Smile Jinx! 3070 DSL without 120 v today- fine yesterday!

Yesterday I bragged on my Sunseeker having no major problems - today no 120 v eventho I'm hooked up( and have been for over a month). So called FR tech help and after testing several things it looks like either my cord or the transfer switch. It's hot here! I called thr nearest FR dealer in Sheridan, Wyo but so far no call back to my voice mail. I'm still under warranty, so I guess I'll just wait to hear from him( probably after the holiday weekend). At least every thing works on the genny, so I'll have coffee . Any thoughts? Thanks , my DH is in Cali, so I'm on my own.

Now the generator won't stay on ! First time boondocking even if it is in a CG. At least we're still under warranty. Hope Dalton's Rv in Sheridan can fix it Monday as I'm living in it for now!

Maybe an extension cord from the campground power pole to run critical stuff until you can get it fixed? Unplug what you need to run from the camper electrical and plug into the extension cord?

A neighbour in the CG suggested that I prop open the door to the generator compartment -that maybe it was over -heating. Did it -so far, so good! The ac feel so good. Thanks for suggestions about extension cord-I'll try that if this doesn't work out.

Nope! Genny ran for 3hrs with ac on then stopped dead. Won't start again. We'll see what they say Monday. It's hot here!

What door did you prop open? Compartment door or the removal cover that access the generators oil fill & air filter? The generators service cover needs to always be on while running for proper air flow.

Sure sounds like the transfer switch. Might take the cover off and look for a loose connection.
