Forgot to mention this earlier, but this morning I left the coach for about two hours and when I came back to the coach the genset was running.
I went and checked the surge protector for a fault and didn't find anything out of the ordinary....
Coach has been plugged into 50A service since arriving here Friday morning....
Battery charge parameter is set at 11.7, but I always thought the charger would work on 50A service as well...

Any ideas?

Correction...voltage parameter is set at 11.4

Paul....not sure what temp gauge you're referring to?

Roger, no fault with the surge protector so I'm not thinking there was a power loss...

Hi Bob! Which invertor do you have? The Magnum has a panel in the bathroom cabinet that allows you to set the genset to come on, among other setings, if the temp in the coach rises above the preset number. Paul

Hi! When I have been plugged in, a few times my genset started. I presumed that my volts dropped below 11.4 At those times I had forgot to push the charge button on my panel (Magnum invertor) Paul

Paul, I remember the panel you're speaking of as it's in the cabinet of my buddy Jeff's '06 MADP but I have no such panel,just a bunch of fuses in my toilet room cabinet....

Hmmm....checked the settings and the inverter and the charger are both on as well and there's a float charge indication...

Again...won't the batteries charge off the 50A,or would that have been the reason the genset came on?

The inverter is a Magnum and it will charge on any amp input of 15 to 50 amps.
Bob, I'm sure it was a power interuption in the park.

I had resolved myself to a power interruption as well,save for the fact the surge protector never showed a fault....

Thanks for all the ideas....
