Angry Power outage on a 2000 Dutchstar

Yesterday while coming home from Jacksonville, I stopped and to a nap because I was tired. The generator was running to cool the coach. It suddenly shut down and would not start back up. Push the start button inside and on the generator outside and I get nothing. The slide outs, refrigerator, inside lights, fog lights and AC will not work since then. All circuit breakers that I know of and fuses have been checked with a ohm meter everything seems ok. Does anybody have any ideas?

If you have an Onan have you read the code which should give you a clue unless you are below the ~1/4 fuel level pickup?

You lost 12 volts to the house somewhere.

Lights, fridge, slides and generator need 12 volts to work.

You have a ohm meter, have you checked volts at the batteries and then moved on from there. Follow the power.

Cool Generator down

Sorry being late getting back. I found out several things since I last wrote. One the generator isnít a Onan but a Power Tech. I didnít get any records when it was changed out. The power to the starter had a broken wire and that is why it wouldnít start. The other problems were because the switch to shut off the power when storing the motor home was shut off. Thanks for all of your help.
