Re: Power Outlet Sizzle - Help Please

MS, I looked at the Smart Plug. I suspect it would work well. It looks like it has a lot better seal than the old nema garbage. As for warm to the touch, define warm..... But I agree, hot or hot spots says something is heating up and that means problems. Often we find faults in lines have been failing for some time before they crap out entirely. Remember that in a marine environment the neut and the ground are of major importance. Burning out a lot of light bulbs? Look for a loose neutral. I'm actually looking forward to the day that the connector I change out is one on my boat. Fair winds.
