no gen power

I think our TS just took a dump. Traced the power to the TS from the Gen and no action at the switch. 120V coming to the TS.
Any thoughts on how to get it going or has it died. The switch is 19 years old. Switch is TODD MODEL TS50S.

We are plugged into 50 amp right now in Gardnerville, NV. so we have power.

switch

Dean,
Just reading your post about purchasing a Lyght X-fer switch W/DC volt contact.
This unit still the hot set-up?
How we still have power coming in???????? I am tired of staring at the compartment ceiling today. Maybe check it out tomorrow.

Also noticed one of the white ground 10gage wire connected to the side of the TS got a little warm/burnt---not good. Wondering if ground to chassis wire not grounding correctly?

Thanks Gary

….am sure there are other brands but Lyght has been good for me....IOTA was an older brand with a bad rep.....loose wires in the ATS is pretty common...actually had the lug in my OEM ATS get loose and weld itself so it "appeared" to be tight...so always loosen then retighten lugs so you know they are tight....applies to all 120v electrical connections in coach--especially the genset junction box on ceiling, above genset compartment.....some like a combined ATS and surge protector [eg SurgeGuard] ….I prefer two separate devices....for two separate tasks.....

wires/lugs

Thanks for the reminder to retighten all the lugs including those above the Gen. It has been quite awhile since I checked them. Old timer, Chet the electrician, helped me years ago and they were loose from the factory.
Also need to clean the grounds connected to the frame. Old coach NEEDS.

Looks like the Light/Esco model LPT50BRD would replace our old unit. Amazon has it for $207.

Alpine Transfer Switch

We ended up having the Light/Esco model LPT50BRD installed. It was the problem. Thanks to everyone for your advice.
