Welcome, Are you talking about 110 power, for the microwave, and the plugs or for the lights (12volt)?
For the 110 power, it comes from the generator or when you are plugged in! The other way you can get it is to install a inverter, which converts battery power to 110!
When your generator is running, it is the same as when you are plugged in, the power goes to a converter, which converts the 110 to 12 volts, powers the lights, charges the batterys, and so on!
On older coaches, some have automatic switch's built into the converter box, some have a plug in the gen. or power cord compartment that you have to plug your power cord into, when you use the generator! Check to see which your coach has, it may be as simple as plugging your power cord into the outlet in the same compartment! Hope this helps, but if everything works just fine when you are plugged into campground power, and when you start your generator, nothing happens, check to see if you do have that plug, and plug your power cord into it, and you should be fine!
