Buzzing noise from fuse box

I have a 2001 Fleetwood bounder Diesel pusher 37 ft RV. I'm not getting power on the driver side of the RV from the generator. Getting a buzzing noise from the fuse box and have replaced the relay. I'm getting 120 V from the generator but not to the fuse box. When I plugged in the shour everything works but not from the generator side. I would love the input to help me out no one around here seems to know what I'm talking about. Please and thank you and In advance

You don't say what model generator you have but if it is a 220/240v you may have one of the 120v outputs out. Maybe just a faulty connection.

Sounds like your talking transfer switch not fuse box. If you are term impaired like me OK LOL. But if you don't know the difference it's time for a pro. If you do, with all power off take cover off transfer switch, start Gen check voltage in and out with meter also before start tighten or check tightness for all wires in the transfer switch. Another thought have you checked the GFI' s in the coach or if you have an inverter the breakers on it are also mostly set side to side.

It's tough to decipher your description of what's happening....Your generator has a circuit breaker on it. If it's tripped, the generator will run, but not supply power to the coach until you reset the circuit breaker.

Do the checks I listed to see about all you can do. I all checks out input but output is down most likely burnt contacts in transfer switch and will need replacing. Take pictures befor job then replace. most can do the replace IF there is room.
