Back at home now! Was over a friend's house n I think the plug was wired for something that needed a 220 amps. Back at home n plugged it in where I know it works and its still doing the same thing. I have a surge guard rv power protector on it. I've checked the breakers insidePosted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.Is there a surge switch that may have tripped
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 6 years ago

If you plugged into a 220volt outlet, it probably fried the automatic transfer swtich, this is what changes your power automatically from shore power to gen power. I see you have a fleetwood what model is it? You talk about plugging into a 30 amp circuit does your coach have 30 or 50 amp service?

It has 50 amp but I have a reducer plug that allows access to 30 amps.2014 fleetwood excursion 35e
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 6 years ago

thanks with you adapating down to the 30 amp and plugging into the 220, was probably for a welder, Im sure your fried the auto transfer switch, now the next issue, where is it? I dont know for sure in your coach. it will normally be near or behind the distribution panel. mounted on the floor looks like this.. click here

going to be somewhere wired into the end of the shoreline, and the breaker panel

I dont know your model, but if you have a rear bed, lift the lid and look under

Surge guard model 40250-RVC 120/240 50A 60 Hz
RV Mechanic: Michael Reush, RV Technician replied 6 years ago

thanks that is the transfer switch............take the cover off, and with your volt meter, look at the schematic, you have red black white comming in, this is the 50 amp service each leg is 120vac against ground or the neutral. With it plugged in see if the power transfers thru the switch. Check the power out
