I have no power. I plugged it in and I tried the generator.

Customer Question
I have no power...

I have no power. I plugged it in and I tried the generator. Nothing. Only thing working is the fridge battery. Is there a main breaker I’m missing?

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

There isn’t anything. No fluctuating.

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

2012 coachmen rv. 24’

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

I actually have it at a festival. It worked fine last weekend, this weekend nothing

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

I don’t think so

What is the make and model of your generator? Did you check to see if the breaker(s) were tripped on that?

I asked you what is the make and model of your generator and did you check the breaker(s) on the set to see if they were tripped?

I did check the fuses I could get out
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
There were 3 breakers. Is there a main breaker?
RV Mechanic: Randall, RVIA Certification replied 2 months ago

IN the generator itself. One or two depending on the make and model.

This works better if you can answer my questions. What is the make and model of the generator?
