50A Power transfer relay/switch FAILED!

Hey! Can anybody Help? Our 2002 Country Coach Intrigue 40' DB has no POWER ! I think it's the POWER TRANSFER SWITCH that is switching the
neutral, maybe...BURNING UP!!! On our way to Houston tonight, for a weekend stop-over at my Sisters's for the weekend, then on to The Grand Canyon.
Exausted, and at wits end,

transfer switch

if i was in your shoes my first call would be PPL they are in Houston probably have a replacement switch in stock. They are not hard to change once you find them or any electrician can do it. I had to bypass mine on a old MH in a campground (I was a electrician as a young man) if need to by pass get proper size wire nuts and match colors also put a wire nut on each separate wire from the generator just in case.Good luck Mike

A multimeter is your friend here. Easy to figure out where your power is not getting passed through. If you don't have one, perhaps your next campsite can loan you one or you could impose upon a neighbor.

There is also a transfer switch in the inverter that I have run into and thought I had lost all power. I reset the inverter and all was good. Just a thought to check.

Start the generator, if you get ac current then transfer switch and inverter are ok.

If have ac current but no AC cooling then problem is with AC circuit breakers or AC units.

If no ac, then check the switches/breakers on the inverter.

If ac on generator but not from power pole then:

Check the power pole voltage or connect to another power pole.

Check the power cord for voltage at the coach end.

Check the transfer switch out bound for power.

If no joy, call a mobile mechanic.

Thanks to all for the replies, and the much needed help!
We replaced the transfer switch in Houston, and managed
NOT to kill each other for the rest of the trip.
Thanks again,
