Ok...so a new problem.
Now the generator starts but doesnt power the unit.
The shore power works and it is not the fuse on the generator.
But since no one at FR responds to the dealership we can't get answers.
(I asked them to coordinate sending our unit back to factory to try to fix the slide issue properly - which they do not respond to)

I am absolutely stunned at their poor quality and responsiveness/customer service)

Anyways. Anyone have thoughts on my power problem? Thanx

Sounds like your generator isolation relay is not closing in. It keeps the generator from closing in and back feeding through the shore power feed and vice-versa. You said your unit works on shore power but not the generator, were you plugged in? I don't think this relay will let the generator close in if shore power is connected but I have not researched the control logic for this function to determine what is the preferred feed.

Did you check the 30 amp circuit breaker on the Onan generator? I am not aware of a fuse for the generator.

Do you have the name of your Forest River, Factory Warranty Representative for your RV. The Dealership that I purchased my 3051S will never see me again. There are other authorized places warranty work can get done besides the Dealership.

The dealer "claims" they are not getting a response. PM me your VIN. 99% of the time I hear that it is missing paperwork or lack of response for some info that may have been requested.

Why would the dealership need to call FR to troubleshoot a gen issue? That's why they hire certified techs.

Bclems I will send it to you again. You provide great input and service here and if you can get someone at FR to contact me I would be grateful. Thanx
