I think you found the purpose of JR. BTW did you check the voltage to the coil when you manually hold the relay in? That is the voltage it will see long term. It may be lower then 60. You would still need a resistor so it doesn’t pull in until 50 volts.I appreciate he suggestion, but it turns out I was putting the cart in front of the horse. I assumed that because the battery voltage for the unit is 24 volts that the relay would be 24 volts. This afternoon I measured the voltage on the terminal that energizes the relay and found it to be 60 volts. This voltage comes from the generator as it powers up. Upon looking further in the manual it says that the voltage has to be a minimum of 50 volts to energize the relay. I guess I am back to square one trying to find a compatible relay, or a way to use a 24 volt with some type of resistor to cut the voltage and not burn up a new relay. I don't imagine that a 110 volt relay would energize enough to be usable.
