Red face 2007 Concord Elect. problem

I just bought a 2007 Coachmen Concord 275, drove it home and now there is no coach power - to anything. I checked the house batteries, they're fully charged, the 30 amp power cord is plugged into the storage receptable, I reset the circuit breakers (didn't reset the fuses since all power is off). Power is available running the generator. What should I check next?

A little unclear.........your last sentence: " Power is available running the generator.". Does that mean it operates normally on gen? Or are you saying you have 120vac on gen?

Your coach has two separate electric systems: one is 120vac supplied by either gen or shore. The other is 12vdc supplied by your house batteries. Which are you having a problem with?

If you have no 12vdc power into the coach while connected to shore or on gen then you should check the battery disco switch which should be near the door.

The 120v system works both on shore power and on the generator. The 12v switch near the entrance door doesn't seem to do anything when I toggle it on/off and the small "power" available green light doesn't light up in either position. Does this indicate the switch needs to be replace?

The switch you refer to controls a relay. That relay (solenoid) connects / disconnects the batteries from the coach 12vdc system. That relay is not making (or breaking) contacts. It could be the solenoid coil or the contactors inside the solenoid. T test you can jump across the two large lugs.......if that restores power then the contactors in the solenoid need to be either cleaned or replaced. Or just replace the entire solenoid.

I'll try your suggestion - thanks a lot.
