And we can now see the Great Looking owner and photographer as her reflection is in the new electrical connection cover.

Great job!

You should be good to go trouble free for a long time.

Re Reading this thread... There is one and only one post that made sense.. I keep wondering, Since when you are not hooked to shore power HOW can that cord possibly heat up, Where was the current source.

Someone noticed and exposed 12 volt isolator relay and the theory that the ground pin on the 50 amp cord came in contact is the ONLY one that makes sense..

I can see no other way this could have happened.

Had the inverter transfer failed, and the shore power/generator transfer been like mine (resting (no power) state is "SHORE") the inverter would have simply shut down before that cord overheated.

ONLY the exposed isolator relay (12 volt) makes sense it's the only thing in an RV that carries that kind of current.

I agree with your conclusion.
Glad that all is put back together and everyone is safe. Looks like a good job in the repair. Also good is the protective cover over the 12 v connections. I think it was Mr D that spotted the missing cover, good call Mr. D.
