Check the in-line fuse on the 12 volt battery positive battery cable to see if it's blown.

Replaced coach batteries and still not working


There is a relay that operates when you hook up to shore power that switches from battery power to converter power. It also charges the batteries. If you do not have battery power then suspect a faulty relay. It is located inside the power converter.

2012 Thor Challenger 36FD; Auxiliary batteries went dead, tv recepticals and generation not kicking on. Charged batteries, but no change. Is there a reset button or maybe a fuse that I might need to...


If the unit has a transfer switch that switched between generator and shore power you need to look at that since nothing is working with the unit plugged into shore power. There may also bee a few battery disconnect switches close to the batteries. In that system there should also be a few inline circuit breakers. If they have tripped they will need to be reset. To determine if they have tripped you will need to look at the circuit breaker and see if there is a small black lever hanging down. If there is, slide it back up and it will lock back into place and should restore power. Without actually seeing the coach and the power configuration it is difficult to determine exactly the problem. Hope this helps.

No electricity while using battery power


You will not have electricity while on battery power. Two different systems. Electric is 110VAC and battery is 12VDC. If on battery power the lights will work, the furnace will work (LP gas and 12v blower motor), the refrigerator will work (LP gas and 12v power for circuit boards) and the water heater will work (LP gas and 12v power for circuit board). The only way to have electricity while on battery is to install an inverter but you will need extra batterys and still will not have enough power to run the AC for any extended length of time.

Trace, no power from line one from either gen set or shore power. Have rebooted, and when I invert the coach works normal. Charge system to house and coach batts perfec


If a normal install, the shore power and generator will go through a transfer switch then to the inverter. If when inverting 120 VAC circuits are OK, then the problem must be before the inverter. I would suspect that it is the transfer switch.

Disconnect shore power, make sure generator in NOT running then take a look at the transfer switch these are in a boat or RV but either can lead to vibration problems which can lead to loosening wire connections which can lead to heating and burning. It may be something as simple as a wire coming loose. (Which could be dangerous!)
Whether or not the contacts in the relays are OK, check and/or tighten all electrical connections. It's a good idea to check and tighten all electrical connections regularly.

Some transfer switches can be repaired by replacing just the relays. Other units (like mine this year!) will need to be replaced entirely.

I take it you metered for voltage at the shore power outlet, and at the cord end itself where it plugs into the RV, is there a buck/boost transformer..if so does it have a breaker, are there fuses at the inlet receptacle. Are all GFI outlet breakers in the RV checked for normal position?

Winnabego 2006 how to turn on TV, using generator


Start generator, allow a few minutes to warm up.

If everything works as it should, you should now have AC power in the coach (look at microwave, air conditioner, etc). If not, then start checking the breakers.

If the breakers are on, then go to the generator compartment, open it, and check the breakers on the generator itself. If those are on, then your transfer switch has likely failed.

Some appliances don't like the power that is produced by a generator due to the unsteady nature of frequency (it starts high, and drops as loads are added). If the TV works on shore power, and not when generator is powering the coach (and other 120vac appliances work), this is probably what is going on.

Although tradesman moterhomde plugged into electrical, engine's battery loses power, any suggestions as to why?


I am assuning you have an operation (read "working") isolation switch in your system. Such a switch (mechanical or electronic) will isolate your coach battery from your chassis batery. If you dont drive the vehicle often, it is possible for your chassis battery to go dead while the coach battery remains in tip top condition. (Coach is always on "charge". Im going to guess your chassis battery is not new.

Of course when you drive, you charge the chassis battery and in some installations, you also charge the coach battery. You dont want the coach battery to run the chassis - think about it and you will understand why. Other installations provide a switch that will allow you to start the vehicle with the coach battery if required.

If you dont go out often, consider a small trickle charger for your chassis battery. Since you keep your motor home plugged in, you have 110 V AC power available in the coach. Just plug your small trickle charger into the motor home and charge your chassis battery. Remember to disconnect the charger before you start the coach.

Safe travels. Let me know if this helps.

Magic Chef Microwave Shutting Down Problem in RV


your micrwave may run fine at 110 but it draws more power than the generator is putting out when the magnetron kicks on which is the part that creates the microwave causing the food to heat up. In other words the amperage is too low for the microwave. Amperage is what matters not voltage.

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.
