sgtpappy1,

Welcome to the FMCA Forum.

Look where the shore power comes into the coach.  It will either go to an ATS OR, there will be a pigtail that would allow you to manually plug generator cord into it on its way to the main 120 VAC breaker box.

Assuming the generator is putting out 120 VAC, either an ATS or manual box where you plug in either shore power or generator are the two ways it could be wired.

In a 28' Allegro 1997, the ATS was in the sink cabinet.  In the 2010 AC you have to lift the bed to get at it.  They hide them in the strangest places!

sgtpappy1, Welcome to the forum. One thing to do is to make shure there are no tripped circuit breakers on  the generator. Follow the cord from the generator to where it hooks into the coach. This will be the Auto Transfer Switch or the manual box. You can follow back the shore power cord to where it connects to the coach.

Do you have power when the coach is plugged into shore power?

Bill

You should not have to get underneath to check for an automatic transfer switch or change power plugs from shore to genset. There must be a switch to change from shore to genset or plugs to change, there are no other electrical choices. If one source fed the other, exciting things would happen very quickly.
