The inverter is not working when we are plugged into

Customer Question
The inverter is not...

The inverter is not working when we are plugged into electrical boxes at RV parks. We don't have use of our refrigerator or anything. We can't use the generator as we are hearing we need an oil change and new filter. We bought a 2017 Forza brand new.

Mechanic's Assistant: When was your last oil change?

For the generator? We have not changed oil yet in the generator, as we only have 9,000 miles. The Service light just came on and we will be changing the oil on Monday. Does that effect the inverter?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '17 RV?

Forza

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your RV yourself? What have you tried so far?

The oil will be done by an RV Dealership.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, we are very concerned about the electrical issue we have no way to charge cell phones, which is dangerous not to mention everything in the refrigerator will be thrown away!!!
