Transfer Switch
« on: August 06, 2017, 10:21:08 PM »
We have a 2007 Carri-Lite by Carriage 36XTRM5 5th Wheel.  Looking for the Transfer Switch. Does any one know where they may have installed it???
We have a generator in the front looked all around & can't see the Transfer Switch.  Looked in the breaker box not there either. Also checked the battery & fuse box areas nothing.  We have power to the trailer then then no power.  If we run the generator 6500 everything works, that's why we think it's the Transfer Switch.
We've looked in all the outside compartments and can't find it.  Everything is enclosed finished so we'll have to start tearing things apart unless someone can help us.

Welcome to the forum. Can't help you with the transfer switch, but I'm sure someone will chime in soon.

Not familiar with that model. Can you expand on your question some? Does it have a generator in it? What are you looking to do? What is the problem you are trying to solve?

My guess is near the generator or main panel. If you don't have a generator you don't have a need for one.

Or do you mean a 12vdc switch ? a battery cutoff is usually right near the batteries.

As Glen says, you probably don't have one unless you have a factory installed generator onbaord. If you do, it is where the shore cord and generator cord cometogether, so follow the shore cord to find it.
