I have a 2017 3051S class c motor home. Shore power has worked fine as has the generat

I started the generator in our dry camp and it ran fine. Just no AC. Checked the breaker below the fridge and it's fine. Is there a reset or trip switch on the generator itself. Also, where is the transfer switch located?

Any ideas?

There is a switch on the generator. Remove the generator cover and look below and to the left of the start/prime switch and you will see a switch. Give it a try.

Actually the generator circuit breaker is located to the right of the start/stop switch that is located on the generator. It may be hard to see as it faces the rear or the coach.
The transfer switch is located in the water filter bay to the right of where the water filter is mounted. To access it you need to remove the 3 plastic panels that enclose the area.

You're right Steve, I was trying to recall which side and took a guess. 50-50 chance. I accidentally hit mine a few years ago while cleaning up after doing an oil change on my old Minnie Winnie. Took 15 minutes to track it down.
