I called Jayco on my TT, the only recall is this fuse. Jayco sent me a letter by email and told me to call my dealer.

Did you see the links I posted? It is so easy to at least check if you need the update before wasting the fuel getting to the dealer.

Just installed my battery to check my 287 for the recall. Followed the Jayco TSB lights on, removed the fuse the lights went out. No update needed.

Just checked mine and the lights stayed on At least my dealer trusted me and went ahead and ordered the part without me having to bring it down. I'm torn because its such and easy fix to do myself, but since I still have a year left on my warranty and the worst case scenario is fire, I'd hate for them to blame me if the worst case scenario happened.

Tested mine yesterday and sure enough the lights stayed on. After reading through the recall instructions and parts needed Iím installing it myself rather than making a two hour trip to the dealer. Automotive 30 amp weather resistant circuit breaker, few connectors and some 10ga wire. The hard to find part of the kit is the circuit breaker cover. Delcity electrical has the cover for 89 cents but shipping is $16. Amazon wants $16 and $7 shipping for this little plastic cover. With a little more on google, believe it or not Walmart had it for $4.89 with free store pick up. Everything else can be sourced locally at the automotive store.

The only other small problem is finding a step down butt connector to go from 8ga to 10/12ga. if you have two wires at the positive battery terminal and want to follow the exact instructions. Delcity electrical has them but you have to buy a bag of 10 and again shipping is high. A way around this is to use a standard 8ga butt connector (easily sourced locally) and run 8ga wire instead of 10ga. or use the 10ga wire and fold over some to fill up the 8ga butt connector on that side to make a solid connection.

Not that I donít trust the dealer to install this simple fix but I would feel more confident if I did it myself. I can also put some heat shrink over the butt connector to seal it up and make for a cleaner installation. My background is electronics repair so Iím very comfortable with this fix.

I can't blame you for thinking that way at all. You know the dealer won't think twice to find a way out of warranty work. At least you know going in that you need it done.

Thanks for the info! I'm about to build a custom battery box and wondering if I can just add this marine circuit breaker inline between the batteries and and the trailer to achieve the 30 amp overcurrent protection?

That looks like a nice 30 amp breaker and being labeled for marine use it should work. I followed the Jayco recall instructions and used a standard automotive 30 amp breaker. I would still mount it in the designated location up and to the left of the 12VDC junction box.

I've used Bussman products before for different projects and have found them to be very relieable. I was thinking of mounting it to the battery box to avoid more holes in the frame but I suppose I should ask Jayco. I already have extra holes up there from the sway command and breaker for that

Personally when I saw the recall remedy from Jayco I was shocked that they consider this rats nest a correct repair. There was no way I was going to have my new trailer wiring looking like that! The rats nest picture is from their remedy guide.

I completed the repair myself and installed the correct breaker http://a.co/5Z4NAAW.

If you take the loom apart and route all the wires neatly there is not even a need to add any new wire at all.

My completed repair looks much better and is safer! When taking off the junction box cover the factory only put the 30 amp fuse holder inline between the tow vehicle 12 volt feed and the trailer 12 volt circuit. They put the trailer battery connection direct to the trailer feed.

Also when I was there all of the screws holding the loops that hold the loom were broken off! Not impressed.
