Transfer Delay Relay..

We are having a problem with this device.
We are not using any air con units. While on hookup the relay is clattering at odd times during day and night at times.

Has anyonehad this or can say why it has started doing it.
Also if we have to replace it, can we fit a 30amp in place of a 15amp.

We live in Uk so do you know a company who will ship at a reasnable cost.

Destination- you'll need to list at least what kind of RV to get specific recommendations on your part.

If the noise maker is the "transfer switch" that engages RV park "shore power" to your charger/converter/inverter, then the transfer switch is going bad and will need to be replaced. Its occasionally possible for a crafty fellow to replace just the contactor inside if the control board is functioning, but I'm guessing you don't know a great deal about electrical devices, so replacement of the whole assembly is more certain & safer. If its not the transfer switch, then you'll need to post some additional detail for a useful response.

For convenience, you can add a "signature" to your profile (see mine below this post) which appends automatically & folks know what kind of rig you have & what its components might be. Click on User CP and scroll down to populate your signature w/useful data.

Removing the box and checking it this week. If the relay can be changed instead of whole pcb then will look into that.

Asking the question as was wondering why it should do this when on shore power, as that is closed/off position.

Will put details on our Avatar also.

If it's chattering, it sounds like it's having a difficult time making a connection? If that's the case, wondering how hard it is to access these points, and maybe file them down/clean them up a bit?

We were ready for the off and unplugged from shore power. The clicking started again.
Checked in power locker and it is not the Delay Relay..

It is a Pcb which is part of the heater/aircon setup. As a temp measure we have switched power breaker off and switched aircon on. The unit has stopped clattering.
Taking this unit out this week to get full details from it. It still works as it should so may see if we can put a isolater in line as this is 12V supply.
