Never did find what I call an converter like what my Bounders have. There are two small "transfer boxes" one of which was at the shore power entrance, and the other was where the generator line came in. Maybe Thor uses these instead?????

The converter should have 2 wires (usually red and black) on one end with one or 2 fuses and a ground on the chassis. On the other end is a 120 volt plug sometimes plugged into the back of your 120 volt circuit breaker panel. I think you found it in the bedroom under the nightstand.

What Label does your black box under your hood have. Does it say "RV Custom Products" FW- ...

Those boxes are your transfer switches-they automatically transfer the 120vac coming in from the generator or the shore power depending on which has power (generator trumps all). The converter will be a lager heavy box with a internal fan/two thick wires and a ac cord.

That heavy box with the internal fan is the one I haven't located yet. Anyone know where it is on a '96 Hurricane? As for the black box under the hood I'll see what markings it has when I get back to my in-laws. Thanks.
