say everything worked as expected. Few minor "problems" ie, table base not screwed tight, bench was not in alignment so I moved the frame and put it back together (10 minute job). I expect some things to need "adjustment" but I also expect major things to work.
Glad the issue with hot skin was taken care of, and I'm sure many others were made aware of the potential life threatening situation.
Happy it was only a cold meal, bet you will check the MW on your next RV! LOL Happy Camping
