Shocking time in the closet.
I started up again on the re-plumb of my coach this morning, after a little vacation time.
I took out all the wood work and shelves in the closet with the Splendid 2000 and was in the process of pulling the washer out far enough to get behind it to install the PEX and quick connector fittings and faucets.

While moving it I pivoted the back end up and it touched a metal outlet box with a ground fault plug in it and it ARCHED!

I checked the metal box with a tester and it’s HOT on the outside.

It will show hot touching the washer unplugged and grounded to the ground for the electric outlet for the washer.

The wiring inside the box shows no signs of arching and it is ground as well.

Need troubleshooting help on this one, electric isn’t my strong suit so let’s hear what needs to be done to run this dangerous situation down without me getting zapped!

What type of outlet is the bus plugged into? A 4 wire 50a or something else?

You say the "hot electrical box" is a GFI outlet "Correct"??? If true then (SWAG) it is probably failing:
-REMOVE power to the coach, use a flashlight
-REMOVE outlet assembly from "hot box" CAP off the 3 wires in the "HOT
BOX" so they DO NOT touch
- Power up the coach, then do your box to ground test again like in the last
picture
ALL GOOD??? if yes, POWER DOWN coach, get new GFI outlet at the hardware store, reinstall.....mark wires when you remove in step above so you know how to rewire........ reassemble box, make sure nothing touches.....power back and do your last test again....... Good Luck
PS above test no GOOD? then other SWAG...you got a wiring short and a gonna have to try and find it with power removed and using your OHM meter.

Hey Kurt,

I'm with Pete on the suggestions. Sounds like ,maybe the hot wire may have been making contact with the metal box. I'm no electrician but, why would anyone house a switch, or outlet in a metal box. Most are in plastic aren't they? I can see where the use of the metal box for tying in wires that are capped off ... but switches with exposed wires as your pictures show!
