Get your manual out or Google it. They have a code system for diagnosis. Sometimes it's a blinky light code or a numeric code. It depends on the model and year. There are several sensors on the right side of the generator that could be a cause of your problems.
Good Luck

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

Don't have a solution for that one. Just noticed that you are kinda new on IRV2 and wanted to say hello! Have fun and keep her between the ditches!

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

The generator should run the inverter/charger. That would keep the house batteries up.

You could try using a 10 amp charger, plugged into a generator outlet, on the house batteries if your inverter/charger isn't working.
