Generator will not power 110

I have a new Isata 3. After I start and run the generator 5 minutes, I have no 110 volt power anywhere. AC will not run, oven has no power. No power at 110v outlets. What am I missing? A magic switch?

Have you checked the circuit breaker on the generator itself?

How about a little more info as to Gen type and size and what you are wanting to run? Later RJD

I believe the Isata 3 is a motorhome and the genny is the onboard variety.

Something worked!

I accessed the generator looking for a circuit breaker. I found an on/off switch, adjacent to the generator starter on the generator, in the off position. I switched it to on, and now have 110v generator power everywhere. Not sure if that is the breaker, but my problem solved. Thanks Bubbles!

This is awesome. I have the same rig and the same problem. I thought for sure the problem was with the transfer relay. I never even thought about a switch or breaker on the generator. We have a service appointment this week, but I'm gonna go out and check the switch tomorrow morning. Thank you

Onboard Generator not producing 110v inside coach

Glad you were able to resolve your situation so easily. Just for the sake of a possible down the road situation, I too had that same problem. What I discovered in my situation was the problem resided in the transfer switch box underneath the bed in our diesel pusher. The wires in the transfer box coming from the generator had loosened in their respective lugs. I'm assuming from vibration over the years of driving. The loose connection created arcing and those wires had burned off the lugs hence not delivering power to the 110 outlets. Circuit breaker never tripped which surprised me and I'm fortunate the end result wasn't of a catastrophic nature. Pigtailing the respective wires and securing to the lugs corrected the problem. In this case loose wires can sink your ship. Safe travels to you.
