2018 Interstate Lounge Generator Circuit Breaker

Have a 2018 with built in Cummins generator.
I also have the touch screen panel.
In pressing the start button for the generator, nothing happens. I can hear the relay kick in, but no cranking whatsoever.
House batteries are good and show at 13+ volts.
Is there a circuit breaker on the generator itself?
How do you access it if so?
Anyone have a picture of how to get to it?

Do you have your propane on? And do you have propane? If it’s been a while since the propane has been on it could take a bit for the lines to fill. Our 2017 AI cranks right up, but we have a switch that you hold to start.

On my 2013 there is a circuit breaker on the generator. Remove the panel that you use to check the oil. I believe that it is on the lower right as you reach into the access hole. But from what I recall reading, that breaker keeps the generator from providing power, not from starting. You might check the battery cables - especially where they connect to the generator. The click that you hear might be the started solenoid engaging, but poor batter connections keep it from turning over. Like a car with a nearly-dead battery.

While you have the cover off and are right next to the dip stick .... check the oil level. A lot of these generators have an oil level switch. It shuts everything down.
