The Forest River rep thinks it may be a bad transfer switch and said that it should be located under the bed. Everything under the bed is wrapped in carpet and sealed. I also looked in the storage area but can't find the transfer switch. Does anyone know where the transfer switch is located or have any other recommendations? Thanks.
Mine is a 2015 MBS, same model - so location may be different. The transfer switch on mine is located on the aft side of the wall near the water heater. If I recall correctly, I removed the drawer(s) and the access panel directly below. I have some pictures from my surge protector install located in this post here Where to install surge protector 2014 solera
The transfer switch is the galvanized box directly below the EMS I installed. Hope this helps.
