marquis 7000 gen problem

Hello,
Had a wonderful vacation to Durango, Co. No troubles ! But....the generator quit allowing operation of both ac units at the same time. The front will work, & the back will work fine, only one at a time (like on shore power).

Is there some kind of switch or relay that I can locate myself and replace ??

Have you checked both circuit breakers on the Generator?

You may have a switch marked front/both/rear or similar. If it's set on "rear" you might have what you're describing.

Also, on mine anyway, if I don't shut the shore power down prior to firing up the generator, it will act similar to what you're describing.

Thanks ga traveler. I found those 2 switches on the side of the generator. One was tripped (probably happened when I started the generator with both the ACs in the on position). I reset it, and now all is well.

Read my Bounder owner's manual, and it said to start generator with everything 'off', and wait a couple of minutes before turning on the AC.

105*F today in the Mojave Desert. Like to keep inside of MH about 75*F.

Took teenage granddaughter out 4x4ing today in the Nissan truck. Good thing the AC blows cold in it. Had a GREAT time.

Thanks again folks.
