I was just looking into this board from the BLUE SEA site which I was considering adding to couple of my position in my OFF-ROAD POUP trailer


Now BLUE SEA has come out with this version which has a ON-OFF RESET switch. Maybe those go bad when you draw more then the 1A or 2A rating so BLUE SEA added the RESET switch in their 4353 Model??? I know here in the house I plug in all kinds things to the USB ports... Even the FAN PANEL my LAPTOP uses the USB port to power the DC Fan...


I notice the also have a version that has a digital DC VOLTMETER installed... Caught my eye too...

I'd say Bondaddio's advice about checking for 12V on the wires on the back side of the outlet is spot on. That's where I would start. (as an aside, does the cig lighter outlet work?) Next, I would take apart the factory splices and redo them properly to ensure proper connection.

If I found out the wires were getting voltage, and the ports didn't work, I would replace the outlet myself with a higher quality unit. They're not that expensive (certainly less than the fuel to haul the trailer to and from the dealer, not to mention the time) and can be found readily all over the interwebz (I prefer Amazon).

I like the one Roy mentions above that includes the 12V monitor, but that would involve "additional holes" and my wife gets VERY nervous when I'm walking toward the trailer with my drill and bits! She thinks the trailer came with the perfect number of holes, I don't need to be adding any!

@ Camper bob

The 12v works I plugged a portable fan into it. I'm thinking they didn't wire it correctly when they spliced them together. I'm just going to buy a nicer outlet like the one posted above. Stinks that I've had this camper for less than two weeks and see so many flaws. They didn't even attach the cabinet door (headboard) to the Murphy bed. Found a couple screws on the ground. Two of the four window dressings that cover the blinds are mounted crooked. That will be my next project I guess. Can't stand looking at them now. They must have very little care for quality at Jayco.
Take care

My dual USB port under the kitchen counter top was DOA. Had 12v of power coming down the wire so no issue upstream. I took it apart and it looks like whoever soldered on the wires fried right through one of the microprocessors. My dealer is mailing me a replacement.

This raises a good point. Perhaps you could get Jayco or the dealer to mail you the replacement part and install it yourself. But then you get an OEM replacement. That might work though.

Yeah, a lot of people have little problems here and there with fit and finish, and I agree, it's frustrating. If you're handy enough to fix it and fix it right, sometimes it's better to just shake your head and do the fix yourself correctly. If there's enough wrong, and/or you're not handy, start making a "punch list" and get it all taken care of at one time with a trip to the dealer. Of course, that assumes you have a good dealer whose work you can trust. If not, you're probably better off doing it yourself, at least then you have some assurance it's done right.

Honestly, I didn't have too many of those problems with my trailer. A few screws here and there, and some other minor stuff. It was FAR easier for me to just fix it and move on than to depend on the dealer. I did have one major repair that I had my dealer take care of under warranty, and while it was there, I had him take care of a bunch of other stuff too.

X2 on this. My TT had some small crown molding installed above the slide that was done with two pieces. There was a gap of about 1/4" in between the two and they didn't line up. Looked pretty cheesy. Not a deal breaker but I purchased a similar single length from Home Depot, stained it to match, finished and installed it myself. Cheaper and done right instead of hauling the TT to the dealer.

I actually enjoy tinkering, adjusting, replacing and perfecting the trailer to my taste anyway. It's half the fun of ownership
