Question about Electrical Supplies
It will not start because the generator is overloaded before it is even started. I suspect there is a short circuit in the power converter. Disconnect the converter and see if the engine will start then. If there is serious overload when you reconnect, you will know where the problem is. It will probably trip a breaker or blow a fuse then. If you narrow the problem to the converter, write back and I can help you with this too.

The problem is that you are not creating voltage. Remove front cover. Place a volt meter on the breaker. Start genset and you will see no voltage present. The problem could be with the brushes, rings, rotor, stator, voltage regulator, or control board.

First locate the oil pressure switch and see if you can bypass it,then see if it runs. If not check the fuel filter and fuel pump,make sure solonoid for fuel pump is kicking on.

Either you have a kill wire ( if I remember it is the brown wire) that is disconnected on one end or the other Or your in coach switch is bad.
Check the switch this way
Remove the switch from the dash/ mounting surface unplug the brown wire - start the genset - ground the brown wire - it should kill the motor
If it kills the motor your switch is bad

At the controller, you need to see if it is actually sending electricity out of the Generator/Alternator, have a look where the leads from the power making unit mates, (Think of it as a motor in reverse) onto the board. There should be an AC Voltage there, then, work back, or out from there, trace the Voltage until it stops, thats the problem... Check the Breaker isn't tripped or faulty too.
