What do you do when you want to plug your coach into shore power--but, say, you've landed your American-made coach in the UK? How does this 50cycle and 230VAC pan out on North American-style 220VAC 60cycle? The coach in question has this symptom: When plugged into shore power, the the transfer switch won't "pull in" (latch) and the error "Bad Frequency" is displayed on the Total Coach panel. I've emailed this question out specifically to folks who have indicated they're in the UK. Yes--All Six Of Them! ;-) You folks and anyone else with specific knowledge are welcome to join us to reveal your clever solutions. And, if things were sometimes by trial and, er...retrial--share those too! cheers Art //

First thoughts are a transfer switch problem / configuration We have no problems 'running' on 50hz - save to microwave clock gaining time There are those who tell me that I am inviting premature failure of all my electrics by not 'properly' converting, but I fear they might by trying to sell me something ????!!!! Occasionally the 'demand' of the coach when plugging in will trip the post - thinking an inline soft-start will solve this Ian S. Exeter, UK Country Coach Allure 430
