Check your house breaker and receptacle as well as your shore plug as one leg may not be making contact, either in the female receptacle or the male plug itself.

Not sure if it works the same way, but I had the opposite happen this summer. Lost one leg on the generator, but it worked fine on shore. Turned out to be a contactor issue in the transfer switch. One contactor was completely dissolved. New transfer switch resolved it.

Does your 87 have the manual switch?
If so could be not closing when changing to shore 50a. May try switching it several times, could be just stuck. Some have had issues with the manual switch as well. I personally think the issues with the manual switch come from switching under load.

Are you sure you had a load (anything on) on leg two?

Look inside the door on your ac panel box. There should be a diagram.
