Thanks for the suggestion and the pic.

when i get a chance im going to go up to storage and see how much extra cable play i have and if i have enough i will probably just replace the plug on the cable just aft of the crimp.

JC says that the 7 pin connector cable that came with our AS is 12 feet long. there must be an extra six feet stuffed inside the a frame someplace because its not 12 feet from my bumper to the front of the trailer where the connector box is supposed to be.

Save that, will proably go with the temporary liquid rubber and electrical tape fix, then have the replacement done at some point.

In our 2008 International I see the junction box deep behind the "L" sofa. How do I get the sofa out of the way? That looks like a crazy job in itself.

That's a good question.

I've gone with the tape and be watchful approach. may do the proper fix the next time it gets below a hundred million degrees here in Texas.

we went camping and i forgot to look and see if there is an access panel on the L lounge or if i have to be a skinny contortionist to get to the access panel.
