We need your info on shore power connector meltdowns
Mike Zimmerman (from the RVelectricity Facebook group) and I are trying to determine the frequency and cause of burned and melted shore power connections on either the pedestal (TT-30) or RV (L5-30) connectors for shore power hookups.
If you’ve had any of your 30-amp shore power connectors or adapters melt or burn up and still have pictures, please email them to email@example.com with the subject “30-amp” for analysis.
50-amp survey will be next week
We’ll do a similar survey next week for 50-amp shore power connectors. So let’s stick with 30-amp connector failures for this poll, please.
Please leave comments below
Feel free to leave any comments about what you’ve experienced with melted shore power connections below.
Thanks for your help, everyone.
Let’s play safe out there….
