Shore Power not turning coach on

Hey Everybody it's been a while and we are finally taking the RV out again and I haven't plugged it in for the last 8 month which is when we got the DTV satellite installed.

When I plug it into a working 50amp switch at home the main switch in the RV doesn't come on automatically like I remember it used to!

Is there a breaker switch I should check? Or what could it be.

The house batteries had very little drain which is impressive!

I believe there was a recall on certain transfer switches yours may fall under that category.
Hopefully someone with more knowledge can help.

Are you running your generator, if your generator is running the transfer switch will be engaged to it and not shore power. The transfer switch should disengage when you turn off generator.

No not running the generator.

Could this be a fuse or a breaker?

Where are the breaker switch?

Do you have power when using generator?
Have you verified power @ shore power outlet?

Yes for both.

So it's down to when plugged into the shore with my cords that worked before it's not switching on.

Ok so I'd be looking at the transfer switch.
And as I said before there was a recall on certain transfer switches.
If your generator gives you power then there is no breaker to check.
If gennie power can get in then so should shore power.
Once power goes through the transfer switch it's the same line if your on shore power or gennie.

Sounds to me the transfer switch isn't working.
