I am sorry no one has responded yet. I know you must be thinking " I have been taken or this is a scam" Neither is the case. Sometimes there are more questions than we can get to and we just keep getting farther and farther behind. Sometimes what a customer asks, no experts online are confident their answer will be good enough. Is there any more information you can add to your concern or is there another concern you may have that we could answer instead?

No other concerns at this time, just the two problems (no AC going to living area from NewTRC surge guard transfer, & new Air ride control board and system doesn't work.

The wire diagram I have does not include the surge guard so I do not believe my diagrams are going to work in figuring this out. I will opt out.
