I shut the AC off at the dash and make sure that the water heater is off, but I haven't had an issue with the block heater or toe heaters, but then it is rarely cold enough for them to turn on.

Might be hard on the contacts in the manual transfer switch moving under load.
once you move the transfer, then flip the 50amp breakers on. you'd also see if something else tripped at that moment since you are already there.

Hope this might help.
Cheers, Doug

You talking about the main breaker panel in the closet? I can do that.
