Sterling RV 1989 manual needed

Anyone have a Sterling Class C RV manual handy? It's a 1989 model. We're trying to figure out how to get coach power when we're not plugged in to shore power. Thanks.

There is a Facebook page for Sterling Motorhome Owners. The "About" page has this information. Don't know if they might be able to help.

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!
Rail!

Thanks, 53! I was talking about a 12 volt problem. When not on shore power, there's no power to the coach. The RV has no generator. There's an extra battery under the hood that must be the coach battery; it tests as a good battery. Perhaps there's a switch somewhere that allows the coach battery to power the coach, but we can't find one.

You might look under the steps for the house battery's, as a lot of class C's have them there! And a disconnect switch might be flipped also? Hope this helps? Rail!
