Bob Loomis was kind enough to give me a call. He has actually done this on a PT36. Short story is remove the seat, carpet, million screws, and the switch comes out the top. His had enough wire to remove and replace switch. I will tackle this in the spring unless it fails completely before then.

Yup, seat up, flooring/carpet up, ** and we found the box enclosing the manual transfer switch was +3" wider [and even longer!] than its trap door. Without the seat, the switch came straight out with slack wire. I'd have to find the part number; we found an ATS which fit [diagonally!] into the existing box. <whew>
Definitely NOT a job to come up from the wheel well - although that is exactly what George Morris did when we discovered my bus had a "hot skin" and he deduced that a certain factory recall to drill weep holes in the box had never been performed on my bus.... [Something you might want to check for.]
**Wiring chase removed also....

I should have mentioned - drilling the weep holes released about a half-cup of water from the switch enclosure box - AND solved the "hot skin" issue. Said accumulated water doubtless hastened the failure of the manual transfer switch! [It had become "intermittent" - as in, sometimes it would just work "normally", and sometimes I would have to fight it until it turned. The day I had to dig out the wide-jawed vise grips to turn it was my final straw....]
