No smoking – especially in shore power connections
Chris Dougherty, certified RV technician, received a letter from a reader while he was serving as RVtravel.com’s technical editor which began as follows: “A couple weekends ago, we were using close to the rated 30-amp draw on our trailer with fridge, water heater, periodic microwave, HVAC, etc., when my son suddenly told me that the power plug outside was smoking slightly. When I looked, sure enough, it was melting in the socket!” Read the rest of the letter and Chris’ response.
