Customer Question

I have a new Champion 2800 watt inverter generator. I connected it to my fifth wheel RV, started it and got a message on my surge protector system saying "no ground". I had voltage but the surge protector would not allow power in. I tried it again and got no voltage out of the generator at either the RV or in the 15 amp plugs on the generator.
Any ideas?

There is a good chance your inverter unit is bad.

Are any of the lights on at the control panel while the genset is running?
