Don't have an RCS8V, but it reminds me of a problem I occasionally have with a sixpack switch... One or two of the ports on one side are intermittent unless I click the brake of my ham rotor 50 feet above it.
The relays used are 3P2T, with one pole used for locking out the other port from
I find that over time, that pole sometimes fails to make contact on the unused port, thus preventing the port other from selecting it.
Even after cleaning the relay contacts & giving the relay frames a little tweak,
it's still intermittent here & the solution has been to leave the cover off, so that
I can either apply a little pressure to complete the connection, or merely
wiggle the relay slightly to achieve the same - perhaps what the brake on the
rotator is doing for Blake.
