Since you already have a transfer switch it should be pretty straight forward. My installation was more involved because my Dolphin did not have a transfer switch. At the sametime I installed a Progressive Industries EMS-HW50C. Which ever you purchase just follow the installation instructions and you shouldn't have any problems.

A 50 amp ATS will have 3 cables entering it.

The cables from shore power and to the breaker box will each have 4 wires. Black, red, white and ground.
The feed from the generator should have a black, red, green or bare wire and 1 or 2 whites.

Lots of wires, take pictures.

Ramster, Wish you luck in changing your trxfer switch. I think I may have the same problem in my 2007 Sea Breeze. When I am connected to shore power both of my AC units run fine. When I run my generator neither one will run. Has anyone had this happen to them or know what may be wrong?

ATS

I had it replaced at the shop the ATS is in a tight spot and not too easy for me to get to. If your gen is working and no power it will be the ATS or the switches that are on the gen are also fuse breakers. You can shut the switches off to reset them and back on, if they are soft to the touch then they might be the problem can be replaced. Mine did not but some gen have a fuse that come off the gen to power and should be checked. RV shop 700.00 to replace my ATS

hope this helps

One hint, remove heavy loads prior to switching power sources.

Power

Removing loads might help but I was running gen in front of house after a 800 mile trip I plugged in the TV receiver and the ATS box blew out. It was a good thing it did happen in front of my house and not on the road.

Thank you guys

Fred, I see you have a 2005 with workhorse. Where is your ATS located? I have a 2007 workhorse sea breeze. My coach is not with me right now.
