1 A/C is Airexcel installed last year, the other is original not sure of brand. My problem is with Invertor charger? When plugged up to shore power sometimes the charger works. I ran both A/C's last night for a test after installing new house batteries. Invertor was charging everything normal. After about 12 hours everything shut down. Check voltage coming in at power cord 128 volts. I started coach motor 5.9 cummins invertor started charging. Shut down cummins started 7.5 KW onan generator and invertor charging. Attempted to turn on A/C generator shutdown with code 12. Plugged back up to shore power invertor charger not working. Do you know where power transfer switch is located? 2000 model Fleetwood Bounder 39Z.
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 7 years ago

Usually near the area where the shore cord comes in.............follow the cord right to it. Does this have a cord reel? Those can do this sometimes.

We have a crack Onan tech here, but he stays real busy as you can imagine. Batteries is always a good place to start when you have inverter issues. Once you have the ATS located we can run some tests to see if the contacts are burned or perhaps a relay is going south. Silver box with the shore cord and genset line going into it. Cover unscrews and then we can test with your meter. Let me know when you are ready. And which A/C did you try to run when the genset shut down? And which one was it?
