Power from generator

I have a 2014 Georgetown 328 TS and I have the generator going. There is power to the fridge and microwave but no power to the TV's and plug ins. The breakers are turned on in the generator. The breakers inside are also on. I am missing something. This motor home is new to me and I don't know where to look for the switch I am missing.

What about a battery disconnect switch?

Two things come to mind.
1. Turn off all 120 volt breakers and turn them back on.

2. Go to the generator and make sure both 30 amp breakers are turned on.
Turn them off then on again.

The only common thing is the transfer switch between shore power and generator power.

If you still have no power to the MH then you need a professional check it out at the transfer box where the main plug in cable is located and check the connections behind the main electrical panel.



Let us know.

Do you have power to all your appliances when plugged in to shore power?

He has 120v power to the fridge and micro, I think the lights are 12v not 120v.
I am not sure if the lights should work with the battery disconnected even when plugged in.
It could be an inverter problem.
No way to tell for sure till OP post back.
