Question about RVs
I had my rv plugged in to my power source and I started my generator for a couple of minutes to move new gas into the system, when I shut down the generator I no longer have electricity from my outside plug, I start the generator and I have 110

Another place to check would be at the shore power disconnect. Have the cover of and visible to look at the switches. Remember that a generator running will prevent the shore power connection at that box and if anything is corroded inside, it will not work properly. Bob provided good information to follow, you just need patience and diligence to trace the source. Having generator power but no outside shore power from a pedistal would tell me the start at the shore power disconnect.

I would be checking the main breakers on the panel to insure one didnt trip when you added generator electric. is there a breaker on the outside line at the box you may be missing? Also keep in mind, although uncommon, breakers do BREAK and need replacing. are you competent enough to use a volt meter to check the hot leads on the box and at your unit breaker box to insure you are getting power into the unit? In some older units the switch between land power and generator power was to manually throw breaker switches but automatic processors have replace them now... I would say start at the residential plug in and verify power is where it should be along the route of the supply cord...from the meter forward... if you have a converter plug, say from the 220V 30 amp that you are probably drawing down to 110V household, stick that on the meter and plug in your toaster to insure there is power coming in....IF YOU DONT HAVE A METER AVAILABLE... otherwise...test test test... your generator probably broke a circuit somewhere... now just to find it..

There is a plate on the machine:
- If it says 220 volts, there is nothing that can be done, it cannot be used here. You should have supported an American dealer because you are totally hooped.
- If it says 110 to 120 volts, it should be working with your new plug. but since it is not working, you will have to bring it to a service shop.
- If it says 110 - 220 volts, it should be working with your new plug. but since it is not working, you will have to bring it to a service shop.

SOURCE: Electric outlet does not work
LETS START HERE , MOST OF THE GFCI BREAKERS WILL SOMETIMES RUN THROUGH THE BATH ROOM OUTLETS AND THEN OUTSIDE IF YOU HAVE A GFCI IN THE BATH OR LAUNDRY OR BASEMENT OR GARAGE MAKE SURE NONE OF THE RESET BUTTONS ARE IN THE TRIP POSITION THE NEC CODE CALLS FOR ALL OF THE LISTED PLACES AS WELL AS CRAWL SPACES AND NEXT TO AC/HEATPUMP TO BE ALL GFCI AND TO SAVE MONEY AND WIRE MOST OF THESE ARE DAISEY CHAINED TOGETHER TO SAVE MONEY SO THEY PUT ONE CLOSE TO THE BREAKER PANEL AND FEED THE REST OFF IT IT WILL BE A GOOD CK I HAVE HAD MANY CALLS FOR THIS THROUGH THE YEARS

To flash the excitor circuit on a coleman ( the generator is built by generac) you need a 12 volt battery. You quickly apply 12 volts via your 120vac recepticals. NO MORE THAN ONE OR TWO SECONDS! Then check you ac voltage. Most of the time the brushes are burnt up when voltage is low. Check the brushes first. You can access them by taking the end cap off of the generator via two to four screws. The brush holder is easy to spot, two wires leading to the front of the amature. Hope this solves your problem.

your micrwave may run fine at 110 but it draws more power than the generator is putting out when the magnetron kicks on which is the part that creates the microwave causing the food to heat up. In other words the amperage is too low for the microwave. Amperage is what matters not voltage.
