Transfer Relay Location 2008 Bounder 35E

I am thinking that our transfer relay is malfuntioning as we are getting full service in the rig from our gen/set, but only service to the back half of the coach when on 50 amp service. All breakers and fuses are good. So for testing, I really need the location of this relay assembly. Help locating this unit would be appreciated.

Your transfer switch is under the drawers below the emergency window in the bedroom.

I'd agree w/Cliff since he's got the same make & model you do.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Turns out that the park 50 amp service at the pedistal had 120 volts on the nuetral. Changed sites and all is now working correctly except my Microwave is fried, and a surge protector won't reset. I guess it saved my laptop.

And I did find the transfer relay; thanks to all.

It is your basic 6 or 8 plug Belkin (spelling) with the protection on the end for telephone etc. It was working prior to arrival, but will not reset. It is guarenteed, but who thinks to keep receipts for thoses smaller items. Sure has been nice to have our power back for a whole day. Thanks for help.

I'm sorry to tell you that what you have is a small appliance protection at best. This is what I and a lot of other members here have.

This is how I installed it in the basement.

I went with the portable one for a few reasons. Mainly because of where our transfer switch is makes it impossible to install the hard wired model and service it if need be. These units not only protect the whole MH from surges , they also monitor the power coming in and will not allow any if the source you're connecting to is mis wired or below 104 volts or above 132 volts thus protecting all of your electric equipment. Your microwave would be alive today if you had one. There are many threads here discussing the importance of these units. This particular Co. offers a lifetime warranty.

Maybe I didn't explain it right; the surge protector is not for the whole coach, which is now on my to-do list but is just for protecting my laptop. .it won't reset now, but I guess it did it's job as I still have a laptop.
