First Trip-Electrical Problem

FYI:
Left Orlando for Gulf Port MS., stopped at a friends house and was showing off the New 2013 24S Solera with less than 1000 miles and noticed my light on the micro wave oven was not "On." With further investigation, I could not get the Air Conditioner on either with the generator running. I was kind of embarrassed. I believe I have blow a "Fuse." Not sure where or if any of you "RVers" have had the same problem. Appreciate any advice or "Help." Need to get the Air working in the next few days to do some dry camping or off the Camping World to get fixed. Thanks.

Should be on a breaker, does it work on shore power?

Check the breaker on the generator - open the generator "service door" - as I remember the breaker on our propane Onan is bottom center.

Assuming your 24s is the same floorplan as mine, look underneath the oven and there is a breaker box/ fuse panel. Remove the cover(s) to access the AC breakers or the DC fuses. The panels have plastic pullouts and the breakers or fuses are behind them. The little plastic panels should have the location of the various breakers written on the back side...
Hope this helps.

If that doesn't work, Reliable RV is in Gulfport and I'm sure they can figure it out for you.

Do you have an automatic transfer switch or do you manually have to change over to the generator?

I agree with above poster. I don't know if you have an automatic transfer or not. If you do, does any 120V work if not bad transfer switch. If you don't then you need to plug your shore power cord into the generator 30Amp outlet plug.

No transfer switch on my 2012 24S and no outlet to plug the 30amp cord into as in some other RVs. On my SOLERA it cuts over automatically.

The thing that makes it "cut over automatically" is a transfer switch.
