Hey friends,me again. Im working on rewiring my shasta. I didnt like the way it was from the factory,very flimsy stuff. I found some shallow boxes at lowes,but boy are those things limited on space. Any tricks or ideas on making this a bit easier.Also used 12-3 with ground,I know,I didnt think first and bought way to big of wire. Probably my biggest mistake.This total rebuild is getting tough.
I assume you came in and went out of the box?If so thats going too be a real challange.You could use Ideal 410 sta-cons on the joints and tape them,provided you use the proper tool too crimp them.This would come down on some space in the box.

Thanks for all the help. I took out most of the 12-3 wire and ran 14-2 with ground. This is installing much easier. The 12-3 that I left alone was for single circuts,like ac, fridge,and microwave. I didnt see any reason to redo those. Shasta24
Like others stated, I'd use normal size 14-3 wire for general 15A circuits. And, use thicker 12-3 for the 20A circuits (like AC, fridge). Since re-wiring the trailer, remember to "wire in" any optional inverter wiring, any optional 12 Volt wiring, any optional dish cable wiring, any optional Cat-5 UTP computer cable wiring, optional solar panel wiring, etc. etc.
Before "pulling in" new wire, make a diagram. Using a diagram, install any optional wiring you may need as well. For an example diagram, see below.
