Inverters? 1999 pacearrow

HELP- we have a *major problem* with Elec. 1999 Pacearrow
was connected to shore power and started the generator, then shut the generator off, added a little oil, restarted and ran for 2 min, shut it off, 10 min later (the NEW a/cs were running) then the system shut down, the ECC said Load Shed, now nothing works on 110- i tested each plug with a circuit tester, every socket says Hot and Ground reversed.. No neutral thru out the MH

Found ONE GFI in the bathroom, cant find another - did voltage test at the main breaker above the ref... 120 V AC between the ground and the hot.

ZERO voltage between neutral and hot on all circuits

no 110-120v because of no neutral, but where or why?? Can anyone help ?

This is a used MH and we have not even taken it on the road... bought from estate... no knowledge... we dont know where the inverter/converters are located , , can anyone help?? thx

Iím not much help, I have a thread asking for help on my inverter. But usually the inverters are located somewhere they can get air. Mine is in a compartment above my generaters. They can also be located near the batteries. But as for your problem, it sounds like you have developed a bad connection somewhere. The only way to find it is to look for it, usually start at your shore power plug in, the main disturbution box and the individual circuits. Hope this little bit of info helps.

The converter on my 1997 Fleet-wood Southwind is located under the fridge in a hallway behind a vented wooden door. The circuit breakers and some fuses are also located here. Good luck, I hope you find the solution quickly and easily.
