Hi Pete & Linda,
I do not know your coach. However, many times the transfer switch can be found in the same compartment that has the shore electrical power cord.

If to power the coach from the generator, one must plug the shore power cord into an outlet in the electrical bay, then there is no transfer switch.

It is a big relay, usually in a metal box. Yours is most likely located near the 120vac power distribution panel. Your incoming power and the incoming generator power will enter the box and the output of the relay will feed your main circuit breaker.

OK here's the follow up post:
According to the receipt, and I think it's better that I write it exactly as it is on the invoice cuz I don't really know what it all means and don't dare to synopsize.

It says:
Inspected unit and found that the transfer switch is not switchiing from shore power to generator power.
The tech found that the transfer coil in the ATS is bad. The coil is discontinued by the mfg.
Replace the AT completely.
The AT that was selected by the extended warranty company (Good Sam) was not a direct replacement and the install had to be reconfigured. The new AT came with a replacement inside control panel and the tech had to enlarge the opening for the control panel.
The tech tested the system after the install and the unit is operational.

Warranty Pays $1139.91
Customer Pays $619.79

Breakdown: Labor $311.50 Parts $1,349.16 Tax $96.04

And that's all I know about it. That and the rig now takes shore power.
Thanks again for all the help and feedback folks. I always know I can depend on Irv2 for support and info. You guys are the best!
