If the new type shut down with a pipe or hose break, are we in fact living with old info and scares ? I do close one tank (just in case), but see no real reason not to cool the refer with gas. Do I observe proper care with flames and fumes, you bet.

almost burnt down

My trailer almost burnt Friday night.

Have a 2013 Eagle 32foot, can't remember the model number. Dual slide outside rear kitchen.

Got back from pool at campground Friday night to find the trailer dark and full of toxic smoke, got the dogs out and found the shoreline plug smoking and melting where it screws on to the connection.

30 amp power from pole and only AC was running.

Not a happy camper, pun intended.

Will see what the dealer has to say today.

I will say no, because I am not sure what an EMS is.

If it's a surge protector they are built in to the pole at my campground.

I have the trailer in a seasonal spot, same place its been for a year now.

It's a system to protect your camper. Make sure you let the CG office know what happened just in case. Have them check their surge protector and make sure it's working properly and get their names. If it is and they've had no other complaints, it may be your camper or power cord. Sounds like it's on their end though.

For the future, invest in a electrical management system..regardless of THEIR protection. It would've prevented this.

when I pulled mine out all the way, I wrapped some tape around the end so I knew when it was completely out...

Talked to the office already, they have had no complaints and there are 2 electricians that stay at the campground that I spoke with.
They both say the camper was pulling too much power and that's why the wire shorted out.

Low Voltage under a load will cause overheating of electrical components too. It doesn't have to be an overload situation or faulty wiring. The campground may not have sufficient power for amount being used.

Talked to my dealer....

They want to see the trailer to decide if its a warranty issue, understandable.

They quoted me almost $500 just for a new shoreline cord and receptacle.

Trailer is about 2hrs away from the dealer in a permanent seasonal site.

I might just get the mobile RV repair guy to fix it and not take to the dealer.

Any thoughts??
