"This is always a problem with PT models no matter how hard you try to seal them some of the units just get this way"

This came to me directly from the President of Progressive industries. So here is the explanation of failure.
So it was an electronic display failure (and others). Agree the contactor and water ingress is less result than desired.

Got update today from the Tech who did the repair, here is his comment.

"It looks as it was water damage that caused the failures. Although the unit is weather resistant, during a heavy rainstorm, covering the unit would not hurt, and help prolong the life. If you have any other questions, feel free to e-mail or give us a call. Thank you and have a great day."

This confirms that is was water damage. While waiting on the unit to come back, I have rewired and moved it inside next to the auto transfer switch. Hopefully this will keep it out of sight and DRY.
