Second opinion] I have some electrical issues. It's a 2018 Jayco 5th wheel. Wired for 110/240. I've used the 240 with my Honda generator for the past couple of years. Wednesday I hooked to a 30 amp 220 power source. Tripped my breaker to my electrical water heater. Then noticed that my fireplace was WAY to aggressive. Noticed that all my outlets were 220 instead of 110. Then, my refigerator will not work on 110. Then I found that my batteries are not charging. All my other 12v circuits are working fine. With a tester I find that when I have it hooked to the 220 source all my sub-breakers are receiving 220 when they should be 110. Help please

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the coolant level? Has there been any leaking from the hoses?

Serciously?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '18 Honda?

I want to chat with a person please

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