Automatic Transfer Switch Location
« on: August 14, 2017, 03:54:57 PM »
Hey everyone...I'm Craig. I have a 2006 Eclipse Attitude Toy Hauler 26FSAK. Trying to find the location of the Automatic Transfer Switch. Can anyone help. Feel free to email me craiganderson928@gmail.com
Thank you in advance for your help.

So what happened was I was hooked up to shore power and started my generator. Now everything works great with shore power and nothing with generator. Generator runs great.

Sorry, I'm not sure.  Maybe near entry door stairs?

I do know this response WILL push this question back to the top, and hopefully, get more responses.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.

Are you sure the camper has an auto transfer switch. Some you have to manually unplug the end of the shore power cord and plug in the cord from the generator. If you have a transfer switch, most generators have breakers on the generator themselves, usually on the side. Maybe the breakers are tripped or someone shut them off. This would not allow any power to leave the generator to get to the disconnect.

If you are unable to get an answer to the transfer switch location, then you'll have to just follow your shore power cord connection from the point it enters the trailer to the transfer switch. The specs for that model does indicate a transfer switch is included. I think most of the time the switch is near the area where the power cord enters the coach.  The transfer switch is usually an 8"x8" metal box.
Good luck.

Sounds like a relay stuck, or simply failed to energize enough to cause the auto-transfer.  It will probably happen again, but maybe not for a long time. If it gets to be a nuisance, it is time to replace either the faulty relay (if you have the skills) or the entire ATS module itself.
