If you are referring to a Trace 2412 inverter, which series is it? An SW or a DR series? In either case, if it won't accept generator power, but the AC input indicator is flashing, the problem is most likely the generator output power is off frequency or voltage. Trace inverters will only connect when the AC input is within certain limits. I'd suggest checking the frequency and voltage output of the generator. If it won't connect to shore power, check the voltage from that source. Make the voltage checks at the inverter input terminals.

I have 2015 WINNEBAGO Sightseer when the generator is on I doesn't power up any appliances What is the problem?


You didn't indicate, but I will assume when plugged into park power your 110V AC devices (Outlets/TVs/Microwave) work?

If so that isolates it to the genset or something up to your AC/Breaker distribution panel.

Things to check in the main power from the generator to electrical main AC distribution/breaker panel:.
Some type of Breaker off at the Genset (Blown fuse?)
Some type of toggle switch/transfer switch on the wrong position
If you have a auto transfer switch it might be stuck or defective
Loose connection or a connector coming loose
Defective wiring

No power on Cyclone 4100


Do you have power at the outlet where the unit is plugged in? If not restore power to that point. Next, check the main breaker to determine if it has tripped. It may look like it is on but to verify, turn it off and then back on. It should click into place. If that does not work and your trailer has a genset with a transfer switch. Check the transfer switch to make sure that it has not failed. It may be locked into the genset side and not switching back to shore power. If you are running the genset and do not have power make sure the breakers on the front of the genset are on.

I have the same problem but on an intermittent basis. The first time it happened the tech suggested resetting the default settings and it came on immediately. However the problem has been reoccuring from time to time and I now have no confidence in my one month old unit.

check the system but you may have to turn off the batteries
the inverter is charging the batteries but when mains power fails , the batteries will be discharging back through the inverter that is dc converted back to ac
if you power on a genset and the ac is not phased correctly, what you describe will happen--- inverter ac from the batteries against genset ac to the inverter-
If you had mains power on then it would dead stop the genset because of the out of phase situation
it all has to do with the 2 wave patterns for ac current from each unit being in harmony and not working against each other

Freedom 20 stops passing good AC input after about 15 sec.


This unit does have an idle mode where it will not output without a load. What I am unsure of is if this exists only for invert mode or for both invert and pass through. Try reprogramming the remote to eliminate the idle feature and then see what happens.

Depends on wattage demand of ac unit. VXA=W 110x20amps=2,0200 Watts. A 2,00 watt generator is too small. Best go for a 3,kw genset. A 5 kw will leave you room to run appliances and the ac simultaneously., otherwise you will need to watch your margin usage. I think 4.5 kw gensets are also available. Happy trails.

Converting the power to genertor


You should not have to switch between battery and generator, unless you are trying to use an inverter as well. Batteries are 12vdc, typically run lighting, water pump, furnace, fridge controls. Generator powers ac, microwave, television, and anything else that plugs into a 120vac wall outlet. Inverter may also run select loads, and possibly dedicated wall outlets, but not AC, fridge, or microwave (usually).

Most RVs / Motorhomes now have automatic transfer switches that will switch between the generator, shorepower, and possibly an inverter. Your coach is made during an era of transition from manual transfer switch (in form of heavy duty electrical outlet near shore power cord) and the automatic transfer switch.

There is no specific place where a transfer switch or generator receptacle are mounted on an RV. There are no rules or regulations tha cover this as far as I know. Your RV may also have an EMS (Energy Management System) that will control the transfer switch as well. EMS panels are typically located above the refrigerator or above driver / passenger seats in overhead compartment.
