I was looking for a suitable location to mount my Progressive Industries EMS and when I located the junction box it was directly below the feed valve for my water heater. It is so close that you can not even turn the valve making it useless.

I will be eliminating the box with the EMS anyway, but it made me wonder what they were thinking when they designed and or built this camper.
hmmm, I wonder what the response would be if you called Jayco, while you had them on the phone, sent the photo I really would like to know what response they give you for something stupid like that?

Seems like any worker there would need to be a camper also. The location of that box could be moved a foot or so at the installers discretion if he knew the problems it could cause.

I bet they would say they will cover the repair under warranty. Then you will have to call your dealer to make an appointment 4 weeks out. Once you arrive 4 weeks later it will take 3-5 days, at the least, for them to look at it. Then another week for the "repair". Then you can have your trailer back. LOL

This is my plan. I don't expect much but I do want to hear what they have to say. I'm sure it will be along the lines of bring it in to a dealer and we will move the box. We all know how that will turn out, 6 weeks later I may see my camper again. Its an easy fix, it just boggled my mind that someone would find that an acceptable location for an electric box...

I've turned wrenches my entire life as both a second job and as a hobbyist. I've seen designs in vehicles that were plain stupid and couldn't be fixed. At least this one is easy...

It's not just Trailers, a friend once had a small Chevy with a V6 where you had to lift the motor to change the rear two spark plugs!

I still have one of those. It is the 3600 series V6. 2000 Malibu. I managed to change the plugs once in 200k without tilting the motor. My hands and arms were really torn up. So I never changed them again.
