We just brought the coach from the storage place and I hooked up to my shore power and nothing. I have a 220v properly wired that I have been using with no problem. I use a 50/30 adapter as my 220v coach cord is not long enough. The house breaker is OK. I have power all the way to the end of my power cords, checked with a meter, 115v. I checked to see if I had 110v while running the Gen again, and I did. All 110v worked.

We camped 2 weeks ago on shore power with no problems. Last week we went to the state park for the day and we used the Gen for aprox. 1 1/2 hrs with no problems. There was no shore power available.

I do not know if the transfer relay/switch is bad? Is there a fuse hiding somewhere?


Thanks for your input,
Fred

We are suspose to leave Friday night to camp .................

Never heard of a 220V RV hookup. Are you sure? Or, do you mean 120V @ 50A?

Yes, a properly wired 50 amp RV outlet could be referred to as 240 VAC, as hot to hot IS 240 VAC.

Good idea to disconnect and ohm meter check the adapters-- they are usually not as well done as the cords.

If, repeat If you are safe working around 120 VAC, with power off, remove the top to the ATS. Plug it back in and check for power and proper wiring at the ATS.

You are right .........240v It is wired properly, I have not had any problems up to date. The power at the end of the cord going into the coach reads 112-115v from Neutral to either side terminal, nothing on the bottom terminal to neutral.
