Hi, does your coach use 30 or 50 amp service?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
30 amp
Expert:  Michael Reush replied 1 year ago.
thanks the the power switches over automatically, once you start the generator there is a delay, then the auto transfer switch kicks over. Is this not happening?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
This isn't happening for the air conditioning. Air only works when rv is plugged in
