Electric to coach problem

The transfer switch was shot on my 05 country coach inspire. I replaced the transfer switch, verified I have power coming out, but still no power to coach.
I tried the generator, still no power to coach, then engaged inverter with power disconnected and it delivered power for 30 seconds then came up "fault." What is wrong? Thanks for any help...

Get a volt meter and start taking measurements.

Start at load center, work from there.

Search forum for ac power troubleshooting for ideas.

Check wiring diagram and check the voltage at points from source to final load

Thank you Tony and Lori. I appreciate the help, was hoping there was a specific weakness in wiring or breakers that others may have experienced. Will continue my search. Jerry

Specific weakness is usually the human touch...

Loose wire or bad modification.

Ours is built very well, problems we have had that are few are user mods done poorly.

Be carefull.and sneak up on measurements, it should not take long at all to locate the problem, measure at major points to isolate large blocks then follow the bad readings.

Start at load center, check for voltage at mains, no voltage then ATS, no voltage check cord...

If you can get to places to measure the voltages you can check everything in about 5 minutes or less to determine the block of the system that is bad.

Then look close to see exactly what is wrong and repair takes longer...

Do you have any AC power passing thru to the coach or just not to circuits on the inverter? For example, do the air conditioners work but not the fridge, TV's, etc. When my inverter started to go into a fault condition, it would not pass any AC voltage to any of the circuits wired to the inverter. My air conditioners would run but fridge and TV's would not.

The inverter has an internal transfer switch that will sense incoming AC from shore power or genset and pass that AC thru to the coach. If the inverter goes into a fault condition (mine had overheating FET's), its transfer switch will not work. Try re-setting the inverter and see if you get power.

I had to replace the inverter.

Good to hear that you are back on the road, we may be heading down to the coast next week also, so what inverter did you go back with. Just did a switch from the Xantrex 458 to the Magnum 2812. The big reason the wife does a lot of sewing and the MSW is bad on the motors plus it's better on my new Samsung frig.
