Transfer Relay Delay

08 Southwind Intellitec Transfer Relay Delay 803-300. This box is under draws in bedroom, it got hot last night smelled like hot wires. The only thing we had running was a small fan. Seems fine but will be calling a repairman unless someone thinks it has a simple fix. The cable from shore power was the warm one but outside was fine.

Disco all shore power. Gen off and inverter off. Take cover off transfer switch and tighten every lug you can find. While you're at it do all lugs in the power distribution box too. Make it part of your annual maintenance. Loose connections make resistance which makes hot wires.

All fixed, yes one of the lugs was real loose so that wire had been Hot. Probably lucky it happen at night when we had no real load on it. First friend I talked to had the same thing happen to him so we bought some wire correct size and some new connectors . Fixed in an hour. Checked all connections while in box.

NOTE Many RVers have a few screws loose.

The ones you found and here is a list of ones I have found:

Circuit Breakers
Bus Bars
Inlet (Where the cord plugs into the side of your Motor home)
OUTLET (the one that plugs into the inlet.

Not all on the same RV but I am NOT an RV service tec so I do not see that many

Plugs if they are After Market

And now your Transfer Switch.

Why can they no tighten them down?

I like to use Loctite Blue or Green on those important electrical screws.

Works like a charm. Never have to go back and re-tighten.

They probably do. I learned a long time ago that freshly tightened connections can relax and become loose. Going back a day or two later is not practical in a production situation.
