2000 cc Intrigue

Can anyone tell me where the transfer switch is located on the 2000 Intrigue motorhome?

The surge protector is in the cabinet over the bed behind the breaker panel.

I believe that is where I hear the "thunk" when I plug the coach in.

If anyone has a picture of the switch I'd really appreciate it if you could send me a copy.

Thanks so very much

On my 2000 intrigue intrigue you enter through the storage above the bed on the right to access behind the electric panel. I have a clear piece of plastic that is removable. You have to be a contortionist to work back there. I just upgraded my 22 year old surge protector. Decided to pay somebody to do the work that appeared to be relatively easy but it sure was not because of the location.

Transfer switch

found it right above the surge protector.
Right where you said it would be.


wondering if I should have both the transfer switch and the surge protector replaced. They are going on 23 years old???

Pro's: You could get a BluTooth option Surge Protector, that you can easily see the status of the power coming in from Shore Power; The ATS, has mechanical contacts (THUNK) lugs, that can deteriorate and cause ATS failure. So it is a 'wear item'.

Con's If it ain't broke... ; Costs;

One other consideration, IF you have room in the space (We did in our 04 Allure, and also for out 07 Magna.) to add a Hughes Autoformer... You could use that as both the EMS and get the Stepped Up Power when in low voltage situations. The new Hughes have modularized EMS components. So it it takes 'hit' during a power surge (As EMS's are designed and supposed to do.), you now do not need to replace the full Hughes Autoformer, just that module gets replaced.

One thing I did not like on where CC mounted the TRC SurgeGuard in our Allure, was you had to stick your head in the closet, and try to peak in thru a plastic access cover, to see the health of your Shore Power via the Idiot Lights. So having the Bluetooth option, was worth it to me to make modifications....

No right or wrong! Just choices...

Best to you,
