A battery disconnect switch is located near the fridge cabinet area in the vehicles. According to the report, the switch terminal posts are “too close” to the cabinet’s metal frame. According to the NHTSA report, the posts can make contact with the frame, causing a short circuit and blowing a 100 amp fuse.
