Question AC power

Hi all, I am back again looking for advice. I have a 2008 FR Berkshire 360QS and the problem I have is the generator runs fine, but I am not getting any AC power to the coach. When I hook up to shore power everything works fine on 30 or 50 amps. Three weeks ago I went away for a week and I had the generator running with the frig cooling down and the one air conditioner running to keep it cool. Last week when I was getting ready to go camping I ran the generator, but no AC power to run the frig or air conditioners. Has anyone had this happen to them and where do I start looking for an issue? I don't have any good wiring diagrams so if there is a fuse or fuses or bad ground I have no idea where they are located. Thanks in advance, Roy.

Slide your generator out and check the breakers on the generator control panel first.

There's a breaker right beside the start button on the generator. As previous poster stated that breaker might be in the off position.

Odds are it's the switch on the generator.... If it's thrown, generator but no juice goes to coach - ask me how I know that....
