Issue

On certain travel trailers, one inch plug-in circuit breakers (single & double pole 15 - 50 amps) may have a non-conforming "spring clip" plug-in assembly that breaks or fails to provide sufficient force to maintain a proper electrical connection in the panel board. Over time, this condition could lead to excessive temperature, arcing, or thermal damage at the connection point, and potential damage to the electrical insulation of the panel board. This could lead to a fire, property damage, or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will inspect and remove all affected breakers from the distribution panel, and replace them with new breakers.
