It is a Forest River Forester 2401W on a MBS chassis. We have never used the gen set to power the RV but have tested is coming on since we picked up the RV in Feb 2016 (so yes, new). The generator starts fine but doesn't seem to "power" the AC or the fridge. The generator is a 3600 Onan LP and the propane tank is 3/4 full.

Do you know if the transfer switch is switching from shore power to generator?

I'm not familiar with your coach, but do you have a manual or automatic transfer switch?

it is supposed to have an automatic generator transfer switch but have no idea where this is. I can turn on the generator either from the control panel in the coach or outside on the generator when I take the cover panel off

Is the microwave powered?

If it is, then the transfer switch is working and allowing the generator to power the AC bus. If not, then the transfer switch may have failed.
