    I have a 2012 American Coach that shore power quick working. Is there a fuse or breaker I don't know about?

    Thanks for any help

    Will it work off generator? If so you may have a transfer switch not working. You should have a main breaker located in your electrical pane. My HR also has a switch located on the transfer box. Have you checked the shore power for correct volts?

    When you go to the shore power you should get a good clunk sound as you flip the breaker on the plugin panel on from the transfer switch. The transfer switch should be in the bay with the power cord.

    I suspect you have a EMS system. What is it telling you about the power form the pole?

    If you was just checking with volt meter at pole it may show voltage. I ran into that at a CG in Ms. Show 120 when not pluged but plug up the 50 amp and voltage dropped to zero. You may find you have no problem at the next CG. Let us know

    You are so right... That why I was going down the EMS line of logic. His EMS may have been working as advertised and was experiencing an issue with the pole power and would not allow juice into the unit.
