NAPA has their own brand of relays. If you buy named units, you will be paying more.

Slightly off topic, sorry. I set up an alarm for the house door steps that rings when the engine is running and the steps are down. Unfortunately it quit working and I’m having trouble fixing it. I initially found a fuse in the fuse box under the steering wheel that provided 12 volts only when the engine is running. Anyone have a fuse chart to help me find it again? A few years ago I posted the whole thing in this forum. I would appreciate a link to it.

Thank you for finding it!
I still haven’t found the fuse that has voltage only when the engine is running. I have the E350 manual with names and numbers but it doesn’t seem to help. Just a matter of time, though. I should have saved a photo of the connection. I have some other DC problems (rear view camera). I will be 70 next month and I’m not as able as I was. Darn!

It would be good if RV manufacturers would include a placard that clearly states this kind of information including location of solenoid switches, fuses, reset buttons, etc. The proper operation of generator, converter/charger, transfer switch, chassis alternator, house and chassis batteries, etc., is critical to running air conditioning, furnace, fridge, microwave, water heater, interior lights, fans and entertainment devices. I wonder how renters figure this stuff out once the are out on the road.

They can easyly find most of it on Instructional Videos in many languages or Instructional Manuals also in many languages.
