We are at a state park where the shore power breakers were replaced.... long story.... everything was fine till then. When they finished and plugged me back in.... nothing in the coach would work. The breakers are all good but theMagnum Energy inverter says No Inverter Communication. Ive done all reset proceedures...still says No Communication with inverter.Good Sam roadside sent guy out to no avail. So here we sit.... cant get slides in or awnings AND NO AC!

The park gave you a gift of a surge & probably fried your coach electrical system. You needed a surge protector.

Perhaps a silly question but did the Good Sam rep check the shore power?

I don't know you abilities but if it were me I would build an external power source to bypass the electrical system to power the slides and awning.

Mike,

First, it would help if you put what coach you have in your signature.

Do you have 30 or 50 amp coach? Is shore power 30 or 50 amp?

Absolutely, before even thinking about replugging into shore power, VERIFY correct polarity, voltage and presence of good ground. If you tell us whether this is a 30 or 50 amp connection AND whether you have a digital voltmeter, we can tell you how to do it.

Do you have a generator? If so, run it with shore power disconnected and tell us exactly what works/doesn't work on generator vs shore power.

Do you have an automatic power transfer switch? Perhaps it was zapped when new shore power applied. Did generator work before?
