Generator not providing power to 110 outlets

1st time I've run the generator to power the 110 outlets and no juice. It does power the a.c. Any ideas to solve this would be appreciated.

Are you absolutely sure that your 30/50 amp plug is plugged into the receptacle in the storage compartment? We do not have automatic transfer switches.

Think so but will check. Interesting that you mention no auto transfer switch. It just goes to show you that two shop techs, one where we bought our word on and Camping World and Camping World here at Tallahassee both said it may be a faulty transfer switch. What you have said about the cable being plugged in makes a lot of sense since it would make it a manual transfer. Couldn't find anything in the FR owners manual that would tell me that. Thanks again.

The OP said the airconditioner is powered.

This is probably my biggest gripe of my 32DS. $88k and they still canít put in a $200 transfer switch so that I donít have to manually plug the coach in. I almost think itís a safety failsafe though from an engineering perspective. If the transfer switch somehow fails, which I canít see how this would ever happen, and you turn on the generator, there is a chance the plug becomes electrified and therefore a hazard.

I guess this is also why I have bought a 50A receptacle to relocate my shore power line so I can disconnect it. So all in all, $500 factoring in my time, to fix Forest Riverís incompetence. And I would have gladly paid $500 more to avoid doing this mod myself. Now I just have to find the time to do all this.

Then check breakers. Just a quick check on the plug to humor me.

Check breaker on the generator. Flip it off and back on.
