2017 mbs2400W transfer switch

Hello everyone,
I recently bought a 2017 MBS 2400W.
I would like to install a Progressive Industries HW30C surge protector but can not find the transfer switch, does anyone know where it is located in these models?
Also, I filled the fresh water tank tank and to empty it I opened the drain valve under the tank but the water only flows very slowly. Anyone know why?

Thank you

We have the 2017 2400w sunseeker,. Try under the bed for the transfer switch. On ours it helps to open a faucet and remove the drain plug on the hot water heater. Hope this helps.

The drain is strictly gravity feed, it's a small opening, and there's not a lot of pressure. It takes forever. You might try sucking the water out using the water pump and then trying to get the last little bit using the drain valve. There should be a better way, but I don't know what it is!

On the Isata3 we did have I installed the protection unit In the same space as the transfer switch which was in the small cubed area next to the bed, just inside of where the electrical outdoor connection points are. Removed screwed on cover and accessed from there. Seems likely your model is the same layout.

See attached image where I circled area. Best of luck

On my 2016 Prism 24G, there is no transfer switch. To get power from the genny, there is an outlet where the power cord is stored and I plug into that.

Thank you for your comment, I opened a faucet but still flowing slowly, next time I will use the water pump if I want empty faster.

I'll check tomorrow under the bed for the transfer wxitch

I already check in this space, I can see the ac wire coming from the AC supply but no transfer switch. Any way, I believe it is the best place to connect the surge protection.

Thank you

on one of my older campers there was a piece of junk stuck in the drain hose. I blew air into the drain hose when open once and it cleared the clog. open fill inlet before blowing air into tank.
