Just to get ultra-picayune about your thread title:


A/C = Air Conditioning
AC = Alternating Current


I'm pedantic that way...

Where would I find the transfer switch? I was lucky enough to get in touch with the demo guy at the dealership and I asked him the whereabouts of a transfer switch that was over an hour ago and I still haven't found it yet, he had told me it was under the bed or in a cabinet?

Mine is located in the basement behind a panel. Looking in the front side main access door there is a big removal panel on the left side, mine is in there. Make sure you remove power from your unit before messing with it unless you are VERY familiar with how they work. One of the relays is probably going to hot. I would bet the relay just didn't get pick good. Let us know what you find.

Sounds like you have a meter, and checked the voltage at the outlet. Personally, I would start by flipping off the main a/c breaker in the Pinnacle, then cycle the breaker feeding your outlet. Then flip on the main breaker in Pinnacle. If that does not give you power. Your Pinnacle has a twist lock plug connecting the cord to the camper. Disconnect it and meter across the terminals to ensure your cable is good. The dealership might have used one of theirs during the PDI. If you have power there, then it might be a loose wire connection behind the main panel. Personally, I would recommend pulling the panel out, and checking the terminals for tightness, there have been may comments over the years about loose wires back there.

As for transfer switches, I am not familiar with them. You could contact Jayco directly with your vin number and ask for the electrical schematic, as you lost power and trying to track down the problem.

Might check for continuity in the power cord. Was yours used in the PDI or was it the dealer's?

Can you post a pic of the (now open) panel?

OK, you've got power to the Main breaker in your RV. That means the cord and all its connections are good.

Once the main breaker is back in place an switched on, can you probe the 2 buss runs that power the individual breakers vs. neutral?
