Anyone know where EMS / Transfer switch is hiding in 2009 Providence?

I am trying to determine why I don't have shore power. I am not home so using a dog bone to plug into a 20 amp circuit at friend's home. The Surge Guard Model 40250 remote display is blank unless I start up generator. I was going to check the power at the the EMS but I can't find where they put it. Anyone know?

Welcome to irv2.
Your transfer switch should be on the end of your shore power cord in your electrical bay.
You could have a problem with your dog-bone adapter.
This link will have electrical information.
Enjoy the forums.

Thanks for the info. I never found the transfer switch which I believe is mounted in a cabinet behind the breaker panel, but I did find the problem. I had a wire break in the plug. All should be good when I can get a replacement on Monday.

For future reference, the Surge Guard 40250 IS the transfer switch as well as the power monitor and surge protector. The shore cord and genset output cord both connect there.
