I take it you metered for voltage at the shore power outlet, and at the cord end itself where it plugs into the RV, is there a buck/boost transformer..if so does it have a breaker, are there fuses at the inlet receptacle. Are all GFI outlet breakers in the RV checked for normal position?

Testimonial: "Thanks. Will try the GF breakers again today with the inverter on so the power will be on in the coach and see it they reset. "

Not sure what type of RV you have, but if you have AC power inside with a generator running onboard, but not when plugged in to hydro, check that you don't have an automatic switchover that is malfunctioning. Power cable to RV will enter in to an auto switchover box if you have one, then from there, in to coach.

Dometic 2652 has no power from generator or shore power fuses are good have been troubleshooting but no luck


At what voltage? 12 v DC or 110 VAC? Have you checked the circuit breaker in the power distribution panel? Is the outlet the 110 volt cord connected to hot? Is the 12 volt converter producing voltage? The only thing that exists between those components is wire. Look for the not so obvious problems like a wire pulled out of the back of the plug the 110 v cord is connected to or inside the power distribution panel for wiring problems.

Replaced coach batteries and still not working


There is a relay that operates when you hook up to shore power that switches from battery power to converter power. It also charges the batteries. If you do not have battery power then suspect a faulty relay. It is located inside the power converter.

No power to outlet on drivers coach side


Locate the 12 volt fuses. Not all coaches have them in the same location. Some are in the power converter, other locations are inside cupboard doors . Once you discover the location of the fuses, one of them will need to be replaced.

Where is the interior cable outlet on a coleman cts192rd?


If it has one it will typically be located on the drivers side (road side, off door side, etc.) of the coach. Usually in the same general area of the water inlet, shore power connection.

Trace, no power from line one from either gen set or shore power. Have rebooted, and when I invert the coach works normal. Charge system to house and coach batts perfec


If a normal install, the shore power and generator will go through a transfer switch then to the inverter. If when inverting 120 VAC circuits are OK, then the problem must be before the inverter. I would suspect that it is the transfer switch.

Disconnect shore power, make sure generator in NOT running then take a look at the transfer switch these are in a boat or RV but either can lead to vibration problems which can lead to loosening wire connections which can lead to heating and burning. It may be something as simple as a wire coming loose. (Which could be dangerous!)
Whether or not the contacts in the relays are OK, check and/or tighten all electrical connections. It's a good idea to check and tighten all electrical connections regularly.

Some transfer switches can be repaired by replacing just the relays. Other units (like mine this year!) will need to be replaced entirely.

Heart freedom 20. As soon as shore power is applied the inverter makes a growl sound, like a stuttering switch.


STOP!!! Immediately have the shore power breakers checked by assuring both output legs have EQUAL output. If not they can either burn out the inverter solid states components or the main coach A/C, Generator transfer switch. You can usually check this with a multimeter but the shore power park managers usually have maintenance personnel to check and replace bad pedestal breakers. Does this help?

Converting the power to genertor


You should not have to switch between battery and generator, unless you are trying to use an inverter as well. Batteries are 12vdc, typically run lighting, water pump, furnace, fridge controls. Generator powers ac, microwave, television, and anything else that plugs into a 120vac wall outlet. Inverter may also run select loads, and possibly dedicated wall outlets, but not AC, fridge, or microwave (usually).

Most RVs / Motorhomes now have automatic transfer switches that will switch between the generator, shorepower, and possibly an inverter. Your coach is made during an era of transition from manual transfer switch (in form of heavy duty electrical outlet near shore power cord) and the automatic transfer switch.

There is no specific place where a transfer switch or generator receptacle are mounted on an RV. There are no rules or regulations tha cover this as far as I know. Your RV may also have an EMS (Energy Management System) that will control the transfer switch as well. EMS panels are typically located above the refrigerator or above driver / passenger seats in overhead compartment.

It is called an inverter, and it may not be hooked up, u will have to trace the source power for the outlets and at the source add an inverter to change 12 volts DC to 110 volts AC.
