B-W Power Center Series 6300A model 3420
« on: May 31, 2010, 09:54:51 PM »
Hi all,
I have a 33 foot 1988 Mallard travel trailer with a B-W power center.  It is the 6300 A Series Model Number 3420.   We are in a permanent spot.  Recently the lights stopped working and then we started experiencing  a variety of issues.  Number one, parts of the campers exterior become electrified.  Never the same part twice and no pattern to it.  2. We are also blowing the breaker at our power source at the campground.  We checked for shorts and found an issue where the radio was hard wired.  We fixed that and all was well until today.  Now it is happening all over again.  Anyone have any ideas of what we can do?

If the metal on the trailer is electrified, then the hot and neutral are reversed somewhere.  That is a very dangerous situation and I would disconnect from shore power until an electrician can find and fix the problem.  The radio should have nothing to do with what your experiencing.

Sounds like the hot wire from the campsite feed is shorting to the trailer, which electrifies the trailer body/chassis and will trip the campsite breaker if something (like your body!) manages to complete a circuit from the trailer body to the ground. Extremely dangerous, so disconnect at once.

It's not the radio - that's a 12v power itiem.
