2016 Palazzo 36.1 Electrical Issue

Plugging into shore power with 50 amp cord, no 115vac in MH. Using same cord, and using 30 amp adapter, I have 115vac in MH. Using volt/ohm meter, cord test out ok. This has happened in last two RV campgrounds. Suggestions?

Welcome to iRV2.

I'll assume that you tested both power posts for proper voltage at the 50 amp plug , and that the previous person in the site didn't turn the, 50 amp circuit breakers off, while the 30 amp was still on.

I have a 2018 Holiday Rambler Navigator XE 36U which is basically the same unit as the Pace Arrow 36U. They're twin sisters. Mine has the B6.7L 340 HP. 9000 miles on it so far and am averaging 10.32 mpg towing a 2013 Ford C-Max that weighs around 3500 lbs. I'm rarely in a hurry and run about 60-62 mph. Hope that helps.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Noticed you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello. It sounds like the power cable may be bad or wired wrong. Has it ever work correctly? Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

50 amp plug

I have had the top round pin not making contact inside the parks receptacle. Several times I noticed the receptacle part opened (expanded) not making contact to my plug pin. I also adapted to ty he 30 amp and no problems

Make sure your green wire goes to the green, ground screw in the plug.

White to neutral, silver screw same place.

The only thought I have is that an ohm meter needs a conductive path 1/1000 of an inch to see strand.. 120VAC needs a lot more to power a motorhome. IE, continuity is not proof the AC will flow.... If it shows NO continuity that's evidence.

But, like all things electrical it's a simple process of elimination. Switch the meter to VAC and take the lid off the transfer switch and poke around... then the breaker panel etc etc.

We can't do that from here.

I didn't see if you figured out problem or not. Easiest way I could tell you is to plug your cord into 50 amp and check power at end of cord if it has 220 then problem is in your transfer switch
