Have a 99 fleetwood bounder. When plugged into generator or direct power source, I do not have power in the rv. What could cause this?

Welcome to iRV2.

Sorry your here with problems .
Problems with the cord, or the main circuit breaker are two possibles.
But first you should check both power sources with a volt meter .

Make sure any of your GFI outlets haven't tripped.

Tripped input breakers on your distribution panel could cause this, as well as loose wire connections, bad transfer switch, etc. If it isn't the breakers, you will need a voltmeter to troubleshoot it.

If you have an inverter/converter make sure the power light is on. All power goes thru the inverter.

GFI only affects the wall plugs.

Not true in our MH. We were at a quandary on why our power was not coming on from the post. Found out our GFI outlet had tripped. Reset and wha-la we had power!

I'm an electrician and I could write a book on why you have no power. You may want to hire an electrician or RV tech to trouble shoot.
