Here is a link to a service manual for the updated version of the transfer switch, the Intellitec 000-00803-400.

To expand a bit on what "twinboat" advised, first perform a visual inspection of the transfer switch innards with the shore cord disconnected and generator off (that is, all AC electrical sources off). Such an inspection may reveal burned contacts. If you don't see anything obvious, the next step would be to check the screws holding the wires to ensure they are all tight (manual says torque to 35 foot-pounds). Close the cover, plug in the shore cord, and see if the problem is fixed.

Anything beyond this requires checking voltages with live AC connections. If you have not worked with live AC before, I'd advise having someone else do the work as you watch. It's a great thing to develop confidence to work on your coach's electrical systems, but there's no denying that you can get injured or killed doing so.

hired a mobile tech to come check out the RV, the issue is that the previous owner had the original xantrex inverter removed (probably failed)so that is why the panel has no power....they had this cheaper paramode 5465 that you see in the picture I shared earlier installed and it is bad. which is why it wont charge batteries on shore power...

he said the batteries are charging on gen power because the diesel generator has its own alternator which is basically trickle charging the batteries. same with the engine when it is running it charges off the engine alternator.

He happened to have an extra converter with him that he ordered for someone else and never got paid for. He gave it to us at a good price since he had already been screwed on it. service call charge and remove and replace converter. 300$ total. everything is charging good now.

thanks for all the help
