Generator Not Starting

I can't get my generator to start.

We're driving a Georgetown 364 TS, on the road this morning starting a 9 day trip. I'm currently sitting in the Walmart parking lot while DW gets supplies. I'm normally able to press the Radio rocker-switch on the dash to listen to the radio while the vehicle is turned off, but that switch is not working. The switch for the generator is not working either, so I can't turn my generator on.

I'm a newb - this is only our 3rd trip with this new Georgetown - but those switches worked before today! I've checked and reset all of the breakers in the breaker box.

Can anyone provide any other things to check or other ideas of what I should be doing? We'll need the generator on this trip...

Sounds like battery dead or a fuze blew

Do your interior lights work ? If so you have a fuze problem

Some Gen have a start switch located at the gen it self. Check there. Later RJD

I'm thinking it must be a fuse. All breakers are good. I went out to the generator itself, and it appears to have no power, prime light won't come on when I press it, generator won't start from there either. I have fuses, a puller, and a tester. I guess once we get stopped for today I'll check fuses. Hopefully it's just a fuse and not a mouse-chewed wire or anything more serious.


thanks all, and happy trails!
