RE: Electric brakes

I would suggest you go back and solder those wires and shrink wrap. Actually, crimp connectors with heat-shrink sleeves is the preferred method of connecting wires where vibration is present. Since solder creates a stiff section in the stranded wire, the wire tends to break right next to the solder joint. Solder connections on wires in vehicles are just not reliable. You might notice that there are no solder connection on cars: they're all crimp connections. In fact on aircraft, solder connections are completely forbidden.

RE: Dometic Mother Board

I installed a Dinosaur board in my Dometic refrigerator, but it was a different model than yours. The Dinosaur board was clearly superior to the OEM Dometic board in component selection and design. Maybe they have a replacement for your Dometic board.

RE: Need help finding an interior wall outlet...

Screw-type terminals where you wrap a wire around a screw are not appropriate for a vibration environment, such as in an RV. You need to use clamp style, spring style (also called back-stab), or the original punch-down style used in self-contained devices. Also, installing self-contained devices is much easier with a special tool for the job. For a single outlet, it will probably be cheaper to just have a professional do it. Many will claim that household devices are superior to self-contained devices, but that's not really verifiable. Both are usually certified by UL and CCA (check for that) and both are allowed by the US National Electric Code.
