Hello!
My name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.
First check the circuit breakers in the coach. Make sure none of them are tripped.
Next check the circuit breakers on the genset. Make sure they are not tripped.
If your coach has an onboard receptacle for genset power, make sure your shore cord is plugged in to the receptacle.
If you have an automatic transfer switch, it may be bad.
