Pulled wire appear to have a small connector which almost appears to be a snap like head. It is not obvious where this connection is made internal to the mat. Anyone with experience on these products and knows if this is repairable? If not, I guess my only option is to replace it. Let me know who manufactures these mats or where I can purchase a replacement.
Thanks in advance.
Try to make a very small slit to get access to the wiring. The connector you are describing sounds like a button connector, similar to a 9V battery. If that is it, snap it in place and reaseal the slit with an approriate sealant for the outer cover.
If it's not a button connector, a small solder job may fix it. I have no faith in anything electrical built for the RV industry or installed by the industry. I have found so many wiring deficiencies,
that would be in contravention of the Canadian Electrical code, if it was a stick built house it would have been condemed. Poor wirenut connections, pulled apart crimps.
