transfer Switch Issues x4

Went and checked on our Seismic yesterday, been in shop since April. The tech knows this unit very well!

In passing he said I ordered another transfer switch? The one in it has failed again. This will be the fourth one that has gone south..................unit is now 14 months old and been in shop 9 months of the 14.

Anyone else had issues with transfer switches???

Are they wiring it wrong when they replace it? There haven't been any issues discussed about mass failures on JOF.

I'm almost sure JAYCO is using the same brand TS in all their units.

goes in the same way it comes out, works for awhile and then fails. I now carry one as a spare due to the ongoing issues. However it never gets out of the shop long enough to fail when using it.

X4, Just wondering are they saying how it is actually failing? I'm thinking loose connections, Intermittent low voltage or ect.???? I'd actually be checking input and output leads really closely in my opinion.

That is the same unit we have in our 2015 Pinnacle. I wonder if the factory mis-wired it and the same mistake is just being repeated when being replaced.

this is a mechanical switch, when power is supplied to shore side it supplies power to the panel. Voltage is 120V and when working energizes the contractor. The contractor fails if less than 105V. In this case the voltage has always been 120-`125V. The generator has never been running when shore power is on, however the switch is generator dominant. that said there is 20-30 second delay for switching.

According to Progressive Dynamics the switch wouldn't work at all if wired incorrectly. The control board I found out is made in China, that may be the problem
