I need some info. Generator works great but the 30 amp transfer switch mounted under the kitchen sink doesn't appear to be working. The second leg of the 6500 watt generator is sending power to the transfer switch but the only way I can get the rear AC on is to manually hold the contacts closed in the transfer switch. Whatever controls the transfer switch does not appear to be working. Can someone tell me what to check in the transfer switch ? All of the wiring is correct I have checked.

Mayco,
Most transfer switches should be represented by the attached diagram. There probably has been a failure in the timing circuit or relay coil. You could try and fix it but save yourself some grief and wasted time and buy another one.

thanks, I looked t it again last night, I agree, whatever controls the transfer switch appears not to be working....probably a five dollar part. I am going to replace it with a new one, just have to find one that has a good 20/30 second delay. Any suggestions ? Road test is still a go for this weekend, rain or shine. Installed the new factory speedometer over the weekend.

One possibility is a Progressive Dynamics PD5100. I bought one a few years ago to replace an original. It works fine and has the 30 or so second delay built in.

Finished one more window this morning, I received the fire suppression system that I ordered-AFFF foam with four remote heads. Two will go on the intake manifold, one forward of the carburetor and one behind, one head in the generator compartment, and he last one in the refrigerator compartment....this will end my worries of a fire that I probably would not be able to put out while driving. Did the road test today and got the 325 inspected. Great drive and about 80 degrees out. R-12 dash AC worked awesome, blowing through he ducts at about 41 degrees. I ran it hard at 55 MPH approximately 2800 RPM up a seven mile mountain road. It ran hot and the aux. fans came on at approx. 255 degrees. It still overheated though, the hot light came on so I pulled over and let it cool down for ten mins. I am running all synthetic oils now, engine and transmission for the extra level of protection. When I was doing the water pump I questioned myself on the 5 blade fan...I am going to try a 7 blade fan to see if that helps. the new fan clutch works extremely well and is very quite. I was originally thinking of running 4:11 gears instead of the 4:63 that came with it, but it is so comfortable to drive at 55 at 2800 RPM that I think I will leave it where it is now for the time being. Well, next week....off to Cooperstown for the Memorial Day Weekend.

What fire system did you install? I was thinking of something similar myself.

Will post more info on the AFFF fire suppression system soon, received the new 30 amp transfer switch today, finished running the remaining RG6 cable on Sunday. I will install the new 30 amp transfer switch and the fire suppression system after the Memorial Day weekend. In-Motion Satellite will be installed during June before our big trip to Lancaster PA in July. I decided not to buy the tow dolly right now, I think towing 3200 lbs. of car might be to much for the 325, we will rent a car when we get there. Now for the summer I want to enjoy the fruits of my labor !

What a great weekend in Cooperstown, the 325 performed excellent. Beautiful weather from a cold temperature of 32 on Sat. Morning to a high of 87 yesterday afternoon. Boy the weather has been really crazy the last year. Just a great kick off for the summer season !Click image for larger version
