Customer Question
I have 2002 Holiday...

I have 2002 Holiday Rambler Endeveor diesel unit. The shore power and Generator don’t give any power to outlets of microwave, but if I turn on Inverter I have power. But now the batteries are dead and nothing is charging them up

Mechanic's Assistant: Did you test the battery with a voltmeter? And have you ever changed one before?

I just bought the unit from a trusted friend and he put in all new batteries recently and he just got back from a trip and no issues

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

2002 Holiday Rambler. Endeavor model. 40’ diesel

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

I’m on trip out west and can do myself if need be

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.

I’m currently parked at a site with no electricity so we are running the generator for AC units but are house batteries are dead and no outlets work

Good Morning ,

Do you have a voltmeter to check things ,

It sounds like you may be missing half of the 50 amp service, i would check where power comes into the unit at the generator transfer switch . if that is good then i wold check for power at the circuit breakers and make sure none of them are tripped

I do but honestly not sure how to run it
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

you want to check for ac 120 volt power , if you aren't comfortable checking the outlets with a voltmeter,

then i wouldn't recommend you messing around inside the breaker panel and transfer switch .

here is a basic video on  troubleshooting power coming in . but you have a transfer switch as well as what is discussed in the video

OK I checked it and yes I have 125 V coming in from the generator to the transfer switch and I have 125 going out of the transfer switch to the breaker box
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
This is right beside it
RV Mechanic: Nachum Wagschal, RV Mechanic replied 1 year ago

that is you breaker panel ,   next to it is your 12 volt  fuses .

if everything is working off of the inverter there must be  another switch to switch those from inverter power to shore power

Ya I tried that all. What I can't figure out is shore power and Generator do not give any power to TVs, outlets or Microwave but if I turn on inverter they all workBut inverter doesn't work because battery bank is low and it doesn't seam to be charging
