Looks like a little mouse that didn't enjoy the hose it was eating. If so, very curious as to how it got in the line to eat its way out of the line.

If it is not, I guess you have allot of us guessing.

Good luck with the repair.

It's a burnt wire going through a gromet with a rivet next to it, maybe near an end cap.

Enjoy,

This was up there in the cabinet above right side. Now mounted on the wall below what will become the lower bunk bed.

It appears the lines were cut (3 of them) on assembly! What I don't understand is why the breakers never tripped or worst....a fire.

I have a suspicion that there was a repair done in that area at some time (I have no idea what....something on the outside) The rivets that are behind the wire are Olympic Rivets. They aren't used at the factory, but when a repair is done & a bucked rivet appearance is desired. Just a guess, since I can't see the outside of the rivets.

Glad there wasn't a fire too!!!
