      Has anyone had an intermittent battery switch? My last flight I had to cycle the battery switch several times to power the battery bus. Battery had good voltage and started both engines. My thought is to change the battery relay but could be just the switch. Thanks,

      Don,

      I had the same issue and it was the relay. Took the relay apart and it was evident as it was burned on the contacts. I don’t know how the relay comes apart or if it wrecks it doing that, I was just sent a picture of it and it looked bad.

      It only happened once but I figured it would ground me some place so I had it investigated.

        Jim,
        Thanks for the reply. I figure it is the relay. The worst feeling in flying your own airplane is it breaking 600 miles from home.
