Does this look like it's burned out to you?

Okay when I turn on the generator the fault light came on and the load relay on the far left keeps buzzing and moving like it's trying to switch but nothing happens.

Sounds like you are finding out your problem E-man.
After you open it up you can dry any water spill up with a paper towel and let it air dry. Too bad you don't have a hair dryer handy. Now you just have to wait. I bet you found the problem. Now your next issue is "why do you have a leak". Yuk
If it dries out and starts to work you may not need to replace it.
They are not hard to replace. My unit was only 175.00 to replace a few years ago with a Furrion model.
Let us know how it goes and it looks like you have a good following of helpers.

Just noticed you post
If the fault light comes on then that is an indication something it wrong (duh)
If the relay is buzzing and trying to engage then yes, this is your problem.
The relay is getting a faulty signal from the "engage relay board" and does not know if it should engage or disengage.
The water leak could have dripped on the circuit board and messing up the "engage relay" signal. Maybe once it dries out the signal will be clear of a false signal.
Let it dry out.
Do you have a 12 volt fan handy to place next to this transfer switch box for a couple of hours?
Would be worth a try.

Thanks wrapperman will let it air dry. There was not much moister at all so not clear how that got there. We are at the beach so maybe the wind and angle brought it.

We are testing to see if we may have a leak as the bathroom is right on top.

It only takes a drop of water on a circuit board and after it dries up it leaves behind a small amount of corrosion that affects the micro chop signal to IC chips
I noticed a small amount of corrosion next to the IC chips on the printed circuit board next to the LED light. This is what got me to think the water is the issue. And of course if you are at the beach then the salty air complicates the drying with corrosion issue.
Hope you batteries last and have fun at the beach my wife and I are jealous.

I also see a switch do you think it is the default switch for shore or generator?

I want to flip it to see if it will power the RV?

I don't have the manual for your model but it does sound like the switch could force it into the generator mode. Try it
It would hurt
If I can find your model manual on the internet I'll look it up.
Let me know

Front side looks ok, but I would want a look at the back.
Tighten all the wire connectors.


Just saw the close-up near the fault light, looks like corrosion to me.

It's the 30 second delay and it's not recommended for the the generator.
Will try again before we leave in a couple of hours but it's all set for the RV Guy to fix.
