On my Serenity the 50 Amp connection is by Marinco and looks like this:

So, did you install these 50 amp inlets yourself? What is the advantage to these?

The 50 Amp input is standard on the trailers with two A/C units. Single A/C trailers have a 30 Amp service.

As I understand it, the recall group was determined by manufacturing date only. Thus, a lot of folks will contact their dealer and be told no action is needed, or so I think. We will see tomorrow.

Is the factory 50 amp inlet made by Furion?

This recall only applies to inlets manufactured by Furion.

My 25' has a "Manufactured by" sticker that gives the VIN, axle and tire info as well as the month and year of manufacture. Mine is October 2013, so I'm in the clear.

I installed a new Furion 30 amp connector on my 1966 Trade Wind. I remember how "cheap" the fasteners were that are used to clamp the wire to the plug. But I'm sure I got the wires tight. I can see how you might apply torque to the screw and think your tight but not really. I believe I purchased it from VTS. It looked like a high quality piece.

I wonder if a guy could do a resistance check from the plug to the breaker box connections. You would expect very low resistance. But if it was 50 ohms or 500 ohms, it might indicate a poor connection. I guess I could do a infrared heat image of the plug while the AC is on. That would tell me if I had a hot spot. We did this yearly in the factory looking for trouble in the load centers.

Furion has a problem on their hands.

PS I have installed a 2024 T3 door on my new water heater. It ain't white any longer. I didn't want you to think bad things about me.

The 30 amp Furrion Square with LED can be bought for $40. Might be cheaper than a trip to the dealer.
