Can’t believe anyone would want to pull front cap to replace that wiring from junction box to battery compartment. About an hour job tops

I’d say you developed a short to ground up at the junction box that just drew current till weakest link... wire ... melted in half
Your suspicion is entirely possible. Alternatively, someone pulled the pin on the breakaway switch (accidentally or intentionally) and the weakest link, the wiring, finally melted. When the dealership found it, they put the pin back in and called with the bad news, saw an opportunity to make a bundle and ........

I think thats what I have going on, a short some how, or pin pull.

Ill get it home and pull stuff apart and take pics for your input. Might be a few weeks.

Pin box was sent wrong. They sent the wrong ram for slides. With the nearly 3 feet of snow finally melting they are getting back to work.

Thanks all!

I did feel super sorry for the tech. I guess both hydraulic rams were blown and the whole under belly was soaked. He took an oil bath. Said he took 2 showers.

The plast was shot, as well as all the insulation. Both are getting replaced.

The poor tech was going over what was needing to be done and the service writer girl was just getting madder and madder as he spoke. I can tell they are over charging or billing Keystone for the hours worked.
