Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

If this unit is not prodcuing power, it will not continue to run - it will shut itself down.

Since it is running, it is making power.

If you are not getting power into your coach, possibilities are:

Bad circuit breakers on genset.

Loose/disconnect wiring between genset and transfer switch or receptacle (which ever you have)

Bad transfer switch or receptacle

Bad wiring between transfer switch or receptacle and main breaker box.
