Surge Guard 34830 plug replacement

Since the OP hasn't responded, we're all throwing dust into the wind, anyways.

I didn't respond because 1) I was not interested in experimenting, I just wanted to get power to my trailer, 2) I have been busy and not checked back into the forum until just now,  3) the TRC tech said the device would work for all the other functions and pass power without the blue wire connected to anything, 4) since the thermal disconnect did not prevent damage to the plug, I am not really concerned with restoring that feature. 5) there is so little wire available from the existing pigtail that I did not replace the plug but instead added a waterproof junction box to the bottom of the surge guard and connected the output wire directly to the cord for the trailer that has a 90 degree marine grade twist socket to attach to the trailer input thus eliminating one set of male/female connectors, and 6) since no one knew anything about what the blue wire was for, I expected the thread to die after posting that my problem was solved TRC tech specialist and was no longer following the thread.

I vote for that too. It would be a nice feature if it actually worked.

Traveler, you done good. I would have treated it the same way ESPECIALLY since you couldn't buy an exact replacement anyway. I still think the bigger (do have some open air space) after market plugs and receptacles dissipate heat better then the small tight no air flow molded originals.

Best wishes it was fun at least trying to help and we all learned something.

Thanks for the feedback

That's what happens when it's rainy. Thanks for coming back and updating us. It's all moot, anyway, as long as everything else is working.
