Power Missing Update

Sooo,I finally figgered out that the problem might be the power switch as I had no power from the gennie and one leg of AC power. Went up to get the model number off of the Todd engineering switch and when I walked in to the coach and noticed that the lights on the Dish box and the TV were on, humm. this was kind of strange since they haven't worked since I got it out of the engine shop. I went around and checked every socket,fridge,tv water heater and EVERYTHING is working. Will wonders never cease.
I also found that the mirror closet doors have a self fastening thing so they don't open during a trip and two of the compartment doors that haven't latched, they don't come open on the road tho, are latching and the front step cover will work ocassionally now.
I'm thinking that when they lifted it up to replace the engine,these things fixed themselves.

I'd be more inclined to think , that during the engine replacement , the mechanic cleaned up a major ground cable mount and/or the cables on the batteries themselves.
BTW: Todd Engineering has gone out of business .

With the generator off and the coach un-plugged, just remove the cover for the transfer switch and tighten all of the wire lugs. It is very easy to do with a screwdriver. They vibrate loose over time.

Going to do that tomorrow. Left side power out now and the bathroom gif won't reset. I think that mebbee it got fried somehow. Oh, and it appears that the electronic controls for my satellite dish gave up too.
