I am getting no power from my RV's generator
(Meigs County, Ohio)
I have a 1995 Gulf Stream Ultra. It does not have an automatic power transfer switch- you must plug the RV power cord into the generator outlet or plug the cord into shore power. The problem I’m having is that 50% of the time, there is no power from the generator to the outlet. If I turn the breakers on the generator on and off, cross my fingers, then I will get power to the outlet. Sometimes not.Protect your RV and your family while on the road: Join Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service Today and save!
I have thoroughly checked the breakers on the generator and am 80% sure its not the breakers. Any other suggestions, then? Thank you for any help you could give me!
ANSWER: Greetings Savoy thanks for submitting your question on our Ask An RV Question Page.
Based on the description of your symptoms there could be several causes including bad or weak breakers on the generator itself. The wiring on the generator outlet could be loose or corroded. You could also have an issue with a ground.

There could also be some internal problems with the generator itself. You are going to have to take your RV in and have it checked out.
Sorry that I could not be of more help.
