Started the Genny up to exercise it and no electricity. Came back in the house to get my glasses and remembered I had read that there was a circuit breaker on the Genny. Opened the bonnett and its like a light switch, turned it to on and my volt meter lit right up. Evidently the dealer had turned it to off to service the Genny.
Another case where reading the forum and posts by some of our KNOWLEDGEABLE members, solved the problem . Thank you to the smart ones(you know who you are) and Irv2.com. Good Miles to all

An old saying about airplane system trouble-shooting:

"Check your switches; check your circuit breakers"

Just as Ichn did. Good news. Sometimes can save some grief.

Always think the worst first.
It's hard for me not to do that.
On the first outing of our new '05 Itasca Horizon, the generator would start, but no electricity. The circuit breaker did not trip and all fuses that I could get to easily looked good. Of course it was July and hotter than a fire cracker, so I looked in the manual and there is a blade type fuse behind the circuit breaker that had blown. I replaced it, thanks to my brother and have not had a problem since.
Always keep a supply of various fuses.
