Power transfer switch

Can anyone tell me the location of the power transfer switch in a Mobil Suites 5th wheel trailer?

Doesnít look like anyone got back to you. Iím sure there is a MS forum somewhere but I canít help you there. On my HitchHiker the transfer switch is up front on opposite side from batteries. I donít have a generator but have a front electrical receptacle so I can plug in the cord up front from either a generator or shore power. Is your trailer prewired for a generator or do you have a second receptacle? If not there may not be a transfer switch. Good luck.

Do you have a generator? Gen prep? Unless you do, there won't be a transfer switch.
Depending on the model/year, if you have the transfer switch, it should be located on the plywood panel that the furnace is sitting on which is on top of the grey water tank. Open the door side basement slider and look to rear of funace behind the Dirt Devil or whatever vacuum you have--the vac will need to come out to access the switch.

There is a very active DRV Facebook group that will probably help with the answer. You should join if own one.
