found three transfer switches. Could the third one be for the onboard inverter only powering some of the outlets?

Here is a good one:
Generator didn't want to start, so I ran a line to a can and it started right up and supplied plenty of power to run both AC's
So, logic tells me not enough gas in tank to feed the 3/4 or so pickup tube. Even the transport driver had me add 5 gal, because he thought tank was empty.

Fuel gauge is a replacement and showed full.

So I went and got 10 gal and poured it in the tank. Oh no, drip drip drip. They didn't clamp down the inlet hoses and I am sure now, they did not connect the generator line or swapped it with the return line.

Now I have to get rid of another 70 gal of fuel and drop the tank. Yeah!

Why not use a siphon hose to speed up the process....

Undo fuel line on motor and power up fuel pump in the tank to push the fuel out. Have someone at the ignition key to control flow.

Cheers

That depends on which nickname. My guess is he's probably got a few nicknames that aren't printable......

I posted this some time ago, but in case someone missed it, here it is again:
How to get your panel AC light back after upgrading to a three stage converter without the mysterious brown wire. Actually, I am using the adapter at 7.5V.

Getting close, should be wrapping it up by the end of the month. In the meantime, I found this switch, I have never seen before. Could it be the autofill switch for the freshwater tank?

You are correct, but itís not a switch, itís a solenoid. If you upgrade to a 1/2Ē ID solenoid the tank will only take 5 minutes to fill instead of 30, Regards, Bob

Thanks, Bob!
Also found floor rot along the floor channel on the rear street side just forward of the fuel inlet. I checked all adjacent water lines and they appear to be fine. Must be an external issue related to the long awning draining down the side. Unless I have some toilet supply issue buried in the cabinet.
