RV Automatic Transfer Switch

I have a 1999 Coachman Sportsman RV. A few days ago when arriving at a campground I plugged the AC cable into the Campground power and heard a buzzing, then nothing. I did not have AC inside.
I turned on the generator and was able to use the microwave but the ac wall sockets were dead.
I assume that the problem lay with the ATS.
It is a magnetek 30 - G option.
I cannnot get to the ATS box because it is sheet metal screwed to the power center and I cannot get access to one of the screws. It is behind the leftmost breaker which is a single T&B.
How does one remove this breaker ???? It must be a simple process which I'm missing !
I would appreciate some help.

With all power disconnected I assume. If you don't see a screw and tab at top or bottom, then it should just pull out. Usually a good pull at top will do it, but may take a small pry with screwdriver and top should flip out.

Removal of T&B Breaker.

Thanks Mike !
I gathered my courage and pried it out with a screwdriver. I had been afraid to exert too much force for fear of tearing a contact off the back board.
