they get overloaded by using to much power pretty easy ( believe me ) so expect to visit that breaker again - and on my Rev , it involves crawling underneath .

I have the same problem with my onen micro 4000 generator in my 2000 coachman class c. During our last road trip we plunged into a shore power where another motor home on our circuit had a power cord where the the power wire melted into the ground wire and the fault it created on the entire circuit tripped our 120 amp breakers and fried our power strip inside the motor home. Other units on the circuit had similar problems. I had my system checked and the inverter was good and all worked on shore power and we finished our road trip without problems but never used the generator.

Yesterday I did my routine exercise run on my Onen 4000 generator and it started and ran great but did not put out any 120amp power. I suspect the earlier 120amp fault shore power problem either tripped something on my generator system or fried my transfer switch. Before I start a generator check out, has anyone had a shore power fault mess up the generator system?
Where can I find the breaker on a 1999-2000 Onen 4000 micro generator and where might I find the transfer switch on a 2000 coachmen Cantilena Sport motor home? Any advice before I start checking out my generator system would be most appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any advice,
Rome

Now you have a good reason to invest in a surge/voltage protector system (like the Progressive Industries or other similar brands).

Rome - don't know why that surge would have tripped your generator while not in use , but crawl underneath or wherever yours is located and find the tripped breaker located on it . Mine is smaller and newer but I think they all work similar. Good luck

I think those breakers are just too easy to trip...Onan issue of course, but those have a hair trigger.
