No Air Cond or Washer/Dryer power from shore line.

I have no power to the air conditioner or washer/dryer with the shoreline plugged in (there is power on the shoreline), I can start the generator and have power to the Air conditioners and washer/dryer, and when I shut the generator down, I lose all power to the AC and washer/dryer. Anyone know what is the problem?

Thanks,

My guess is that you have lost power on one of the two "hot legs" of a 50A shore power cord. Either the cord, the receptacle it plugs to, or the transfer switch in the coach will likely be the problem.

Found problem

I was checking breakers again, removed panel cover (no power on) and checked continuity of breakers, all checked good. Powered up on shoreline and checked voltage on each breaker, all checked good. Turned power off to from shoreline and then did a pull check on all wiring (should have done this first), I found both hot wires (black) going to the 50 amp breakers (two breakers tied together) loose, they were so loose they pulled out with no effort (these are 6 guage wires), I reinserted them and tightened them down and also found a 20 amp breaker wire loose too (wash/dryer) I checked all wires and tightened all of them. Plugged in shoreline cable and checked Air Conditioners and washer/dryer, all worked. Thanks for all of the info and guidance on this issue. I appreciate the help.

Thanks,

Joe Payton
