Skip
This is a NHTSA recall so they have to pay to replace the switch.

Can you use the rig while waiting for new transfer switch box if switch box has been damaged? Won't be using generator.

The transfer switch gets power from shore power or generator, would not recommend using it. We are waiting also and not using our Berkshire until it's replaced.

Thank You So Much for the information Skip...It is much appreciated. Hopefully they don't take long to ship and arrive!!! Got a date for the 5th of September to take the rig out. I do have an appointment to get transfer switch replaced on the 4th if it arrives...Crossing my fingers

Maria,

You might want to call the dealer while you are waiting to have the new switch installed, and see if you can stop by and just have them check the switch wiring to make sure they are all secured. I did this before they put my new switch in. It took about ten minutes for them to check the switch. I was then able to use my MH, with peace of mind, until they installed the new switch.

Craig,
Some of the wires in the switch box are fried. So I will just hold off untill we get the part. The dealer is also about 100 miles away. Wish they gave us gas money.. Also glad the rig didn't catch fire!! :}
