Exclamation 2020 Pinnacle Wiring Problems

So far we have been able to identify two major wiring issues.
First the electric side of the Dometic water heater is wired backward at the BmPro Rvgeniusnode, which is causing an overload situation.
Second the com. line from the "node" to the #2 slide out controller is either broken or burnt. There is no continuity to the line. This has caused the slide out to be stuck open.
I'm just putting this out as a PSA and am wondering if anyone else are having issues. Any discussion would be appreciated.

Pick up my NorthPoint 377 on the 20th, so very interested in this topic. It sounds like you’re capable of checking things out. How were you able to determine the Node was wired incorrectly? By chance do you have a picture of the node, I’m interested in how the generator connects. Finally, does the slide outs have a separate controller, thought they were directly wired in

Hi Nylyon, sorry I don’t know how to post a pic so this might be lengthy. The node is in the basement of the trailer. On it is a wiring description and we’re going to be dealing with channel 17 and 18. Channel 17 is orange and channel 18 is brown. The wires leading to 17 and 18 are just the the opposite. The orange wire is the lead to the gas side of the water heater while the brown is the electric side of the water heater. The Bmpro is showing in diagnostics that channel 18 has a overload. Well yeh its wired wrong, duh (sorry covid vent).

Oh, very interesting, to the node shows which wires should be connected. Good to know that, glad you found that too.

Question Bmpro

Here is the picture, I hope.
As you can see the wires going in and the color tape are in conflict. Then they contradicted by the white description.

Yes, I can see how that would be confusing to the person installing. Seems to me that the white description is the Jayco mapping, I assume this picture is after you corrected the wiring?

This diagram is great, I really appreciate you posting this, it helps me a lot.

nope, not yet, I am waiting on a email from Scott Hunter from Bmpro before I switch anything.

PS, I just noticed the gen connections (22, 23, 24) are just to the right of the water heater connections.

Probably a good plan to wait and hear back. I was really happy to see the generator inputs, will make putting in a genset easy to wire, or at least the controller, still need the transfer switch.

Went to pickup my 2020 Northpoint today, sadly it’s staying at the dealers to fix a few things. I had the chance to see the node wiring and it’s the same as your picture. I suspect that it’s wired correctly at the node.

Sorry to hear that but, take time to get it right. However in talking with tech 2 at jayco service they are telling me to have the dealer rewire to the node color code. Now i am more confused.

PS, the stuck slide out was due to a broken or burnt com. wire from the node to the hideout controller.

For reference, this is the node in the Northpoint wires 17 and 18, same as yours. Maybe check the wire at the heater side see which colors are which?

Well that’s one of my problems. I don’t have any space to reach the back of the water heater because the “node” is between me and the water heater. There is such a big wire loom that my grandson can’t even get in there. The only option is to pull the water heater from the outside. And I’m just gonna let the dealer deal with it.

Gotcha, I agree with that. Hopefully my dealer will get the problems with mine figured out, they’re going to deliver to my door when they do.
