RE: melting plug

I went to Smartplug website. I saw nothing indicating Coast Guard, NEMA, UL or NEC approval. http://www.emekmarin.com/e/product/smartplug-systems https://smartplug.com/resources/faq/

RE: melting plug

Why is this "new" plug better than the current standard for RV's? Does it have greater surface area on the female contacts? Some reading on Smart Plus: https://marinehowto.com/shore-power-cords-smartplug-vs-1938/ While on our communities harbor committee(325 slip marina) we had Smartplug do a presentation when they were first getting started. Marina fires really do happen. I was involved in this one. https://i.imgur.com/ImG71aml.jpg I grabbed a couple other harbor committee members and we first put in this small cigar boom to capture small debris, when the fire fighters were done we put a large containment boom around the complete scene. https://i.imgur.com/6xg0bzwl.jpg

RE: melting plug

It will be a very long time for the "Smart Plug" be approved by NEMA. 1938 NEMA 30 amp twist lock. https://i.imgur.com/EML7bxkl.jpg

RE: melting plug

It's sad but the industry's NEMA TT30R/P design is really under engineered IMHO. Many decades ago when it was created, there were no electric water heaters (in RV's) or micros, TV's, large battery chargers, etc. Just some lights and the occasional space heater. Then add in poor quality, off shore parts and it only gets worse. We use a lot more of the capacity if these "trailer" circuits now and while they work OK when everything is perfect, they don't like running a constant load at anywhere close to their 30A rating. It's too bad we can't switch over to the marine undustrys 30A receptacle for pedestals. It seems to hold up better. The 30A twist lock used in marinas is worst than the RV 30. It is a 80 or 90 year old hospital design and routinely causes marina fires. This is the new plug for marinas, however it would take years to convert everybody. https://www.westmarine.com/buy/smartplug--combo-inlet-connector-30a-125v-white--17415258?&mrkgcl=481&mrkgadid=3202694706&cm_mmc=PS-_-Google-_-GSC%3ENonB%3EProduct%2520Type-_-17415258&product_id=17415258&creative=108421552324&device=c&matchtype=&network=g&lid=92700049310972060&ds_s_kwgid=58700005416296602&ds_e_product_group_id=301382160878&ds_e_product_store_id=&ds_e_ad_type=pla&ds_s_inventory_feed_id=97700000007545409&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIt-323veQ5wIVEf5kCh3GfQzyEAQYAiABEgK1FPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

RE: melting plug

in the past 14 months i have had to replace the 30A plug that plugs into the rv parks box at least 3 times because 1 of the prongs overheats and melts my plug. need ideas on what might be the cause OP has not been back in like 8 days, if same park, bad pedestal outlet. Different parks likely too much draw. How do you draw too much without tripping the parks breaker?

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Luxury would include a rear cap! I would put them right there with the Solitude by GD. Close but no cigar.

RE: Auto slider or manual

spud1957 Pullrite and B&W do not have auto sliders for the 2020 chvey YET. They are working on it, but no timeline. He does not have the hitch pucks as stated in his other closed thread. And as I have said in both threads, that should be his first step to install them and have someone install them. I installed the OEM ones in our 2015 RAM. The bed had to be raise one side at a time to drop them in the frame saddles. Took 4 hours including the 7 pin outlet in the bed, working by myself. With two people it would have gone much faster.

RE: Auto slider or manual

As I said in the other thread. First install the pucks or have someone install them for you. Then get the puck mounted hitch of your choice.

RE: 2020 Chevy new bed length & auto slider

RE: New truck batteries

Not due for batteries on the 2016 yet, but when the 2001 needed batteries I chose to get from the local Ram dealer OEM as many were reporting getting 7+ years out of them. I will see when the current OEM's start to fail. I replaced the batteries 9/29/2012 at 253,050 miles, I sold it 6/30/2019 at 315,000 miles. During the last six months the truck would set for a month between starts, fired up every time. My Son and I ordered our 15's and received them 2/15. Around 2/19 he replaced his batteries they were failing and causing electronic issues. I replaced mine at 4.5 years because I wanted to replace them when "I" wanted to. Many are only getting 4-5 years on the newer RAM batteries. Mine failed at 4 years of service. Truck was built 4 years and 9-10 months earlier.

RE: Bent Kingpin?

Like many others he will find broken beams and structure, and some welds that let go. From OP profile trailer is 2010 Keystone Cougar 244RLS(I now see that he had that in his original post), so I would be surprised if Lippert helps him. 10 year old trailer looking at 4-5K repair. And it is 400 away, and he is paying storage. Not good! Chris

RE: FIC entry lock problems

I would go buy a replacement unit. https://www.amazon.com/Travel-Trailer-Entry-Paddle-Deadbolt/dp/B0787DZDHT/ref=pd_sbs_60_t_1/137-0545791-3227819?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B0787DZDHT&pd_rd_r=97c78656-c20e-46b3-874e-5ed4eb5a4cd9&pd_rd_w=kwrHF&pd_rd_wg=ahF3A&pf_rd_p=5cfcfe89-300f-47d2-b1ad-a4e27203a02a&pf_rd_r=JAJZ484X87MEPD2NSEP1&psc=1&refRID=JAJZ484X87MEPD2NSEP1 And study how it works before attacking the one on the trailer door. The lock in the movable handle is not the best way to lock you rig BTW. The other lock is the dead bolt, which works only with your key. The lock on the movable handle works with universal master keys that dealers have. Study how the new one works might give you a clue how to best destroy the one on the door so that you can get in. You also might try again with your key holding pressure up or down(one direction or the other) on the key as you turn it. I believe if I remember correctly, that the key slot is horizontal when locked and vertical when unlocked. Have you tried pushing in on the door with the key slot vertical, while trying to open the door. Maybe the latch is just under pressure on the striking plate on the door jam. Chris

RE: melting plug

Have you checked the rig itself to see if it is "Hot"? You may have some sort of short that is drawing excessive power. Excessive power trips circuit breakers. Bad/worn out receptacles on power pedestals causes power cord ends plugged into them to over heat and burn up.

RE: Plug in truck bed or use plug in bumper for 5th wheel

Hi All, My 2016 Dodge truck came with a plug in the bed and one on the bumper. I use the in bed one for the 5th wheel because it keep the electrical cord from coming loose. Jim2007 How did you get a 201 Dodge Diesel, they quit making them in 2008 and removed all labels that said Dodge in 2011 or so.

RE: just saw my 1st 2020 F-350's

I went and looked at the 2020 Super Duty's a couple of weeks ago. I've been talking to myself to resist the urge to go back to look at a two tone King Ranch I saw when driving by. Just do it! You can not take the money with you at the EOL. Chris
