Running

Running on generator

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 9 years ago
OK

Let me back up so I have a better idea...... You are ONLY missing AC power to that 15/20 amp breaker on generator power? ARE you also missing AC voltage to that breaker on shorepower? Are you missing ALL the AC power in the RV?

Sorry for all the questions just want to have an idea what is going on.... Robert

Just running on gen don't have shore power wher I am we are traveling


 

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 9 years ago
OK

Understand that part, just so I am clear do you have any AC power inside the RV? OR are you just missing AC power to that breaker? Robert

I have ac power throughout the unit just this one breaker is the problem and is associated line

All other breakers work associated buss bars are hot just this one bar is cold


 

RV Mechanic: Robert, RV Mechanic replied 9 years ago
OK

Go to the generator and make sure you do not have a breaker tripped on it, most will have two breakers located on them, this is why I asked if you had the same issue on shorepower..... Next go the inverter and make sure you do not have a breaker tripped on that, most inverters will have two resettable breakers on them, I would also shut the inverter off for a few mins and then back ON to see if it takes care of the problem. I would next try and plug into shore power to see if the problem is the same. IF you have AC voltage going into the breaker, go around and look for a tripped GFI, these are normally in the bathroom and galley but also can be hidden including the outside.... Hope this helps some IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me, please keep in mind I have no idea what you have checked so far..... Robert
