For beginners, I have no idea what ....issues.... mean, but assuming that it is the transfer switch, I'd first pull the cover off for a looksee.
If it's never been touched, most likely you will find loose connections at the relay contactors, that are easily tightened. However, this looseness over time, has probably caused heat buildup, resulting in some of the wiring becoming crystallized. So replace or cut off the stiff portion, if it will still reach and you should be good to go.
I did this in a campground once and haven't touched it since, although the original problem was the twist-loc connector not making at the coach and resulting in a loss of the neutral return to the pedestal.
With what I saw in mine, I definitely wouldn't replace the whole thing, when not all that much trouble to just replace a bad relay, that should be available from any industrial parts warehouse.
Again, you haven't given much info or with attesting to trying anything, thus far.
