Gen/Shore Automatic Relay

Mark Erdos

What is the purpose of this relay please?


I replaced Gen/Shore auto switch with a manual rotary switch due to two failures and an almost fire. Is this something I also need to remove?



With best regards,

I am 95% sure that a standard automotive relay is used in the Onan.

Based on schematic K1 and K2 are equal relays? Do you know model and manufacturer of the relays?
