Many thanks to all who posted info. We left the RV site yesterday morning at 7:00 and arrived at our first stop at 4:30. Fridge was as cold as when we left. Easy peasy! Hooked up, ready to go. I simply turned the switch on the control (just as pictured earlier) to ON and away we went. Sure made travelling easier, and less worry.

The transfer switch does not come into play when just switching from shore power to invertor. The invertor takes care of everything on it's own.

From the owners manual for my transfer switch:
ďThe CSW-TS15 is a 15-amp AC transfer switch that is designed to automatically switch the AC load connections between Utility power (or generator) and the AC output of Magnumís CSW1012 inverter.Ē

Some inverters may have built in xfer switches or may be wired into the generator xfer switch. Otherwise, unless your inverter is a continuous dedicated power supply for the circuit that itís connected to, it must have a transfer switch.

You're the second guy I've come across that didn't know about the on/off inverter switch. When we were at MORryde getting the risers I talked to a fellow who was very frustrated because his fridge didn't work while traveling. I asked him if his inverter was "on" and his answer was "yes", he had checked it on the inverter itself in the basement. When I told him about the remote switch in the couch he was flabbergasted!! It's too bad some of the dealers don't go through EVERYTHING with their customers.

I'm not going to say that the tech didn't go over that, but it may be that he thought that because of our experience with other 5v'ers we knew about such things. (There is just the slightest chance that I forgot about this part also)
Last year our neighbor in Florida voiced a wish that his Montana 3850FL had a black tank flush like most other RV's. I casually mentioned that I would install it for the meager fee of $50. He asked if we could do it before he and DW left for the season and I said no problem. I walked him around to the street side, opened the service panel and pointed out the connection. As I held my hand out for the fifty he just belly-laughed and remarked that in four years he never new about the rinse. And no, he never parted with the $50.

First trip out with our new 39TKSB3 we went to Eastern WA where it was in the 90's. We arrived and the frig was NOT cold like when we departed. I fired the gen and it kept tripping, reason was the frig was taking too many amps along with the AC. Later I read about the switch in cabinet next to door and now all is well!!!

Texas, if you look back on page one of this thread, a fine guy named DapperDan posted a photo of the panel. When you look at the photo the switch is located on the black switch ABOVE the one with the L-2 lit up. It is the one with the little green light burning. The on/off switch is right in the middle. Three little buttons on the left, three little buttons on the right, and the on/off in the middle.
That should take care of you.
