This is the testing procedure for the 50AMP and 30/20/15AMP setup per google search.

50AMP


30AMP & 15/20AMP


Hoping for the best for you..... Lots of expensive horror stories on here about being wired up wrong... A friend of a friend of a friend electrician is usually disastrous... Its not they don't know what they are doing, it is just the electricians are NOT expecting the RV trailers to be wired differently than a standard house circuit.

Just my thoughts

Roy,
Just trying to get the correct understanding of how a 50amp plug for an RV outlet is different than wiring a 50amp outlet for an electric stove.

The diagram you show for a 50amp outlet looks like the same I am familiar with for house wiring an electric range outlet?

What am I missing?

Best regards,
Doug

If you are happy then lets go camping!
For the record, the 5er was plugged into 2 separate 30 amps that were converted into the 50 amp at the Dealer. We did the inspection of every 110 volt option with no problems. The fixing Technician stated that it is something that can happen when you tow a house. No one to blame....it just can and did happen.

That explanation would not give me a warm fuzzy feeling about the problem but I am glad you got it fixed.
