Hi Karen; Just read about your difficulties. First we will keep you and your family in our prayers. I am NOT an electrician so I will avoid any advice there; however, with regard to the Electrician.... Here in the state of Florida I (in the past) worked for the Dept of Business and Professional Regulations. They regulated some 27 Professions including all construction (which included electricians). If the electrician you hired was, if fact, licensed you may have some recourse there (sometimes even advising the electrician you will call the regulation agency will do the trick). If the "electrician" was NOT duly licensed IF THE LAWS ARE THE SAME AS FLORIDA.. then unlicensed contracting is a CRIME (Misd) and can be addressed by the local State Attorneys Office. Wish you all well....bill

Hi Karen, So sorry to hear of your father's health. We weill be thinking of you and your family during these times. Has someone checked to be sure that the circuits will push a load? I have ran across times when a circuit will push a volt meter but not real loads (circuit breaks down under a load). If you have 120 volts at a receptacle plug a hair dryer into it to verify it works. Also check to 12 volt DC side, as you will need 12 v DC for teh controls of the air conditioners, refrigerators and water heater to work. Hopefull it will be more simple like a bad transfer switch than to have a surge run into all the control boards. Good luck and keep us posted.

As I was reading this post the first thing I thought of was the transfer switch. (Same as RV Wizard said). A friend had the same thing happen and when I got there to check it out it was the transfer switch.

My thoughts and best wishes are with you also. I'm sorry I'm no help when it comes to electrical (except for checking breakers...), but I hope you find the answer soon! If there is major damage to the MH, I'd hold that electrician responsible. Good luck, and I hope your Dad is doing better.

Brenda, of

Karen here is the way to properly wire a 50A or 30A RV receptacle. I hope you've found a simple (inexpensive) explanation for the problem.

thank you for your posts. Well FINALLY my coach goes to the Monaco Service Center in Elkhart on Tuesday. Jeffrey is flying out Sunday and will drive it over there Monday afternoon.
Still hoping it is just the inverter and not fried wiring and fried appliances.
Will let the forum know as soon as we do.
Dad is actually doing a bit better today so we are praying he will recover but it's hard to say for certain.
