I just brought home my 77 13' scamp and as I was washing out the interior my home circuit breaker tripped. I reset the breaker and went back to cleaning only to turn around and see a small fire! The wiring was run behind a metal trim piece from the sink cabinet to the closet across from it.n front of the rise of the table . Over the years it had rubbed through to the wires exposing it to overheating and the moisture set off the fire. I recommend if you have one of these trailers to check for this hazard. I will try to show pics of the affected area. Clint
