@ Mike Leary

None of the 115 volt outlets work when on generator power.

All 12 volt works fine.

All the way through the coach, bow to stern? Those are seperate circuits, pretty much split between the middle of the coach. Does the fridge go to 115 when the gen set is activated?

@ Mike Leary

With generator only, every 115 outlet in the entire coach was tested with the desk lamp; none worked.

The fridge works fine on shore power. On generator only, the fridge automatically switches to LP.

It should not, of course. If you've tried the breakers and the fuses at the gen set, AND, some of those coaches had a 50 amp fuse at the 12 volt panel that would blow if some strange thing happened between shore power and gen-set and you've checked that, I'd be thinking, so far, as has been mentioned, the transfer switch is haywire, or a wire has come free somewhere between the gen-set and the transfer switch. Is is odd that you can run your rear roof. Do the 115 outlets in the stern work on gen power?

Tomorrow morning, weather permitting, we'll try to pull off the front panel of the generator and check for the breakers; didn't originally realize there were two. The fact that the rear A/C functioned off the generator, originally led us to believe the problem was elsewhere.

No outlets work on generator power; all outlets work fine on shore power. Go figure.......

Is it an Onan gen-set and have you checked for the 50 amp fuse?

That is one cool gen set. I don't know what they changed since our's, which is a 6.5. But here's the two areas I'd be checking. The two little white buttons above are push-button-circuit breakers, the bottoms are actually real fuses. I've had the little white breakers trip many times when listening to the Moody Blues and had lights with roof-air going.

Nice and clean, but impossible to check the breakers, etc. except, what's the locked enclosure on the right of the gen set?

The panel to the right is for sewage tube storage.

According to the Onan booklet, the front panel of the GenSet is removable and the breakers are behind it.

We'll see.......

One would think there are just four screws; go for it it. Let us know.

Question

I'm just wondering... on my '95 you have to plug the shore power cable into the plug in the locker to get power from the generator.

Does the '04 work the same way?
