Automatic Transfer Switch Failure, May 16, 2011
Saturday, May 7, while setting up at Trailer Inns Bellevue RV Park, I
discovered that Bigfoot's Automatic Transfer Switch had failed and burned
(sometime prior to this day). I drove down to Camping World at Tacoma on Monday, May 16
to have the switch replaced...
The electrical systems specialist
at Camping World concluded that the burn-out resulted from plugging into a bad
power post - probably an open ground. I now use the TRC Digital Monitor (Model
AECM20020A) to guard against improper polarity and ground wiring issues when
hooking up to shore power...
