Transfer switch

Can someone please tell me where the transfer switch is located in a 2006 Lexi 255GTS? It looks like the shore power line goes into the parallax 7155 converter. Is it located within the converter box?

Are you sure it has a transfer switch? I can't remember when we switched over, but we used to use a manual one...no auto transfer.

It would be a plug in the rear compartment. You plug the power cord into it.

I found a transfer switch on the Onan genset and switched it off - no more issues when plugged into shore power.

OK, I'll Bite. Is the transfer switch an actual manual switch to isolate the generator from the shore power? The manual says it is built in. I too have 2006 lexi.
