RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

Thanks to all the members who replied on this issue. Such a wealth of knowledge and experience on this forum! I am going to go through the entire panel for loose and/or corroded wires, and will be cutting off and reattaching the burnt ends. I'll be monitoring this closely in the future to make sure it does not redevelop. Last thing we need is a fire in the trailer!

RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

Thanks to everyone. I'll clean the corrosion from the buss barr and wires and coat with electrical grease as suggested.

RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

Thanks all for the replies. Is an "ATS" the "transfer switch" ? Is that the switch that switches from DC to AC? Where might I find that in my travel trailer?

RE: Burnt wires in power distribution panel

QCMan - thanks for that comment. It had not crossed my mind as a possible cause. Think I will pull and the wires, clean them, and reattach to the block. Might avert a future problem.

Burnt wires in power distribution panel

While tracing the cause of an intermittent electrical failure in an electrical circuit in our ORV 21RBS, I discovered that all of the neutral wires in the power distribution panel were 'burnt" where they attached to the block. I pulled the wire for the problem circuit, cleaned it, reattached it and the problem was solved(fridge now works on AC). I am wondering if a power surge might have been the cause of the burnt wires. We did stay at a few campgrounds this past summer with power hookups. Any thoughts on possible causes? I am thinking about getting a surge protector after this incident, even though we mostly dry camp. Below is a link to a pic of the wires in question (well, I hope there is a link below, as I am new to this). "border=0" For Full-Size Image.
