Wow- that gremlin hasn't bitten me yet. I guess we'll have to crack open the front end of Bella Vita at RATS and see where the little bugger is. I've never seen one of the little breakers larger than 50 amps.

For a second I thought you want to create an electric furnace. But then I saw Randy's note more... and that shows the correct fix, like you post showed. I wonder just who wired these coaches? I mean, 50 amp and 105 amp, the wiring involved, who put these together? Did the builders maybe mixed up 105 amp with 50 amp also? Like you have a # 6 wire run with a 105 amp breaker? (I think a 105 amp breaker has a # 000 or 0000 wire on it). Scary.
I am glad that the guys on this forum share info and observations.

Symptom described in the recall notice sounds familiar.

Two years ago, Lisa and I drove to Shane's rally in Hershey PA. This had been our longest trip to date and we were very very green. Had planned to be there before dark but it was about 9:00PM when we pulled into town and proceeded to get lost. It was very dark and we took a wrong turn into the country side and the headlights just quit on a narrow bridge! We were pretty spooked and tired. Fortunately, there was a shoulder to pull off on just over the bridge. Pulled over, turned her off and waited five minutes. Had the lights back when we started her up again. Got Shane on the phone and he talked us in. That weekend, we did the headlight mod with the relays and so far, so good.

I'd say this recall is a GREAT reason to do the headlight mod and move them to their own circuit. How in the world did somebody come up with replacing a 50A with a 105A and consider it safe??? People will only end up with fried wires or worse.
