Is your Trombetta hot to the touch?

Mine sure is. Just curious.

Trombetta is a continuous pick relay and yes you will burn your hand if you touch it.

The relay in my BIRD system is hot and I'm considering re-mounting it isolated from the carpeted compartment wall. I'm also monitoring the temp. in the power bay, and considering some kind of controlled, power vent system.
Another project. Yes Dear , I am spending more $$ on the coach.

Makes you wonder how many DC amps it takes to heat and keep the relay that hot???....Lots of good reading on this forum regarding the potential "issues" with the way the Vansco comm system interacts with this relay to keep your bats charged.

It depends on what kind of mood she is in if her Trombetta is hot or not.

A trombetta sounds like a small trombone.
