If you read the old post there's more detail. The jest of the problem is the transfer switch was designed cheaply and only used one coil with 3 wires rather than 2 separate coils.
Tbh the transfer switch was designed to be sold for use with a generac generator (non-gfci) and the briggs i own should have been used with there transfer switch. Funny thing is turnerjr has a generac generator with a gfci so tech support should be able/forced to help him (they refused to help me as my generator was not a generac)
