Have you checked the circuit breakers on the generator itself? Then the transfer switch. Then breakers inside the coach.

Should be able to find the manual here;
Index of /~n0nas/manuals/onan

I think they meant the model/make of the generator.

Likely breakers, transfer switch. The good news is if it's an Onan it's probably making AC power. Many of the onan's won't stay running if it's not making AC.

I always started with the easist thing. First the breakers in the motorhome. Next the breakers on the generator. Next was the transfer box, if it was not buried. If it was hard to get to, I would check for voltage by removing the cover in the generator compartment. If I had voltage there, I would go next to the transfer switch. Check for voltage going into the box and also going out. By this time I had usually found the problem. If not, I would check the breaker box in the motorhome for loose wiring. If you have power from the land line, that pretty much tells you the wiring from the changeover box to the breaker box is O.K.
