Hey guys take a look at this. I was pulling some panels apart a to troubleshoot my solar panels and I found my water pump next to a lot of electrical components, this cannot be safe ?

lol, then don't ever look in a ditch at the way half the world's utilities are run...

Seriously, you've got plumbing and electrical running next to each other, over each other, around each other all over your house. Out of sight, out of mind.

Looks like all 12 volts. No big deal.

Take a shower in my Uncle's basement and you will really wonder what is safe. Shower head is about 18" from the main electric panel and the soap dish is right next to it. You could throw the main breaker while you wash your hair. Been that way 50 years and nobody seems to think much of it.

The water pump doesn't concern me. But overall it doesn't look very orderly at all.
The way the jack controller rests loosely on some balled up wires doesn't look very reassuring.
What camper is that?

That pump doesn't look too bad, it's screwed in place so it's not going anywhere.

More concerning is that black controller box that doesn't look like it's mounted to anything at all so it's free to flop around, supported only by the wires.

And it's hard to tell from the picture if those terminals that plug into it are covered by clear plastic or if they are bare. But if they are bare, I'd put some electrical tape over them.

Don't look at the rats nest behind the converter, you might stroke out if you do. Why worry, don't you have an RVIA seal telling you how all plumbing, HVAC, and electrical along with fire safety is up to snuff? It is because they said so. What is the copper line? Propane?
