Customer Question
I have a 2003...

I have a 2003 Brave. We got back home Now generator will not turn over and only plugs work when shore line is plugged in, no refridge, no air, no heat. What happened?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked to make sure the thermostat is working? What about the coolant level?

No, but why is that?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '03 RV?

Brave 32V

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

Checked voltage of batteries, flipped switches at generator

S​orry for the delay in someone getting to your question! Did you check the breakers on your inverter/charger? And is it possible that the battery disconnect solenoid switch got hit by mistake and took the batteries offline? That can happen and will keep all your 12 VDC from working which powers up most control boards on those items you mentioned. It might be something else and we can check for that if you have or can get a small digital multimeter for some testing. All follow ups are included in our fee. No time limit.
