I agree, Tunce, but I don't plan to do any repairs while it is under warranty so my verification will have to wait.

By the way, my wife's brother and his wife live in Bellingham - beautiful place.

Your 100% right. They are not all home runs one continuous piece of wire. However the outlets are not screw connections either they are knife connections (for lack of a better term) similar to the 12volt splice connections and they are a b...ch to pull apart.

I have (8) 15 amp outlets in my TT inc. My outside outlet but I only have 3 circuits in my panel box for them. Take your cover panel off and count them to be sure. It's a good idea to know what lines go to what outlets.


We really like Bellingham but the rain is a little much. I live off Euclid and next to Lake .

Yeah, you can see in this photo that there is only one black wire going into each breaker so they are not home runs unless there is a sub-panel behind the main panel. Actually there may be because the tech said they had to remove the inverter/converter to access the connections.

Her brother & his wife live on 16th Street.

16th st.is a great location, you can walk into town. There's always something going on,great college town and it keeps us young. Lots of good evening places to hangout in in winter and in spring into late fall many outside places.

No hidden sub-panel. That's against code. The converter and panel are an integral unit, but usually no reason to remove it except to access the extra slack in the wiring.

As we were checking each outlet after the repairs, I asked the tech if all of the outlets on that circuit are daisy chained with pigtails. He said, no, they are all home runs back to the power panel. That surprised me but I'm glad they are because I now know there are no connections in each run that may come loose from the vibrations while traveling.

Homer, I don't understand your post. Are you complaining about my post? If so, please explain in plain English.

Thanks,

Ken

Okay, I think I now understand that you are complaining about Jayco's advertising and their quality (or lack thereof) control. Right?
