This is a schematic of a RV30A (M) to RV50A (F) ADAPTER. Note that the 50A TWO HOT WIRES are tied together to allow the SINGLE 30A HOT WIRE to feed both 50A ZONEs in the RV WIRING SETUP,


DRAWING FROM DMBRUSS

Both 120AC 50ANP ZONES will be fed a 30A ource to be hared with all 120VAC items. You will have to watch what is turned on at the same time otherwise you will be tripping the 30A SOURCE Circuit Breaker.

Wasn't there a snap cover over the back of the outlet? If the cover is missing that was the problem since the cover holds the wire in place to prevent such failures.

Wow. I hope the TT's made to Canadian Standards actually have real outlets in them. I will have to check mine when i get out to start doing my Mods.

I know a family that lost a child in a house fire due to a faulty outlet outside her bedroom. I wired my house with all spec grade outlets with the breaker style screw/clamp style connections and pigtailed all the connections so downstream current does not flow through upstream outlets. That picture of that outlet has me seriously considering changing out all the outlets in my rig and properly wiring them. Using push style connections is not good practice but is code MINIMUM but I don't trust something that is the absolute minimum acceptable wiring in a trailer that bounces down the road.

I found some Romex in my trailer wedged between a shelf and the wall of the trailer under the kitchen sink. Over time this could wear through and cause a short or worse. I just pulled it out but makes me wonder what else might be pinched elsewhere. Good thread to learn a lot about trailer wiring.

While I was installing the satellite feed in my 5th, I also added an electrical outlet to better support electronic gizmo's. I tied into an existing receptacle and discovered the push type connection. I replaced that outlet when I added the new one. I don't see the need to replace all of them, just upgrade them while you go along.
