Thanks for publishing that document.

Not sure if this is right, But I assume that you got the lightening via a connection to your S&B. Maybe an RV park power pole. Not sure. But if it was connected to your house also, just want to be sure that you know that you can buy "industrial quality" whole house Surge Suppressors that either go in the meter box enclosure or go in inside of your main 100 - 200 amp circuit breaker box, and protect surges throughout the entire house from coming in the power mains. My house is all electric and I have two 200 amp 240 VAC input main cables coming to separate circuit breaker master boxes, and I have a whole house circuit breaker inserted in the sheet rock inside their own steel box enclosures right beside the main breaker boxes. If you are on an RV power pole, you can do it inside the meter section also.

Hope your damage is minimal, but it really can take out nearly all the electronics in your coach. Hope that your damage is limited. Good luck.

Gary

Alan any update on the relay replacement?

Also I crossed the relay still didn't make the Mercator come on, do you know if that's a correct way of checking the relay

Thanks
Mac

If you jumped the 2 terminals and got nothing, itís not the relay. Did you check the breaker?

This is what the relay looks like. It is located in the wet bay, hanging down loosely from above. It has 5 poles, marked 30, 85, 86, 87, 87a. To successfully jump the relay, you need to connect 30 to 87. The location for the circuit breaker depends on your year. Look at the manual that is posted above to find your breaker location. Mine is on the passenger side, back by the inverter shut offs, behind a panel.

Not to complicate things but not all relays are the same. You need a Bosch style, 30 to 40 amp relay that is normally closed(NC). I would first jump the terminals on the relay to confirm its failure.

Really, you got a ticket for being too long?! Iíve never heard that before! That really sucks and why just you? Iíd say the majority of rvíers with a 45 footer and a toad are over 65í!
