Ok another Newbie Question

Should the AC stop working when you are using the generator. It was working perfectly. Then we came up the Black hills and it stoipped working. It works when plugged in. Could it be cause it was overworked in the climb? I have no clue. Going home tomorrow and have a few issues to give the dealer. New 2010 Georgetown and love it just a few things not working.

Once again, this could be a voltage issue that I replied to about your furnace problem. Your generator must have a strong battery bank to both start the engine AND have enough voltage to simultaneously energize the alternator of the generator to start producing the AC current. Your generator can be running but not producing a single volt.. MAYBE this is the problem with your AC not working, it could have been your generator not "genning"...!

When I got my 2010 GT 378TS I frequently forgot to plug into the house recepticle after unplugging from shore power. The newer models don't have an automatic switch over on the generator.

Check and make sure you're plugged into the housw recepticle in your power cord compartment.

There are breakers on the generator also. You might have popped 1 of them

Crochetlady, where are you!?!? You had so many problems and were sounding so frustrated. Please let us know how all this turned out. It really sounded like you purchased from someone that failed to give you proper orientation. Hope all is well..!
