Just make sure the generator is OFF
The coach batteries will not hurt you unless you touch a positive to a negative with your pliers or screw driver. Remember on the batteries the negative is any metal on the coach.

Okay started looking but can't find the transfer switch. Is it under the stairs? I also see a box that is connected to the shore line but can't see how to remove cover?

When you checked your genset breaker you should turn it completely off to reset and then on. May not be the issue, but just a thought.

I can't tell you where on your unit, but you should be able to follow the shore power line and the generator power line - they will meet up at the transfer switch.

Okay just found what I think is the transfer switch but it appears that it has a small water leak going into it.

When I try to take the cover off with everything shutdown I got some water leaking into my hands. There was a paper towel sitting there and it's socked. Since the rear toilet and sink are directly above it (genius design) I think it's one of them.

Can't figure out how to take the cove off to take a closer look, but I see a couple of screws so I will try it out.

How about you just top off the oil as needed, rather than run the generator, knowing its low on oil and go with what the design engineers wired it for that specific reason.

Sounds like you might have fried the transfer switch. Maybe letting it dry out will give it new life, but pc boards really don't like water much. Good luck.
