I will again admit to being all-thumbs on many RV mechanics, but I am very familiar with most all of the systems.  On numerous occasions, I have read where a swift knock, with the meaty part of one's fist, to the transfer switch will solve the issue.  I can attest to this being fact on one occasion.  My transfer switch received a swift knock by a "technician" and all was well.  I can only assume that the transfer switch is not a highly sensitive apparatus and the knock will do no damage.

Cheers...

Actually it is a fairly sophisticated latching contactor.  Which under some circumstances might benefit from a solid whack.  But there are other electronic parts in the box that might not appreciate that.  Just like Fonzie, knowing where and how hard to deliver that 'whack' is the secret. (exactly)

Update on electrical problem.   Took our Moho to Elkhart - refuse to let anyone else touch it!   Doug found that the outside hookup was the problem.   Fried wire of some kind. He said it was the first time heíd ever encountered that problem.  He said it could have been the campground hookup.  I remember our surge protector didnít show the green light it should have. Now Iím wondering if our surge protector was the problem.  I bought the cheapest one I could.  Checked it again and no response.  Iím spending much more on a new one. 

So happy electricity works.  I enjoy dry camping in wilderness.  However my husband is a resort campground person.  Glamping person!  (Thatís ďglamor campingĒ).

Thanks to Doug -  heís so dang smart and awesome!   I think he deserves a big raise!

I am starting to wonder if our 2350 has internet and is reading here...  roflol

Generator on and running, all was well. No propane, so running fridge and AC going down the road. .

AC compressor cycled, and *power gone* .   :beg Generator running, but no power. Shut down generator. Fridge off also.

Used shore power while we were parked.

Tried generator again when I got home... and it worked for a little while. Came back out to check...no power.

Gave a 'Fonzie' whack just under the fridge, above the fusebox. Power restored. Worked fine all last weekend, multiple on/off cycles.

Going to be going in to check things.  :cool

Happened to me!!!!   Please check the wire connections at both ends of your power cord!!!!  These do come loose and if such happens  must be rescued.  Don't be like me and get embarrassed at the repair facility.
