    If I plug my RV power supply cord into the house everything works, if I unplug the cord from the house and start the generator nothing works that runs off of a/c power.
    Any ideas?
    I checked the 2 glass fuses by the start/stop switch and they are good.
    I checked the breakers in the fuse panel too, all are on and glass fuses there are good too.

    If you are going through a transfer switch, perhaps it is not working.

    Some trailers or motor homes do not use a transfer switch. You then have to plug in your cord into a receptacle that comes off the generator.

    Also make sure the breakers on the generator are closed.

    Just some thoughts, let us know what you find.

    I have it going now...The previous owner never told me I had to plug it into an outlet in the storage compartment for the cord in order for the generator to supply ac voltage to the rv. That's how new this is to me ;) .

    I got home today..looked in the compartment and plugged it in..then everything went working like it should.

    Thanks for the replies... :)
