Customer Question

let someone use my camping and they used the 220 side of the generator, They called me and said they fried their vac. I asked to you have it hooked up to 120 volts 30 amps, there was a moment of silence, I knew something was wrong, I know the microwave display went blank, worried about everything else, going to test the converter first, I do know how to use a meter , but not sure where to start checking everything
JA: Have you checked the battery, particularly the terminal connections? Are they corroded?
Customer: They are clean, and tight, brand new battery
JA: What year is your Volts?
Customer: What year is your Volts? , not sure what your asking. the camper is a keystone 2008
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes going to try to fix it, just trying to figure out a road map for testing everything
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: not at this point

So they hooked up your 30 amp 120 VAC cord to a 220 VAC outlet? Start by getting a small digital multimeter and we can take some reading and track down the damage. It might be confined to just the converter. I need to know the make and model of your load center when you respond.
