Might try checking the connection of the gen to the transfer switch. Possible there's either no voltage there or the transfer switch is bad or stuck and simply not switching over from shore power.

Not familiar with you RV, but usually you can follow the shore power cord to its termination into one side of the switch. The gen will hook to the other side. In my old RV (2006 Hurricane), it wasn't with the shore power; there was an electrical control center under the hood that gad the transfer switch built into it. What year and model is your RV?

which circuit breaker? the one on the generator, or the one on the 110 distribution panel. and do you have 30 amp or 50 amp. I have 50 amp and there are two circuit breakers on the generator. is it possible that only one of these is on (ie the other is tripped). aside from the generator there will also be circuit breakers on the vehicle distribution panel. one last remote thought. is it possible that you are powering the 12 volt requirements solely from the battery and not even getting 110 power from the generator?

Chick doe: You and I are headed the same direction. I think the 12v stuff is definitely running off his battery and either a breaker is tripped or the transfer switch is not flipping over to the gen.

See what you mean about the manual - not even a clue. Let me dig some more and see if I can find anything.

OK. Not sure if yours is like other models, but look under the bed. The switch will have three cables going into it. One from shore power, one from the generator and one to the coach.
