Where is the transfer switch located? Appears this recall only affects 12 units?

Hi all,

My camper is the one that initiated the recalls. TAKE THIS VEY SERIOUSLY. It will start out very subtle. Mine started with the ceiling fan running and the rest of the 110V appliances not working.The appliances then started working again and I had no problems or indications of ANY problemsfor 3 months.After that appliances started failing one after another. Eventually we had to evacuate the camper because of smoke and fumes from an unknown source. I removed the power fom the camper and the smoke subsided. I believe the camper was or would have been on fire very shortly.I took the unit to a rv repair shop and the tech at Johnnys rv discovered the reversed wiring.You may want to see if your internal wiring is compromised if you had this wiring problem. I am currently working with CrossRoads, but no one can tell me if the wiring is compromised or not. Therefore it must be assumed that it is compromised and may be a possible fire hazard. This is not to be taken lightly.
