2021 Generator Wiring

I was doing an inspection and found something hanging down under the coach. Upon inspection I found a damaged wiring conduit.

Damaged Conduit

The damage was caused by the exhaust from the generator. The conduit is the wiring from the generator to the coach. the wiring fastener that was installed by Thor broke and the conduit fell down on the exhaust.

I did an inspection of each damaged point and found no damage to the actual wire.

I did a repair by taping each melted point and bought a larger conduit and split it down the middle and placed it over the both melted points and taped it up using duct tape. I reworked the method of holding the conduit to the coach. Problem solved.

2021 Texas Arctic Blast

During the February arctic blast in Texas we reached -3. This temp is not good for an Outlaw RV. We had some freeze up of 3 areas.

The water tank froze. It thawed without any issues.

Second was the Shurflo for the water pump. The plastic base broke due to freezing. See the Photos below:

The replacement part is shown below: you cannot buy the plastic base.

The second part to break was the water filter housing.

I had to purchase a full replacement kit as the individual parts were very hard to get due to the Freeze.

The RV had the heat on and the Shurflo for the water pump and the water filter both froze and broke.

Advice for the future is to place a heat source in the water filter area and by the actual water tank.
