Transfer Switch Replacement Recommendations?

I suspect I will be needing to replace my transfer switch before long, as mine is becoming unreliable, and randomly failing to transfer. It has done this 7-10 times in the last year or so.


Which leads to the question, do you have any specific suggestions on brands / models to buy / avoid?

Yes, my guess is the problem is in the logic board, it is an Intellitec brand 50 amp transfer switch, and of course no parts are available

A Google search of iRV2 posts indicates the Esco "Lyght" LPT50BRD ATS is a popular replacement.

Thanks I will keep it in mind, the layout on that one would work well for me, as I need one where inlet and outlet wiring come out the same side as to avoid major rewiring.
