Okay breakers good so it looks like my transfer switch may be it.

This may be a long shot but are the A/C's turned off?
Also some transfer switches make a "clucking" sound when they try to engage after 30 seconds or so from starting the generator. Do you hear anything like that?

All is off. I don't think it makes a clucking noise.

Not sure if they had anything to do with it but when we had the heater on the floor got very very hot this morning, like I said not sure if that has anything to do with it.

When you say floor heater are you referring to the propane furnace or is it an electrical 110 volt plug in heater?

If you are not comfortable working with electricity then there is not much else you can do. AND DON'T IF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE.
Sometimes there are small fuses inside the transfer switch box but there again you will be next to dangerous high voltage when plugged in to shore power or with the generator running.

After thinking about your heater getting very very hot, it could mean your generator is putting out too much voltage. That could also mess up you inverter inside the generator keeping it from generating electricity.

Wrapperman the heater works on gas so no load should be on it except for some battery power to run it.

Not too comfortable around electricity so we will wait for the RV guy to take a look at it Monday, unless I could check the fuses now while dry camping.

If the generator is NOT running then you can look inside the transfer switch box to see if there are any fuses that went bad. It's worth a shot.
Cheaper than a repair man.

I'm with you I would love for us to figure it out.

The generator runs every time. The problem is nothing in the RV comes on.
