RV Electrical Systems

Since the year 2000, the National Electrical Code has provided guidance for safe electrical wiring and equipment installations in Recreational Vehicles and RV parks.

The same electrical hazards are present for RVs and Campers that are present in traditional dwellings. Since many RVs are stored or not occupied for significant periods of time, there is potential for critters to make nests and homes in small spaces adjacent to electrical wiring or equipment. Also, water can present additional complications where circuitry, fixtures or outlets become unintentionally exposed to the elements. Cade Electric recommends that when signs of water leakage are present that RV owners take precautions by employing a qualified electrician to assess the potential hazards.
