Looked inside my primary low-voltage junction xox for giggles....

Found this....(picture on the left)

This is a non-weatherproof box on the front of the TT frame which gets washed in run-off from the front of the camper and from TV tire spray, salt and grime while travelling. Because of the way the wires were placed into the box, water was guided down wires into the wire nuts which filled with water. The connections were already corroded and the wire nuts were rusting and starting to fail.

I found the same thing on mine. Like you, I turned the connectors over so they would not hold water. You would think the factory QC would be aware of something that simple to prevent problems. The time to do it right must eat into the profit margin.

Yup, think of it this way: do you want an umbrella or a bucket? Then orient the wire nuts accordingly.

It is a simple fix to be done at the factory. If they have warranty calls on it, then perhaps they would investigate and resolve the issue. I work for a sport/luxury car manufacturer, and the quality process never ends. If we have a warranty issue it is always investigated and every attempt made to be sure it is resolved in plant. I think that RV manufacturers could learn a lot from premium car manufacturers. its often the little things that hurt or help.

I opened mine up when I was having the battery issue (the 2 6 volts were connected wrong to each other by the dealer) and one of the marrets had wires falling out of it. Now I can't remember if I pu thtem back in the box the right way or not...

Much obliged,
Just about an hour trip to a sort of local KOA with full hook-ups to check out all of the systems...

I checked mine and it was ok, now I can sleep tonight without wondering if it was correct... the wife doesn't even question me anymore as I head out to the TT with tools in hand.
