1995 Dolphin 32D

Hi eveyone,
Im the new owner of a 1995 Dolphin 32D diesel motorhome, as with any used motorhomes i expected to find a list of items that needed attention. my question for this forum is; the generator starts fine (6000 watt), its runs the two roof air conditioners, but power to all other appliances is off, i have used a volt meter on the two breakers located on the generator and both show power from both sides of the breakers, i have also went to the ac breaker panel to test and there is no voltage, but the ac is still working ( makes me think there is another breaker box hidden), with generator off and plugged into shore power all systems are on. Im perplexed, if you have any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I solved the problem after close examination of the power cord bay, the power cord led to a j box that had a plug receptacle, I couldn't imagine what that was for and then I thought maybe the generator power is routed to that j box and when not plugged into shore power you plug into the j box to receive power from the generator, I tried it and all came to life.

welcome. Probably a second breaker box. Had similar situation and found a transfer box behind a drawer. Seems they hide stuff anywhere in a MoHo.
happy hunting
