Help! Lost shore power

Hey everyone, I am currently dry camping and had my small Honda generator running power to my 2007 Seneca 34SS like usual. Worked great half the day and then I lost power to RV. Checked Honda, still running and putting out power. (itís all running a small battery charger to my trailer) but not powering RV. Started on-board generator, had power again.
Now I only get power when main gennie is running, not from the Shore power hooked to the Honda 2000i.
Checked and reset all breakers.
Any other ideas?
Iím at Cougar Buttes in SoCal, BTW!
On my iPad, canít figure out how to flip photo. Haha

Transfer switch failed, or bad connection inside it.There was even a recall on some of 1st generation SENECA's because of failures.

More often than not with an issue as you described the problem is with the transfer switch. Many times a loose connection but it is also about as common that it failed internally and needs to be replaced. In any case, I would take a look at the transfer switch connections. The transfer switch is most often near the main breaker panel (just behind it), although I am not sure of its exact location on your RV. ~CA

Probably under the bottom drawer of the wardrobe.

Black or silver square box with 3 sets of #6 wires going in and out.

Mine was a black plastic box, about 8-10" each side. Wires going in and out.

When mine failed, it wasn't the transfer box per se, but the wires had vibrated loose from their terminals. Much easier fix.

UNPLUG your RV, breakers off, before you stick your hands in there.
