Ok, thank you for your help.

I left Georgetown a message to check on the recall and hope we figure it out soon.

i do not have a Georgetown but the transfer switch on our CC only engages when the generator is running, this would lead me to think that it is in generator mode. You might hit the transfer box with you hand and see if it releases it might just be stuck to the engaged side.

I think you guys are right that it's looking like the transfer switch has an issue. I'm waiting for forestriver to call me and then I may take it to the local RV place.

How expensive is that to fix. I have warranty but I had some challenges with my mobile RV guy fixing stuff then other things mysteriously breaking shortly after. He charges the warranty company a ton of money which they only pay for 75% so I'm always stuck with a big bill after.

A new 50 amp transfer switch should be between $125 and $150 plus install.
Why wait for Forest River to call. It is out of warranty as you have a 2008 Georgetown.
Dealer will figure it out and replace under your $$$'s

Here is what was installed in mine after the OEM switch failed.

Thanks Iggy, but you helped me fix the issue on the other post. It turned out that the electricians forgot to add the neutral line to the 4 prong 50amp outlet.
