No power on shorepower

Everything works when running on generator but if I plug into 30 amp nothing works

I've checked the breakers fuses and GFI receptacle and replaced it but still no power. Any ideas??

Was the breaker on? I hit the switch on and off before plugging in my surge protector, just in case there is corrosion built up. I've "dorked" it up once with not turning it back on when I plugged back in.......

Is it possible that I have a bad wire to the GFI or just bought another bad one

All the breakers and fuses seem fine my next step is to replace the 15 amp breaker powering the GFI

With it all working on Gen. 1 Auto Transfer switch or power from pole, power or power cord. If everything is working on the Gen the coach from the distribution box through the auto transfer is OK. The default on the auto transfer switch is the Gen. Could be loose wire in transfer switch.

What works on generator power ? The sockets have no power, what works? Does the air conditioner or the microwave work?

your transfer switch is not working or the power cord is shorted. Most of the time it is the transfer switch. If you are comfortable working with 120 volts, remove cover and check for 120 volts at the transfer switch cord attachment. If you have 120 volts, check if you have 120 volts at the output side of the switch.

It looks like the OP has a 2014 Thor freedom elite 26T. I would be surprised if it has a transfer switch.

Fuse,

I think you're going to have to be a little more clear if you want help.

I've read through the post a couple of times and still can't tell what is working or not.

It appears; You never have any AC at your outlets. Is this correct?

You only have DC when the generator is running? This doesn't seem possible if you have good batteries.

It is a relatively simple process to start at the campground outlet measuring for voltage, moving to the transfer switch checking both the shore cable in and the main feed out. At that point, moving on the your inside breaker panel. Using a meter checking along the way the problem will become obvious.

Okay folks had the most wonderful mobile rv guy. We had the GFI wired wrong. And a bad surge protector. So $75 for visit and he drove almost two hrs to get to me and a bad surge protector that I have reordered to the tune of $230. All is working thank you for your suggestions. All we're appreciated.

I'm glad to hear that your issues have been resolved, and equally glad that you posted what your problems were. So many people ask for help or ideas, but never follow up with the outcome.
