    Jim,

    I've been looking at these for some time for another project involving a fountain. Does this box include a gland shaped for Romex?

      No it doesn't. Each box has two large and two small glands. The large gland was perfect for the round wire, and the small gland worked pretty well for the Romex. When compressed, it looks like it sealed the wire pretty good., Even so, I'd cover the Romex ends with silicone for added protection.

        Thanks so much Jim. I'll order the box's to replace the Molex connectors in my Imagine as well as one for the wife's fountain.

        I did run across these glands but they are listed as strain relief and not IP68, so I'm not sure they would be worth purchasing.

          Jim - If you haven't ordered the boxes for your Imagine yet, I'd hold off until next week. I sent a picture to Jerry to see if he approves of the application. I'll let you know.

            Ok Jim,

            I'll wait. I've struggled with this since I need a small box with an IP68 rating to make this type of connection in a very wet environment. The circuit is on a GFCI for the DW project.

              I wish I hadn't seen this post.

              As we're still waiting on our '21 2600RB to come in, I'm already dreading the possibility that the undercarriage will look like the images herein.

              Hopefully, Mr. Clark, et al will see the quality of work coming out of the factory and will strive to rectify the "craftsmanship" of his people.

                Hi Guys, my Molex are misbehaving. And when these go into the slide, how does it hook back up with the Romex, Eddie

                  You will find a second mollex connector inside the unit. They are on either end of the flexible cable.

                    TucsonJim Jim,

                    Did Jerry ever get back on a recommendation/approval? The project for the DW has ended since we moved, but the trailer is still a concern.

                      Actually, when I was at the Southern California rally earlier this year, GDRV inspected, photographed and approved my solution. The tech was quite impressed with the clean up.
