Generator no power

Started the generator today and it runs fine but I am not getting power to anything. Flipped all the breakers and still no power. Any suggestions?

Sounds like the Transfer Switch isn't switching to the Generator

Can I change this out myself or do I need an electrician?

You could, but I would use a meter and verify that generator power is getting to it, but not coming out. You would have two inputs, generator on one side and shore power on the other and one output to the Redwood. The hardest part is working with the large guage conductors on all three connections.

Plugged in and checked everything works on shore power just not working with the generator.

if I remember correctly, there are also breaker switches on the generator in addition to the other breakers
