location of auto power transfer switch.

I have a 84 fleetwood southwind and ive got power leaving the generator but not making it to the circuit breaker panel. Iwas wondering if there is an auto tranfer switch and if so where would it be located?

Thanks Jim

I recently had a problem with my generator like that. Maybe the same?

Look and see if you can find a circut breaker on the Gen-Set it's self. Just a thought.
Good Luck

2 possibilities to check first.

One, the power cord may need to be plugged into a socket in the generator compartment before it can power the coach (common in older units)

or two; the circuit breaker(s) on the gennie itself- usually 2 little toggles marked 30 and 20- may be popped.

Have you checked whether the gennie is actually producing voltage? Or is it just that the engine is running?

You can get manuals from the Cummins/Onan website for your model generator; more helpful than anything Fleetwood can send you.
