What type of generator, RV? Do you have a automatic switcher that changes from shore (cord) power to the generator? If not, you might have to physically plug the Generator into the RV 120 v system.

My transfer switch has a delay built in when it switches from one to the other. Saves the A/C from a high pressure restart. Does everything work on shore power? If so, check the output of the generator directly at the generator CB panel. Using the 'Stop' button on the Generator, press it three times to get a blinking fault code. If you don't have the manual, you can download it here: Cummins Onan

Check this forum as well:

Onan Generators - SmokStak

It has been a godsend for me and my Marquis 7000 issues.

Good luck with it.

I just fixed my 1988 pa ,same problem ,no 120v on genny side.
your problem is in the converter under fridge, take off cover make sure you are not plugged in shore power,start genny, carefully with a wooden stick push and hold in transfer switch,watch microwave as a guide you should get power if so your switch is gone.
i ordered new switch and delay /pot bridge now combined switch for $104.00 from progressive dynamics in the states replaced as per instructions and problem solved
If wooden stick works post your e-mail and i will send pictures of switch and info i have .

I have an Onan Emerald and it has what is called an AC (Alternating Current) switch on the right hand side. of the generator. back to you for off and in for on. If you have one, you do not need to turn it off and on when switching to generator power or back to city. Just make sure there is no load on the generator when you start it. (No A/C, Microwave, etc)

Edit: I meant to mention, the 12 volts is coming from the batteries.
