Automatic Transfer Switch (Power Switch)
After recently arriving home from a long trip, I was running the generator with both A/Cs on and it suddenly stopped providing electricity to our motor home. (The generator problem is another subject.) As the A/Cs went off, I heard a chattering sound. I initially thought the generator motor was dying, but realized it was still running, but not providing power to the MH. So I killed the generator.
Then I plugged in to shore power and still got no electricity, so I checked all the breakers, including those in my garage and none had blown. Then I noticed I was getting electricity to the built-in surge protector but none beyond it. Then I assumed that the auto transfer switch wasn't switching.
I disconnected the land line, turned off all electrical appliances and started the generator again. I was getting power, but it was only up to about 100 volts with no appliances on. I turned off the generator and plugged back in to shore power. Again, the surge protector showed it was getting electricity, but not beyond it. I left the MH plugged in to shore power and this morning (the 4th day) we had electricity. Undoubtly, the auto transfer switched over to shore power.
Has anyone out there had this type of problem with their transfer switch that could give me advice?
