Last week my Cablemaster quit working. Being the handyman that I am, I checked the fuse. The one listed on the chart next to the fuses showed the Cablemaster was a 20 amp, second fuse from the left, it was good. After some more poking around I found that the blue wire for the Cablemaster was attached to a 15 amp fuse designated to go to the TV amplifier, also a blue wire, and guess what, it was blown. After switching the wires and replacing the blown fuse, all was working again. If you blow a fuse, check all the fuses and if the wrong one is blown, check the wiring, or at least do not trust the labeling!

My Cablemaster went out recently as well. There are three places where the fuses are documented... on the label by the fuses, in the users manual in the middle, and in the wiring diagrams in the back of the manual. All are wrong. I didn't rewire the fuse panel, but I did find the blown 20 amp fuse and replace it. I told WRV about it but I don't know if they ever updated their documentation.

My two cents here--since you have already been "exploring" the inner-workings of the electrical system, now would be a good time to check/tighten all of your 12v and 110v wiring connections. [First make sure all power is off!] The most obvious connections include but are not limited to: 1) all the connections in breaker/fuse box/cabinet; 2) connections inside the generator cover; and 3) the connection box that ties the flex conduit coming from the generator to the RV-style cable going back to your tranfer switch.
