I have no power in my coach and the generator won't turn on…

I have no power...

I have no power in my coach and the generator won't turn on and I'm not getting a clicking noise on the generator

Mechanic's Assistant: Is the power loss consistent, or does it fluctuate?

It's consistent and I'm plugged into the house and it's still not working

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

Fleetwood Tioga 2004

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

I'm just trying to determine what's wrong and then it'll let me know whether I need a mechanic

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

There's absolutely no power refrigerator won't turn on even though I'm plugged into the house I've checked the breaker for the house the Jenna Wade generator isn't clicking turning over nothing even when I try to start at the generator there's absolutely no power I reset the breakers inside the motor coach and that didn't help either

Hi, my name is ***** ***** most likely have a bad inverter, when this happens, the shore power will not reach the batteries, thus they will discharge, and even though its plugged in, the inverter will not allow power to the 12 volt system, have you checked for voltage at the house batteries yet?
