Ok....now check your GFCI outlets and make certain they are not tripped.

I have one in my bath and one in the area of the kitchen.

There is a popout circuit breaker of 30amp, on the backside of the inverter itself. I assume this is down in one of your bays. You may have to lay on your back and crawl in a little bit to see it, assuming it's mounted on the ceiling of the bay.

Push that breaker back in.

Were you able to restore your AC power to the coach?

No, the only way I can get AC power is to turn inverter on.

Good morning,

Just verifying the 30 amp breaker on the inverter itself is pushed in? (See photo)

Also, check the breaker for the inverter in your main AC breaker panel and flip it off and back on again.

By what you are describing, your getting AC power when the inverter is ON because the inverter is working and converting AC power from DC side (batteries)

With that being said, the issue appears to be on the AC side of the equation.

No. Last time there everything worked as before. No issues. Cost me $150.00 service call, only there was no problem.
Donít you just hate when that happens.

Go to "user CP" and put that info in your signature line and you'll never have to type it again. It will appear everytime you post. Just like what you see below the slolid line here.

That's good. However, when time permits, examine your power cord plug for any signs of overheating around the prongs.

Then (with power off) check your AC connections (wire nuts) in the junction box that ties your power cord to the transfer switch.

Next, make sure all your connections inside the transfer switch and the inverter are nice and tight and look for signs of any arcing.

Lastly, check your main breaker panel and make certain all the connections there are snug too.

This, of course, is only if the service tech didn't do it when he came out.

A loose connection, wire nut, or partially broken wire creates heat (resistance) and would cause a "High ACV" fault.

Better to be safe......hope this helps.
