Generator

I have a CC 34RLSA. We had a progressive control hard wired and we are not able to use our generator.
We did not get the generator prep done. Has anyone had this problem

You probably have a floating neutral generator and your Progressive unit is not allowing power to connect. I have read that you can fix that by a plug in the generator connecting the neutral to ground. But you'll need to research it further as I haven't actually done this. I'm sure someone who has will chime in.

Are you getting a fault on your Progressive surge protector? See this article regarding open ground with Honda Generators.

I'm Mike Sokol, author of this No~Shock~Zone article on bonding floating neutral generators with a G-N bonding plug. Thanks for posting the link here. This is indeed the fix per the engineers at Progressive Industries as well as my inside contacts at Honda.

There's lots more articles about RV electrical hookups and safety at No Shock Zone. Feel free to post any electrical questions there.
