If you are on shore power or running the generator, you don't need the inverter for AC power.

The AC will come directly from the generator or shore power and the inverter is not involved.

In my transfer switch there are two relays. On one end of the relays, they are mounted one over the other, are the inputs. One from the genie, one from shore power. If on genie, you should have 115+- 10% when you measure between either the black and the white or the red and the white. You can also measure to ground (green.) When on shore power it is the same but on the other relay.
On the other side of the relays are the outputs. These may be tied together. But the concept is the same. Red to white should be 115. Black to white, 115.
Just make sure you make measurements with either genie only on and shore cord disconnected or shore connected and genie off. If you have it on shore or genie, on output, then you need to check further. That may be a breaker panel (probably is) or the inverter. If you have 115 at the inverter then it should work or it's bad. Don't forget to try the reset procedure.

UPDATE

I removed the inverter this morning and found that the white wire 120v, wire nut was burned up. I made repairs and everything works great!

I appreciate all the help and suggestions!

PICS

Here are some pics of what I found.

Since I don't like wire nuts, I decided to solder the wires and then use wire nuts.

Electrical connections vibrate loose frequently, and should be re-tightened annually in the rolling earthquake we call an RV.
I must have missed it, but if you have a Xantrex RS 2000 it is obsolete, no new parts available. A Xantrex tech support guy was very helpful with my problem and related that information before we hung-up.
