I believe it is behind the main breaker panel

Don't know your coach, but if you follow your shorepower cable when it comes into the coach, the transfer switch would be in between that and the circuit breaker box.

Follow the cable.

SOME; repeat; Some older coaches didn't have an automatic power transfer switch . They required that the RV power cable be plugged into an outlet in the cable bay to get power from the gen set into the coach .

If you could describe your problem , and tell us if you've owned the coach for a while and the gen set power used to get through , but now it doesn't.

Your transfer switch is most likely behind the breaker panel. Mine can be heard switching from power to generator there.

I have a 2000 bounder and the Contactor is located within breaker panel area. Mine is actually behind the 12v stuff, just unscrew that and pull it to one side and you should see contactor. In mine this contactor is operated by another delay relay (5sec delay)
