Electrical problem

I have a 1997 monaco dynasty. I got zapped with a high voltage hook-up. I have a electric panel beside the main breaker panel in the bedroom.
This panel has 4 relays that control the switching beetween the 110 vold ac and the dc I think. These relays are labeled on the schmetic as 110 volt relays. The breaker to the circuit that powers all the 110 outlets will not reset.. Cannot find a source for these relays. Any help would be welcomed... Any other suggestions or comments welcomed..Woody

Where did you get 'zapped'? Plug, skin, other?

I think he means he plugged into a dryer/welder/air compressor/other "30 amp" outlet.

Without a wiring diagram of the coach to look at, it is a little difficult to help however

1) Do you have 30 amp or 50 amp shore power service?
2) Do you have an auto transfer switch (might be the relays you are reffering to.
3) Does the 2nd panel just have relays with no circuit breakers? If so does it have a P/N on it like ES50?
4) Do you have a Trace (or other model) Inverter that is the feed for the 2nd electric panel you reffered to.
5) If the 2nd panel does have circuit breakers in it, is it feed from an Inverter?

Note: My questions are in relation to pdf page 50 of a 2003 Dynasty wiring diagram (http://www.monacocoach.com/StaticFil...nasty03_WD.pdf) I am looking at in the hope it is simular to yours.

For your own safety, I'd suggest you have someone who understands electrical systems and components looking over your shoulder, literally, before you go digging.

50 amp service..Yes auto transfer switch by ESSO..located in bay by inverter.
This panel only has relays..the breacker is next to it.
Cannot see a part #. the schmedic in book shows it as a 110 volt relay.
Have Freedom inverter.
2nd pannel seems to be feed by breaker box.

There are 100's of relays and breakers in the market. For anyone to be able to help you, you are going to have to provide more details about the components you are looking.

The relays together form the auto transfer switch that shifts the 120vac power between generator and shore power. The relays themselves are standard electrical components, so a replacement should be readily available. You just need to determine the voltage and amp rating of the relays and shop for an equivalent item. They are widely available in electrical supply houses, stores such as Grainger, etc.

If in doubt, you can replace the entire transfer switch and get 4 new relays as part of the deal. Here is one source:
