According to Coachmen literature feature you have a manual change over generator switch somewhere or you have to take your 30 amp plug and plug it in generator outlet....

ELECTRICAL/HEATING/A/C

30 Amp Power Cord
55 Amp Electronic Converter
Dual Auxiliary Battery
Manual Generator Changeover
2.8 KW Onan Gas Generator
