a bit clearer tom, but i'm still not clever enough to interpret.
IF the 110v is "shorted" that should be fixed.
many things can cause a short
(if by short u mean cooked/now misdirected connection)
OFTEN factory INSTALLER errors lead to 'shorts'
once the rig is used or moved much (lottsa looose wires or too long screws, screwed INto things..)
the original question was ""WHAT black magic in a hon' genset broked the trailer, and the tech guy said ...""
see post #2.
it's virtually impossible to guess at what PARTS are on your unit without the spec sheet.
these isn't usually ANY '110 power' when not plugged in or running a generator...
unless an INVERTER is present.
the inverter makes gold from the straw in a battery.
we now know there is a gen prep package on your rig, but not much else.
is there also an inverter?
is there solar?
what batteries and so on?
there are 'switches' all over the place...
pick an item it's got 'switches'.
p'lax makes the charger/converter, but not the inverter, or gen prep page parts.
there are breakers to flip or reset, gfi stuff, and all sorts of mysterious goodies...
it's under warranty so you got a year or 2 for them to FIX stuff, while u learn what is what.
it's still not clear, what if ANYTHING the gensets have to do with this.
sometimes the capacity of gizmos exceed the capacity of gizm'owners...
this leads to all sorts of shorts, chickens and eggs.
best o luck!
